Christina Lowry is having a fine art photography solo exhibition at the Logan West Community Centre, 2 Wineglass Drive, Hillcrest from 29 July to 3 September 2022 with Opening Night of Memento Vivere Exhibition held on 29 July. Remember to Live is an exhibition that responds to the Covid pandemic. The pieces exhibited are in the style of 17th Century Dutch painters with traditional and modern symbolism combined to create images rich in detail. Spot the noticeable addition of symbols of the pandemic such as disposable masks, toilet paper and sourdough bread. The images themselves will have you getting up close to distinguish as to whether or not they're paintings or photographs.
Christina will also be hosting free photography workshops for adults and still life drawing workshops for children at the Community Centre. Call the gallery on (07) 3412 5519 for more details. Christina has been mentioned as one of the top 5 art photographers in Brisbane recently and has a passion for flowers and animals. Still life allows her to explore themes that are important to her, like the threat and extinction of wildlife. Her Reliance piece is a fine example and a reminder that many plants rely on birds to spread their seeds. The disappearance of birds and mammals leads to a steep decline in seed dispersal, further damaging our eco systems. Find out more about the concept of the current exhibition here. The images in this article is a collaboration with Amy Gurling, head florist at Unveiling Poppy who weaved her magic with flowers in creating the images Christina had in mind. This is an exhibition that cannot be missed.
