About the work:
Brim with Pleasure, Original Artwork by Amelia Dowling.
This piece is part of Radiant Dreams, a group exhibition showcasing the work of more than 50 artists from the Modern Times community. Radiant Dreams invited our artists to unleash their most vibrant work, embracing colour, movement and verve. The resulting works are a buoyant collection reflecting optimism, energy and hope as we emerge from the monotonous routine of lockdown.
”My work is a visual reminder to seek and savour moments of joy and play when they occur, and while we can. While pessimism and despair have marred much of 2021, I aim to celebrate the pleasures available to us now. Despite everything,” Dowling says.
