“And the air was full of Thoughts and Things to Say. But at times like these, only the Small Things are ever said. Big Things lurk unsaid inside.”
― Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things
Got an invitation for ya!
The Goddesses of Small Things is a group show featuring 10 Darwin artists, working in miniature.
The invitation itself was put together and photographed by Marita Albers, who then had the invitation printed as photographs—which I thought a stroke of genius, as these glossy, ‘snapshot’ invitations have a very different feel to the standard printed postcards typically used: that sense of the simple pleasures that fill our everyday lives…intimate, somehow, more personal…and delightfully, endearingly DIY.
It’s intimidating and exciting to be among some of Darwin’s most formidable artists at this show…these ladies are household names in the NT, their work visible not only in most art lovers’ homes, but in many prominent public spaces, as well.
Most of the goddesses have some sort of online presence—please have a look at their respective blogs and portfolios to get an idea of their work.
