Lightness and transparency in new exhibition
Lightness and transparency are the focus of the new art exhibition in Ettalong.
Sculptures by artist Boyd McMillan will be on show at the Re:Publik Cafe until early September.
Mr McMillan said he used native plants in creative ways: "The lightness and transparency from the nature of materials combined with visual references are strongly aligned to Japanese treatment of forms.
"Colour is an important element of the sculpture," he said.
His artwork ranges between naturalistic and expressionistic.
Fresh from his exhibition at the Gosford Regional Gallery in April, Mr Boyd's sculptures at the Re:Publik Cafe will be wall art.
However, there will also be a few free-standing pieces.
"With my work, I try to refresh the perception of the landscape and to blur the boundaries of forms between plants and other forms such as birds and boats," he said.
Mr McMillan is the fourth artist to exhibit at the Re:Publik Cafe which opened last August.
Currently, the Cafe has an art schedule for exhibitions, bookings reach well into 2018.
