This collection brings you new works in the this divine blue ink, along with her much loved black sumi ink pieces. Each work is beautifully float framed in natural wood.

Capturing the drama, texture and colour of the much loved hydrangea, Dean will be exhibiting a divine body of work that also includes his sought after still life works.

Due to her rapid pace and unpredictable medium, Dominique has embraced the spontaneity that comes with her work. Her hand is led by instinct, and any mistakes become part of her brushstroke rhythm. In fact, the sessions are so energetic that she has painted live in front of an audience, in an interesting performance based exhibition. After each model session, she undergoes a rigorous selection process in which only a few pieces are chosen from the many she has produced.
Recently Dominique has developed her practice to include works using blue acrylic - the delightful result forming part of this collection of all new work.
This is Dominique’s first joint exhibition with Turua Gallery. View Dominique's collection
