WILDS OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA - a celebration of Western Australian native flora

13 October - 23 November 2010

In these latest works of Western Australian floral forms Ian de Souza has developed a way of painting that allows him to explore increasing abstraction.

He combines the ancient Chinese art of painting on rice paper with a tradition-breaking method of his invention.  de Souza is of Portuguese, Malay, Chinese and Indian heritage.  Merging a traditional Chinese medium with his own inventive method of using it, adds a deeply personal dimension to his creative expression.
