‘The Art of Caring’ is another project organised by an artists’ collective Collect Connect. The exhibition is a one of the events that celebrate 12th May, International Nurses’ Day (Florence Nightingale’s birthdays). 251 artworks from 133 artists from all over the world are printed as postcards and exhibited at The Rose Theatre, 24-26 High Street, Kingston-upon-Thames, KT1 1HL. The exhibition will be open from the 12th-16th May 2015 (10am to 6pm) in the circle gallery space.
A panel from Kingston University Nursing Society (Nikki Yun, John Sutherland, Gurlal Jagdev and Daniel Waters) have also selected 15 images to print at a larger format alongside the 251 postcard sized artworks.
I have submitted three digital drawings, which was quite experimental, but I am pretty happy with the result. I used Fresh Paint application which gives a good palette of colours and brushes and it is quite fun to use it. I wanted to shaw better side of the life, the inner life of living creatures that I want to believe is nice and simple, full of love and understanding. The titles of each work was carefully chosen to express those feelings.
