We welcomed over 130 people to the opening of two exhibitions on Saturday: Tim Williams Solo and the group exhibition Animal Magnetism. Both exhibitions were opened by Anthony Fitzpatrick, Curator, TarraWarra Museum of Art.
Tim Williams’ creative imagination is populated by heroes and villains from films and books. Drawing inspiration from subjects such as the ‘Phantom’ and ‘Aladdin’, Williams work is characterised by a strong and complex linear structure, creating both form and depth. This is Williams’ first solo exhibition.
Animal Magnetism is a group exhibition of artworks exploring the complex relationships between animals and the Arts Project Australia artists. Curators Jessie Imam and Nicole Macdonald say that, “Animals can serve as a reminder to us of our primal beginnings; they remain elusive, mysterious and belong to a different world. People have long been interested in discovering creatures in their natural habitat, yet also have a need to tame and domesticate them for companionship.”
Animal Magnetism will be exhibited in conjunction with Tim Williams Solo.
