Talented emerging Sydney-based artist Jaimee Paul has an upcoming exhibition at Suki & Hugh Gallery, “All that you’ve become”. Featuring a body of watercolour paintings and drawings, she hopes to “foster memories in each of us; a story of family, of childhood, of connection, of loyalty and being proud of where we come from”. When she lost her father earlier this year she made the decision to channel her grief into her art to create something positive.
Her father, Chris Paul, was a champion bull rider, dog whisperer and horse man. Jaimee who is a self-proclaimed environmental warrior herself often uses her practice to create awareness around endangered species.
Jaimee believes: “Art has the power to evoke emotions from audiences not usually partial to stare inside the eyes and soul of a furry being. Fostering personal connections between human viewer and animal subject I hope to fulfil my purpose of creating meaningful art leading to positive changes in today’s global climate”.
Exhibition opening 18 November 2017, 3-5pm
Continues until 17 December 2017
