Artist explores depth of movement with new collection

The Soundtrack: Art and Movement exhibition by emerging local artist Silvia Busetto is set to be displayed in the Cocoon Gallery at the Margaret River Library from 1 February to 31 March 2019.

The exhibition predominantly aims to depict the beauty and expression of human form in movement, particular dancers and musicians as they go about their own art.

Busetto uses her watercolour for most of works but incorporates mixed mediums for a number of pieces, reflecting her constant artistic style evolution.

"I started as a watercolourist but have enjoyed expanding on the media, formats and techniques use, particularly since living in artistically and culturally rich Margaret River," she said.

Originally from a small town in northern Italy, Silvia became interested in art in her younger years spending most of her free time reading, drawing, painting, taking photographs and volunteering at a local community cinema.

She said these passions collided in adulthood when she opened comic shop Shion Art which she ran until migrating to Australia in 2013.

"Since leaving Italy and the comic shop it's my love for painting that has grown the most," she said.

"I still pay homage to my roots and use the name Shion Art and the artist signature on my paintings."

Busetto invites the local community to join her in celebrating the opening of her exhibition at a celebratory Meet the Artist event 6pm to 7.30pm on Thursday 6 February 2020 at the Margaret River Library.

As light refreshments will be provided it is requested anyone interested RSVP to info@shionart.it or 0478 622 699 by Wednesday 5 February 2020.

The Cocoon Gallery is the library's exhibition space used for talent emerging local artists.

Exhibitions rotate approximately every two months.

Margaret River Library is an accessible venue.
