Leah Fraser: In the beginning there were stars - Art Collector

Leah Fraser, ‘Their touch felt like the birth and death of tiny universes’. Acrylic on polyester canvas, 92 x 102 cm. Courtesy: The artist and Arthouse Gallery, Rushcutters Bay.
  Leah Fraser’s new collection explores the creative forces of time, memory and movement in hatching human experience. The artist reflects, ‘The dust of the universe that swirled together everything around us – the Cosmic Egg of the Brahmins, the Big Bang, God: whatever it is that describes the stored energy of creation – made us. This material has been dissolving and reforming again and again, to make our bodies in the present time, and will shift again to become our future selves.’ 
By anthropomorphising narratives around creation, Fraser creates her own mythological pantheon that blends the poetry of personal experience with historical and spiritual consciousness. Her characters are everything and nothing, existing in ‘mythical time’ that has no beginning or end.
