48: Sabine Amos
15 August to 28 September
Sabine presents a stunning series of Mandala’s reflecting virtues and values expressed with vibrant colour and intricate detail. Sabine was the winner of the Frankston Arts Centre Open Exhibition Award in 2012 and was also equal winner of the People’s Choice Award.
“Painting ushers me into a paradoxical state of stillness and inspiration. I love witnessing the revelation of a creative piece. This mysterious and inspired space is what continues to lure me back. A deep love for colour and how it can transform a mood intrigues me and this is what I aspire to communicate with my work. These current works are an exploration of mandalas and their transformative power. There are 48 paintings in this series and each mandala depicts a virtue and have each been born out of an inspired place. The mandala that means the most to me is “Birth” the last one painted in the series when I was expecting my firstborn.” Sabine Amos.
