Each Create artist brings with them a wealth of previous study, working life and personal experience and this is reflected in the depth and breadth of the work produced.
The 28 artists forming the Create 17 collective have explored feminism, motherhood, health and the human body, Australian landscape and environmental sustainability across a broad range of media. Sitting together in the studio, artists shared stories of searching for home and belonging, in new places, new careers, and in creative communities. The work spans from memories of childhood to recent experiences of mothering, caring for ageing parents and dispatching stereotypes.
The show opened on Friday 9th February 6-9pm at Neon Parlour, a multi-purpose creative space in inner Melbourne's Thornbury. It was opened by NCAT Create Program Leader, Tracy Paterson
