Veronica Cay: conversations with my aunt

October 16 - October 30

A conversation may be defined as an exchange of sentiments, observations and ideas. Veronica Cay’s new body of works reflects a ruminative dialogue with her materials and subject depiction, as well as certain historical art pieces. The drawings, canvases and ceramic figures portray the imaginary conversations that she’d loved to have shared with an adventurous aunt but lacked the opportunity. The aunt had led quite an extraordinary life. In 1936, at the age of 15, she left a very conservative family in Toowoomba to attend Sydney’s National Art School never to return home.
“The characters that populate my work all commence during weekly life drawing sessions,” Cay divulges. “Life drawing is a very physical process for me, it is where I seek connections, test my resilience and acknowledge my own frailties. I am not particularly interested in an academic transcription.”

Opening event: 3-5pm Saturday October 16
