From the Inside Out is a group exhibition of female artists that explores the variety of ways that artists create personal narratives and celebrates the power of drawing to reflect the complexity and diversity of female experience.
These artists utilise the immediacy and directness of the drawn line to document experience, lived or imagined, giving form to memories and private thoughts. Taking inspiration from literature, popular culture and folklore, the artists’ use drawing to tell personal stories about age, sexuality, gender, the domestic and politics.
The works incorporate assemblage and collage, testing the boundaries of drawing as it merges with sculpture. Traditional craft techniques such embroidery, quilting, and domestic materials are employed as a conceptual strategy from which to explore the construction of female identity. Exploring states of being, both interior and exterior, the artists tell stories that are as personal as they are universal.
