Proceeds go towards Adelaide homelessness programs
Emerging artist Priscilla Corbell-Moore's debut solo exhibition brings about two of the artist's passions, that is art and the power of humanity. Her very first art exhibition will be a fundraiser for homelessness, which includes an online art auction that commences on August 1st (to coincide with Homelessness Week) and concludes on August 21st in line with the opening event of her SALA exhibition. Proceeds of sales go towards supporting those at risk. The fundraiser is a response to recent funding cuts to services, and proceeds go towards homelessness programs at Hutt St Centre, Catherine House, Vinnies and the Pilgrim Uniting Church.
The Art for a Cause exhibition is a series of acrylic paintings commenced en plein air at City locations and completed in studio. The paintings uniquely portray transparency and light through rapid brushstrokes and simplified form in a style that can be described as modern and abstract.
The subject matter is described as the coexistence between humankind and nature, Corbell-Moore explores the themes of environment, people and places; inspired by nature, the paintings are vibrant, colourful pieces depicting landscapes, floral still-life and portraits.
Largely self-taught, Corbell-Moore is influenced by renowned post-impressionistic, modern artists from around the world such as Henri Matisse, Wassily Kandinski, Paul Cezanne, Maurice Dennis and Andre Derain, as well as contemporary Australian artists Llewellyn Skye, Meridith Howse and Marnie McKnight.
