'DUALITY ART EXHIBITION' Innisfail Advocate, Tuesday, November 8, 2005 - Page 3.

"Inspiration was right on the doorstep for Kerryn Madsen-Pietsch when it came to creating "Light, Time and Facades".

The longtime Innisfail artist has worked out of her Rankin Street studio for eight years but it wasn't until two years ago that she suddenly noticed a simple but captivating sight just across the road.

Ms Madsen-Pietsch has based her latest piece, part of Sugarama Gallery's new exhibiton "Duality", on the reflections of Rankin Street buildings in windows across the street.

She said she had been snapping pictures of art deco buildings to finish a film when she stumbled on the images captured in her painting.

"It was late afternoon light and it's (image) been the basis of mono prints before this - but I'm very happy with this result," Ms Madsen-Pietsch said.

Fifteen Innisfail Art Society Members are part of "Duality" which opens this Sunday.

Stasia Abraham, Annette Anderson, Barbara Brayshaw, Jacque Duffy, Jean Giarola, Yvonne Hering, Sandra Hodgson, Belinda Mangano, Sally Maroney, Lou Micallef, Liz Provians, Suzanne Shannon, Anita Berry and Cliff Madsen and his wife challenged themselves during workshops leading up the exhibition which were run by James Cook University lecturer Anneke Silver and curator Melissa Waters.

The resulting artworks range from water colours to prints and sculptures.

"Duality" opens at 2pm on Sunday in Mourilyan's Sugarama Gallery and members of the public are welcome to be part of the opening. The exhibiton will run until January (29th).
