Nel Hume: Open

Wed, 11am – 3pm

Preview 11 October, 6 – 7.15pm

Dry Water Arts Centre

This raw and honest collection of work tells an emotional narrative about a journey through and out of a challenging childhood, suffering from anxiety and OCD.

In her first solo exhibition in several years, Nel Hume, who has been making marks and expressing herself through paint since early childhood, offers a unique insight into the mind of an anxious child, facing a world she didn’t feel part of and several years spent alone, unable to attend school. With abstract, expressionist paintings depicting the defining life experiences along the way, this diverse collection of paint, print, book making, and conceptual pieces explores how art became both the saviour and catalyst for this young artist finding her way from dark to light, from closed to open.
