Life Abounding explores self-awareness in the life of artist Vijaya Sen. A graduate of the ANU School of Art & Design Printmaking and Graphic Investigation workshop, this is her 14th solo show and second with IGNITE: Gallery, supported by Belco Arts. The use of watercolour gives these works a playful, luminous and uplifting mood, but they are a meaningful exploration of spiritual being, life and mental health experiences expressed through visual narrative means.
“I’m hoping a theme of self-expression and inner awareness will be realised with this show,” Sen says. “The figurative element enables me to explore spiritual, physical and emotional life using my imagination. I’ve found some clarity and enriching awareness through the process of exploring the ideas that have inspired Life Abounding.”
This exhibition is part of the IGNITE program for artists living with disability, mental health issues, the d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing (HOH).
