Wow! So it’s suffice to say that life has been a little crazy since my Archibald Prize nomination (good crazy) and so it’s been a little while between posts!
So, getting back on the blogging horse, I wanted to say a huge thank you to the wonderful folks from Yen Magazine, who featured me and my last exhibition that was held at NG Gallery, ‘Night Queen’. You can find the link to the article here: http://www.yenmag.net/artery/mia-oatley-night-queen-exhibition/
It was a thrill to be featured in such a leading womens’ magazine and website, one that I have admired for some time. The article starts with “What is Paradise” and this is something that I definitely try to explore within my work.
Speaking of ‘paradise’, I have just returned from a wonderful trip to Vietnam, where I took 10 days from reality to recoup and recharge. The colours in this beautiful country are superb, its truly like nowhere I have every been before.
Since being back (I arrived home just a few days ago) I have been even more inspired to spend time in the studio painting and creating.
So thank you all for being so patient with me and stay tuned for some updates about the new works from the studio!
