THE PRINCESS AND THE PIANO: PAMELA WELSH
Fri 8 April - Sun 26 June
Mudgee artist, Pamela Welsh is presenting a series of beautifully detailed sculptures based around the extraordinary life of Princess Alexandra of Bavaria, who was convinced she had swallowed a glass grand piano as a child. Pamela’s intricately detailed sculptures portray a series of princesses who suffer from this rare psychological condition known as ‘glass delusion’. The exhibition invites us to explore their baroque, transcendental worlds which captures the hypnagogic state between wakefulness and sleep or the dichotomy of reality and fantasy.
