Artist Ebony Blackley paints from a state of presence hoping to awaken the viewer to the space between thoughts.  Exhibition opens 7 June 6.30 pm at Kidogo Arthouse Fremantle. Not being tied to a concept allowed a freedom for a vast array of painting techniques to arise. Contrasting colours play with the eye, lines twist and fray, shapes become sculptural and repetition lives in rhythm. ​The artist asks you to forget what you know and see what you see. The painting becomes the catalyst to create a “frame of no mind”.
