NOCTURNAL

July 2022 Solo Exhibition by Renee Mitchell at The Milk Factory Gallery, Bowral NSW


Nocturnal… those things that go bump in the night!

Exploring the beauty of the creatures behind the sounds of the wild under the moonlight. Nocturnal showcases two styles of works coming together in a common theme, Nocturnal Animals.


Across the two styles, carefully selected characters for their expression and movement, as much as their sleeping habits. In the scratch series of works, they are drawn in a rapid, expressive semi continuous line work in pen on paper (otherwise known as scribble). Where over extended lines help to capture a sense of


the life and movement from the creatures. A small selection of these works include colour in acrylic wash and bold gold metallic acrylics.


The second style are acrylic or ink paintings in black and white. Added into some of these works are repetitive shapes and symbols not typical in wildlife portraits (diamonds on the deer, triangles on a cat, or naïve feather shapes amongst fluffy lifelike feathers on the owl), others include bling, where the animals are adorned in bling, created in gold, silver and bronze leaf. Each in different styles of jewellery (crowns, earrings, necklaces, bangles and charm bracelets) as a form of (my idea) self-expression of the animals.

Between the two formats, a modern take on the traditional portrait share the space in a show as subtle as it is striking. Nocturnal will be on show for the month of July 2022 at The Milk Factory Gallery : ANNEX Gallery on the mezzanine level of the gallery.

Open 10am to 4pm Seven days. 33 Station Street, Bowral NSW
