Inspired by – and drawing its title from – a neon work by the late Blair Trethowan, the exhibition signals the potential for change and transformation that MUMA’s new situation presents.

Arlene TextaQueen: Naked Landscapes of Gippsland and Beyond

13 October - 11 November 2010

Artist's residency at Monash University, Gippsland Campus

Arlene TextaQueen sees the world vividly. In her work, the world we know and the world of the artist’s friends and community is condensed, distilled and made more. More colour, more detail, more life, more flesh, more character. TextaQueen is known for portraits of friends located in their own intimate environment, such as their bedroom, kitchen or lounge. In this exhibition  Naked landscapes of Gippsland and beyond, she situates them in locations around Victoria and Alice Springs. Two of the works in the exhibition were created whilst on a MUMA residency at the Gippsland Centre for Art & Design, including  The artist, Gippsland 2010, a selfportrait of TextaQueen naked in the landscape, being drawn by and drawing her friend Matthew. TextaQueen shares and distills something very human in her work, giving us much of herself as well as paying tribute to her world, her community and friends. For more information...
