Even before it opens at Talbot’s Slightly Bent Books Gallery, the latest exhibition by established artist Julie Zapasa is attracting interest of the financial sort.
Gallery proprietor Helen Green says international art dealers are among those signalling intention to attend the opening of Horses and Heroines on Sunday, November 21.
Then there’s the fact that four of the 36 large scale expressionist works rendered in bold acrylic colour on canvas have already sold.
It’s the sort of result many aspiring artists may well envy but former Westralian Zapasa is modest in the face of the apparent interest this, her fourth solo exhibition is attracting.
The Edith Cowan University visual arts graduate seems far more concerned with the process of creating art than selling it, and is generous in her willingness to share the role her bi-polar experience has in making art.
