‘Origins’ an exhibition of Belinda Nolan and Ros Lajoie’s artworks aimed to explore the concept of human origins both collectively and personally.
Belinda, through her acrylic paintings, graphite drawings and photographs attempted to understand reality as perceived by mystics and now confirmed by quantum physicists, where existence is understood to be an interplay of vibrational energy exuding light and colour. In this light filled dynamic, Belinda asks the question ‘If our brains could perceive the reality of vibrational light and colour, would we discover that our origins as a species and the environments we share with all sentient beings, connect us rather than divide us at a most profound level - beyond race, beyond national borders, beyond cultural and religious identities, into a shared existence as Earth’s energy beings’.
Ros’s artworks, through her oil paintings, draw on her heritage as a woman born in the ethnically diverse island of Mauritius with descendants from Africa, Asia and Europe. Her paintings explore the complex, racial lineages and nationalities of her ancestors as well as the beauty of the land and its people.
