Clare Jaque Vasquez "Foundations"
Clare’s first solo exhibition, 'Weaving with Paint', specifically captures her stories and memories of being surrounded by three generations of Gomeroi/Kamilaroi women, navigating the complexities and journey of the modern world. Weaving with Paint takes viewers through a timeline of diverse memories and moments–including experiencing the effects of the multinational fast-food industry on Country and the roles of women as they traverse from community to cities. Clare gently encourages the viewer to think about the shifting roles between contemporary society and First Nations practices and how traditional practices have evolved to occur in the modern world. 100 x 100 cms Acrylic, Oil and Impasto on canvas
