An Exhibition by Lissy Elliott. My goal for this exhibition was to create a beautiful body of work inspired by the rainbow. Not only does this natural phenomenon spark universal joy but it is also the symbol of gay pride.
With this work I hope to bring celebration, fun and humour to the LGBTIQ and broader community after an intense year of politicians debating our human rights, the plebiscite and of course, Orlando. I have combined the tradition of reclaiming negative words & phrases with tongue-in-cheek humour to remind us of the power of language and that we can make anything our own with a positive spin.
I invite you to breathe out, immerse yourself in rainbows and celebrate our beautiful, diverse and vibrant community with my rainbow collection.
