Transformation - International Womens Day Exhibition by the Food for Thought Network
Seven urban and suburban Greek women artists working in media as diverse as oils, acrylics, egg tempera, gold leaf, textiles, wax, digital photography, screen printing, and pyrography have been selected because they have been determined to practice as artistic image makers in the face of traditional roles, and in particular relationship, as women, to traditional culture.
'The seven Greek Australian women artists: Anne Warren, Chistiana Fanaritis, Helen Sartinas, Nikki Doudoulis, Dora Kitinas, Thalia Andrews and Tina Sideris in this exhibition are from across three generations and various Melbourne suburbs. They take inspiration from the private worlds of family, religion, mythology, and inner landscape, but also from the intimate place of their role as mothers, daughters and keepers of culture.’ Elizabeth Gertsakis (Melbourne art historian, writer and artist)
