Aged 10, Audrey’s career is on screen
WITH Audrey Bush's imagination and Joanna Kambourian's technical skills, this art duo is sure to produce something spectacular.
They have been paired up for Lismore Regional Gallery's Duo Art program.
There are six pairings of a young person with a local artist in the program.
For Audrey, 10, it all started during a Peggy Popart tour where she was asked if she would like to take part in the project.
"I'm doing this because, well first I was interested and I've actually never tried screen printing so I thought it might be nice to try it out," Audrey said.
"I'm also doing it because I would like to become a better artist and learn a few different types of ways of doing that."
For Ms Kambourian, a local artist who specialises in printmaking, it's about collaborating and coming up with new ideas.
"When you're mentoring and assisting and teaching other people they give you so many ideas and they allow you to see what you do in a completely different light," she said.
"So I'm looking forward to the process of maybe coming up with new ideas and doing things in a different way that I wouldn't normally do."
Ms Kambourian said a big part of her work was taking drawings and imagery and making patterns out of them.
"What we're looking at is seeing what Audrey has done and being able to make that into say a pattern or take those ideas and actually create something that is a little more graphic," she said.
"It's showing her the potential of this creativity and that you can take it so many places."
Audrey said she could see herself having a career in art.
"I'm interested in graphic designs like Joanna and I really want to look into doing something like the duo and mentor other children when I grow up," she said.
The artwork produced by the duos will be on display at an exhibition opening in late May.
