WONDERLAND .............the artist statement .

Starr’s latest solo exhibition is based on the beloved Lewis Carroll fairytale Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, taking influence from the classic Disney movie. She has also drawn upon various other iconic images and a touch of the current dark and far more sinster Tim Burton movie showing Alice as an adult.

Starr’s work shows the journey a modern woman takes as she struggles to hold on to traditional values. iPods, Facebook, Coke Cola and the Twilight phenomena are all intertwined as she navigates her way through an ever changing technological world.

Whether it be ‘Wonderland’ or Brisbane, this exhibition is brought together by the unique style and colourful imagery that can only come from one artist…. Starr.

this exhibtion opens in brisbane in dec at the REDHILL GALLERY  .......will be the offical unveiling of the ALICE SERIES. xox

I heart ROLLERSKATING.......

So yes I love too rollerskate .....................LOVE IT . oddly this pair are very easy to stand in most days while i am painting ........however did u think i got all the energy into my paintings , its happens as i swish past . lol . Well what dose go on in an artist studio is always fasinating i guess .Mainly a lot of FOXTEL noise in the back ground . Noise is the important thing as i really dont wanna feel alone . Yes if you dont like your own company then this occupation might drive ya mad. Van gogh went mad but i dont think it was from foxtel or rollerskating in his studio . Would be a boring world if all artists came out of the same mould.

"I feel the need , the need for speed"

Well thats a quote from TOP GUN. a classic 80's movie we all loved even if just for tom and the thought we too might get to have a lamb roast with him. I am not a risk taker at all . I have no interest in anything to do with anything remotely risky . So no jumping out of planes for this girl. Instead i prefer to capture the action all on canvas . I totally love indy /formular one this is a memory from my childhood . My dad would watch this almost every sunday  too me it seemed like it anyways. I admite to finding the whole thing rather interesting ????? so now i love the challenge and patience it takes to paint this series .................lots of detail and concentration is needed with the most complicated of subjects . Tour de france and horse racing are also other favs..........xox
