Opening hours
9am-5pm Mon-Fri

These works by Barbara Van Der Linden, Katrina Muir and Marilyn Nelson share a feeling of joyfulness, which is evoked by the luminosity of the fluid medium. While being abstract in nature, they also evoke references to places and spaces. The artists are current members of the Tingey Painting with Parkinsons program.

Practices promoted through the program provide symptomatic relief from the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease as well as providing social support and connection. Painting sessions begin with a period of meditation and then participants are invited to listen to music and respond intuitively using quality watercolours and inks on paper. Rather than using deliberate and controlled movements, which are compromised by Parkinson’s, participants respond without thinking to the music, a process through which the unconscious mind can express itself. Resulting works are strikingly bold, lyrical and enlivened by joyous colour.

This exhibition is part of the IGNITE program for artists living with disability, mental health issues, the d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing (HOH).
