Betelnut and Bush brooms

I apologise in advance for not updating this blog for some time now, but I come with good news as Emily is still painting and has recently exhibited in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. The exhibition was inspired by the life, the people and the culture of Papua New Guinea and part of that collection was a series of portraits.
The portraits were largely inspired by the recent poorly organised 4th Melanesian Festival of Arts and Culture held in the nation’s capital and regional centres around PNG. Inviting Melanesians from throughout the Pacific, they gathered in locations and despite the logistic issues, the participants proudly displayed their rich history through voice and movement.
More to come.
