"A Curious Menagerie" paintings by Alicja Boyd
This is my first solo exhibition since 2012, marking the return to Inka Gallery as a member after a year away dedicated to travel and pursuit of other interests.
I have always worked in figurative style and the images are derived mostly from my imagination. I started my artistic career in Poland crafting colourful wooden birds and other ornaments in the tradition of local folk-art with a hint of surrealism. This time I am, in a way, returning to my "roots" presenting my make-believe animal stories with paint on canvas.
I usually leave the meaning open to viewer’s interpretation, and this body of work is no different.
I am a member of the Inka Gallery, artist co-operative in Salamanca Place and Hunter Island Press, organisation of Tasmanian printmakers.
