Exhibition ‘Local Australian Gothic’ at The Parkes Shire Library

Tue July 3 at 10:00 am - Sat July 28 at 6:00 pm

3 to 28 July 2018

Alice Stokes returned to Parkes in late 2017 after a number of years honing her creative skills and process in Berlin and is sharing some of her work with Parkes Library for an exhibition during July.

Due to Alice’s love of film noir and the colour black she primarily draws with graphite on black paper or charcoal, creating stark, evocative images that are only revealed as the light catches the graphite.

Upon returning to Parkes, inspirational focus eluded Alice…

So here returned to my childhood home.

My mind doth roam, through ideas to comb.

What to draw in monochrome? – Alice Stokes

…Until the screeching of an Australian raven demanded attention of both the eyes and ears. Recently the subject matter has extended into other backyard wildlife in the nocturnal Australian landscape.
