Amy Dynan - Self Portrait

If you are looking for something different to do next week, are seeking creative inspiration or want to fill your walls with art from an up and coming artist, be sure to put in the diary the opening night of artist Amy Dynan's exhibition - Draw the Light.

Award-winning artist Amy Dynan uses charcoal on paper to create hyper-realistic and emotive work that often provokes a visceral response in the viewer.

Dynan has studied and completed a Master of Fine Arts, Contemporary Art, Art History and Theory at the Universtiy of Sydney and is also a graduate of the Julian Ashton Art School.

From her Sydney based studio, she experiments with photo-realistic and contemporary imagery to explore her subjects in portraiture and still life using ordinary objects and scenes to embody the complexity, impermanence and fragility of our lives.

Her latest solo exhibition, Draw the Light, is a feature exhibition of the 2017 Festival of the Winds.

It showcases her latest body of work, which fuses abstract imagery and contemporary still life to take us on a journey through lush imagery. Dynans pieces explore the symbolism of objects which embody the fullness of our emotional experience in life; birth, death, pleasure, pain, eternity and becoming.

The work invites the viewer to contemplate the impermanence and transience of life, but Dynan is also beckoning us to find the celebration, beauty and joy in everyday ordinariness.
