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”. There is something for everyone at this experiential exhibition.  Kidogo Arthouse - Rear 47 Mews Rd   Bathers Beach   Fremantle Opening Thursday 7 June 6.30 pm -9.30 pm ( Fri 11am-4pm)  -  (Sun 11am-4pm) - (Mon  11am-4pm)  -  (Tue  11am-4pm) -  (Wed  11am-4pm) *Closed Saturday
