Angela Brennan: Blaze

Angela Brennan, Self portrait, 1998, oil on linen, 183 x 122cm

Angela Brennan‘s work features in the current exhibition BLAZE: people made known at Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, which features portraits drawn from the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art.

The historical origin of the verb ‘blaze’ refers to the use of sound and fire to announce an individual’s arrival. BLAZE speaks of agency, visibility and a desire to communicate to a public. In this sense, the exhibition investigates the power of portraiture to convey the unique characteristics of a person and acknowledge remarkable individuals. – Text courtesy of Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery
