Wabi Sabi Woman

Maleny Arts Retreat presents ...
FEATURE ARTIST for JANUARY is NOELA MILLS



Noela’s work is based on the concept of ‘Wabi Sabi’ – the Zen Buddhist philosophy of finding beauty in the worn, aged, imperfect and incomplete.

She uses a variety of mixed media and surface treatments to create interesting and highly individualised textures.

This exhibition covers a range of genre from total abstraction to intimate detail with each painting conveying a meaning beyond the obvious; sometimes philosophical, sometimes humorous, but always adding something special to the essence of the work.

MEET THE ARTIST – SAT. 23 JANUARY - 5pm

Enjoy a glass of wine and some ‘nibbles’ while Noela explains the concept of ‘Wabi Sabi’ and how it has influenced her work. Wander around the gallery as Noela talks about the techniques she uses in specific works, and how she creates the worn and aged effects.
