Travelling Lines
Roxanne Lillis & Loren Keir
20th July to 7th August

Roxanne Lillis’ lines relate to the continuous. “It’s really the moving dot. The brush comes off the artwork for a period of review, and returns to continue my form of communication. The subject matter or impetus was inspired by the infinite rows of buildings and entangled electrical wires in busy built up areas observed during recent travels.”

Loren Keir’s lines have developed their own lives. “Some are destined to go on forever, some end where they started, some diverge in different directions - travelling and exploring, whilst others orbit the same place, drawn to its familiarity. Some lines begin to blur into others combining to become one while other lines clearly contrast their surroundings or the lines next to them. Some use those around to define themselves while others stand alone making their own impact.”

Roxanne Lillis began her studies at the Julian Ashton Art School in 1993 and achieved her Bachelor of Creative Arts from the University of Wollongong in 1999. She has exhibited regularly around New South Wales throughout the last 15 years.

Loren Keir graduated with honours from the jewellery and object department of Sydney College of the Arts. She has exhibited widely in Sydney and New South Wales and is part of the artist collective Makers Manifold.
