Underneath the Veneer is all about celebrating the real you. The world is full of judgement and the judgemental, so we as humans wear a different hat, a different cloak to protect ourselves from the barbs. So much so, after a while, this cloak becomes a part of our DNA. Dare to peek under that and there you'll be.
The works in this exhibition celebrate all that we are under that veneer. Vibrant, multi-faceted, complex, abstract, bursting with colour, energy, spirit and more. It reminds us to embrace who we are every now and again - perhaps most of the time - we should come out and air our true selves.
Neis Wai the artist believes art is fundamental to our quality of life and is inbuilt into our genes to crave aesthetics. It's her desire to bring this consciousness to people in her practice. Find out more about Neis Wai when you register and you can follow her on Instagram.
