‘Glitterscapes’ is the latest series of sculptural nudes from Nathan J Lester.

Combining the nude form with glitter, Lester has created new sculptural landscape forms in his images.  The gentle curves and shape of the nude are highlighted with the play of light and shadow and the texture of the glitter.  The images resemble a surreal, other-worldly landscape.

A group exhibition by untethered fibre artists inc.

Each artist explores the duality inherent within the state of being in transit through fibre. Individual artworks examine and respond to the relative significances of journey and destination; of place, memory, time and states of being. 40 Fibre Artworks, varying sizes and configuration. The essence, the core, of group exhibiting is human interaction – imparting a message and sharing a passion.
