Awake & Dreaming: Pondering Reality
please join us for the opening reception:
Thursday 17 November 6-8pm
Exhibition: 17 November – 3 December
A lawyer-turned-painter, Selva Veeriah creates naïve and whimsical semi-abstract artworks. He is self-taught and paints intuitively from imagination. Selva starts with a blank canvas and does not plan ahead. By and large, the artworks take a life of their own. He uses colours and simplified forms to evoke warm or happy childhood memories. His work is influenced by Klee, Kandinsky, and Miro. Held in private collections in Australia, Malaysia, Italy, and the US.
