Level Playing Field 2019 was the fifth iteration of this innovative, inclusive and inspiring arts project celebrating self-expression and demonstrating how we are all different but socially connected artists. A unique opportunity for connection, with all participants accepted as equal and deserving of the title of artist.
Level Playing Field 2019 involved 104 participant artists across 18 group sessions between June and October. Groups as small as 2, and as large as 10. The same set of rules, same source material from the public domain, same media (oil paint), same technique (monotype), and the same colour palette (primary colours – red, yellow and blue).
Different people with different preferences and ways of working, different perspectives on each of the 13 sourced portraits, celebrating our individuality and creative connections.
I partnered with Catherine Copley of Yve Design in the mounting of the Level Playing Field exhibition at Darebin Arts Centre for the month of November 2019. All artworks were for sale.
