Outside In

Outside In

Outside In features the work of two Melbourne-based artists Graeme Doyle and Renee Sutton.  It captures the role that art and creativity has played in the lives of these artists, both of whom have experienced life-long mental illness.  It is a story of survival, meaning and celebration.  Shown with a selection of their artworks is a short film, commissioned by the Cunningham Dax Collection about the artists, titled Collected Thoughts.

This exhibition provides a forum for Doyle and Sutton to speak about their artworks, their creative processes, what these works mean to them and the experience of exhibiting their works publicly.  This project aims to bring the voice of these unique artists into the public arena.
