A year ago, when challenged to play with her art, Elizabeth Johnson could not abandon herself to play. “I decided to go to something of my childhood which was a poetry book to help me recapture that spirit of play in my art,” Elizabeth reveals. This exhibition, Sparks and Spirit, is inspired by 101 Famous Poems, the poetry Bible of her childhood, as the springboard from which she is leaping into a new realm, an experimental freedom with paint that Elizabeth is unaccustomed with. “These paintings are not illustrations of the poems. They are emotional responses to the poetry. While poetry blows new sparks and hope into the soul, 101 Famous Poems is the bellows that blows new spirit into my watercolours. Even I do not know what will emerge,” says Elizabeth.
The Chapel Gallery, is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am-1pm and 2pm-5pm. It is located at 15 King Street in Bracebridge

There are various explanations for the term ‘ghost light’ in relation to the world around us. There is the supernatural narrative – that every theatre has a ghost, and that when the light isn’t lit, the darkness provides a chance for the dead to haunt us. And then there is the Royal Wood version of GHOST LIGHT. The kind that lets someone truly shine from within– raw, honest and open…. and that’s why he has named his new record after this mythical glow.
