VAE will be showcasing some of the most ambitious and timely works by artists from across the region in our annual exhibition, Contemporary South. The purpose of the exhibition is to gather a survey of what creative people in the Regional South are creating. Since 2012 this exhibition has grown and expanded to become one of VAE's most well-received exhibitions.

My production process often leaves me with scraps of wood that are too small to incorporate into my work, but too big to throw away. I find myself saving these scraps for potential use in the future. After much deliberation, I found myself dipping these scraps into acrylic paint and laminating them together. This process was the inspiration for Pixel-ed.

"An abundance of light, a scarcity of light, how light defines the subject, how light is the subject, how light and subject get together and boogie a bit. Into the Light is a celebration of all of these things." - Marie Leabo-Arondeau

I express my artistic vision through abstract mixed-media landscapes. I am intrigued and inspired by the natural environment. My intent is to provide the viewer with a sense of the symbiotic relationship between the primeval elements - stone, soil, water and sky - and the lifeforms these elements nurture.
