Two self-taught Hume artists are set to share their highly personal and emotive art works with the community during a new exhibition at Craigieburn.
Yelena Ashlapova and Serap Istekli will combine their works for the Soul, Spirit, Self- Art of Intuition exhibition, featuring paintings, collages and music.
They describe their work as exploring the relationship between intuition, spontaneity and deep feelings.
Ashlapova, who is from Kazakhstan but now calls Craigieburn home, said she approaches her art with style and immediacy.
Her work features paintings on canvas that are accompanied by original music compositions.
Istekli, who moved to Roxburgh Park from Turkey, primarily works with paper collage, depicting landscapes and figures.
Mayor Drew Jessop said the exhibition would explore the dynamics of art and reception.
“These works question the effects of nature and meaning-making across several platforms, including painting and music,” he said.
“I highly recommend taking the time to visit this free exhibition and supporting these powerful works.”
Soul, Spirit, Self – Art of Intuition is at the Gee Lee-Wik Doleen Gallery at the Hume Global Learning Centre, Craigieburn, until Sunday, August 13.
