Once Upon A Time
May 17, 2012 § 3 Comments
Emily Hill re-discovered Watercolour in Papua New Guinea. Something is not quite right with that statement. Papua New Guinean art is either tribal carvings, or acrylic cartoons. The delicate world of washes, cauliflowers and flicking is a world apart. But in PNG, Emily learnt the joys of a drop of water here and a splash of Quinacridone Gold there, and the result was a passion for watercolours, which has evolved into the exhibition that opens in less than 48 hours.
In a time that once was, and in a country that believes in the unexpected, here Emily offers a portrait of a young Huli Girl dressed in preparation for a Singsing.
