Magical, Mundane and the Mystical

Fleur Williams and Alex Milsom are part of a group show called
Magical, Mundane and the Mystical
on now at Solander Gallery in Wellington from 3-27 November

Fleur Williams, Work Life Balance, 2010
Mezzotint Etching, 61x 41cm

 "While the etchings of artist Fleur Williams are a celebration of the ordinary,
the suburban and the domestic, her images are anything but ordinary. 
Fleur draws inspiration from beauty found in the cozy domestic world and familiar chores.
Her works revel in spending time at home on the weekend tending ones ‘own patch’,
getting the chores done, all while the cat lounges around! "

Alex Milsom, Disquietude, 2010
Mezzotint, 14x16cm

"The velvety blackness and intimate scale of Alex Milsom’s mezzotints
conjure up the dreamlike world of fairytales as told to her by her late Grandmother.
These stories and imagery held deep within her psyche from childhood
are brought forth in these evocative and introspective works
to explore the myriad emotions that make us human."
