Tuesday Marks was produced by each artist spending five minutes working on the piece then passing the artwork along for the next artist to add to. The works were created drinking warm cuppas, laughing a lot and exploring how new marks can be generated.
Founded in 1996, Hands On Studio is a leader in the field of arts and disabilities in the Canberra region, establishing a model for a creative community guided by the principle that art is fundamental to human expression and that all people are entitled to its tools of communication. Over the years, the artists who attend the program have collaborated with their peers as well as local and interstate practising artists. In addition to this, they have built relationships with various creative institutions and have continuously produced works that have been exhibited.
This exhibition is part of the IGNITE program for artists who identify as disabled, D/deaf, HOH, chronically ill, neurodiverse or who have lived experience of mental health issues.
