Lee FullARTon is an artist from Queensland Australia. FullARTon began her travels to India and Nepal in 1991, from that time and with many return visits influences from her connections to culture, people and places have inspired and been embedded within her works.
The works on view here are based on her experience in India and therefore has titled it as “Sampurṇata: Completeness”. These works were a part of her solo exhibition held at Ipswich Art Gallery, Queensland Australia. FullARTon shares her experience of being enveloped in the intensity of India – its spirituality, humanity, history, story, people and places – which satisfied the artist with a consciousness of completeness.
In the artists words….
“My senses and love of art were completely nurtured, simultaneously I was enveloped in the intensity of India – its spirituality, humanity, history, story, people and places satisfying me with a consciousness of completeness. The lasting sense of Sampūrṇatā of the Sanskriti experience is expressed in the making of the four main panels accompanied by three small section views. The smaller works represent fragments of being that seek wholeness, fulfilment and completeness. Completeness is not an end point; it is about having all the necessary parts to be whole.
During the residency serendipitous moments came to me as if sent by the gods and goddesses – met by my willingness and sense of adventure I was open to act upon these moments and experiences and bring home lasting images, memories and the essence of the artist in India.”
