Some of the Artists & Community Groups We Work With
Many of these artists and community art groups have exhibited in our annual AFTM Brisbane Festival Exhibition and some of their pieces have been acquired for the AFTM permanent art collection.
“A major influence in my work has been the exceptionally challenging journey of near death experience. I have always been spiritual in my ideas on life through this experience gave me so much of an understanding and appreciation for life. In this, my like is art and so it also brought me to better connection with my expression of self through art."
"In my work I delve into real and imaginary worlds. I force an interaction of the two. The imagery goes in to the underworld of the night and brings the night, or unconscious, in to the world of the conscious."
"I have been making art my whole life as a means of description and also as a way of expressing myself. I have suffered from mental health issues for most of my life and have had some serious problems with drugs and alcohol.
Art allows me to concentrate on something other than my own problems...it gives my head and soul a chance to rest.
