All art by JOAN MURPHY

A bright yellow sunflower and a contrasting blue background set the scene for the bronze /red Monarch Butterfly. Ladybugs set the scene. The painting is about cooperation in nature. Red, white, and black clownfish swim among green polyp.Blue Moon butterfly on sunflower. Gold frame with blue edges. Antique canvas with built-up texture. Glazing.The bird soars through the air. Textured, primed canvas is a fantastic medium and the texture has come through the glazing as the clouds sweep behind adding dimension to the scene. In the exhibition, Cultures Come Together, I use the symbol of birds flying, landing and floating to symbolise the synthesis that occurs when separate cultures try to come together in an attempt to understand each other. The symbol of our school is the Pelican and so it is taking off flying toward the Whistling Kite which is a local bird of Cunnamulla.
