Artwork: Hugo Toro, Passing Mater (detail),, 2018, digital print and acrylic paint
Two Worlds is an exhibition by Hugo Toro, recipient of Tuggeranong Arts Centre’s 2018 CIT Diploma of Visual Arts Award.
Toro states “Mental health is critical to our lives and art plays a big part in protecting us against mental illness, or help with recovery.
The nice thing is that we can practice art at any age to exercise our brains and relax. For this reason, I enjoy producing my own art works in my home studio ranging, from drawings to paintings. I am also mentoring new artists at my workshops with the Canberra Art Workshop at M16 in Griffith ACT.
The visual creations on exhibition are a merging of three of my interests – digital photography, drawing and painting. The concept also includes the crossover of accidental images with the deliberate hand drawn work.
