Exhibition of artworks by Farouk Hosny
We attended an exhibition recently at the Opera House Gallery. If I am
honest, I went as much to see the gallery space since we have beeen
offered it for an Australian Quilt Show later this year.
This is the first piece I saw as we walked in and I assumed, since I
had heard that the artist (male) was a painter, that it was dribbled
paint. It wasn't, it was textile, worked and overworked, mostly in
finer DMC pearl cottons and every sort of fabric scrap you can
imagine. I wanted it, but at the price they were asking I just
couldn't have it. It is the same price as the four wheel drive Jeep
Grand Cherokee that we have just bought!
