Barbara Pratt - Peony Girl - 2008


The Dress

The dress has become an undisputed symbol of woman in the western world. Beginning with this simple garment, works shown here employ a lexicon of cloth, colour, texture, and movement to convey an unabashed appreciation of the female spirit. Flora and fauna are also given fitting emphasis, pointing as they do to mother earth and the essential feminine.

Artists in this gallery include: Cathy Daley, Nicole Dextras, Jane Eccles, Gathie Falk, Barb Hunt, and Barbara Pratt.
