FEM-aFFINITY @ Arts Project Australia

Curated by contemporary artist and academic Catherine Bell, FEM-aFFINITY brings together female artists from Arts Project and wider Victoria whose work share an affinity of subject and process. By situating female Arts Project studio artists alongside other female contemporary artists, the exhibition seeks to uncover shared perspectives and variations on female identity.

O’Brien’s use of the repeated arc motif based on the architectural form of the arched window is magnetic in effect, drawing attention to the many complex layers.
