Amber Subaki begins her extraordinarily fine detailed drawings with an original “idea” and then lets her intuition guide her throughout the journey of the piece. Often taking months to complete, each meticulous drawing then reveals itself with numerous symbols uncovered within the drawing.
Subaki’s works invite the viewer to interpret each drawing as to what is relevant to their own memories and feelings. With no right or wrong interpretation, the viewer will ultimately uncover the deeper meanings through correlations with their own lives.
Exhibition: 4 - 30 Sep Monday to Sunday 10am - 5pm at 73 George Street
Opening: Thursday 4 Sep 6-9pm
Traditional drawing method Workshops: Tuesday and Friday 3.30-5pm
