Ceramic Artist Vipoo Srivilasa presents Wellness Deity at Linden New Art

BY Zilla and Brook | 28-Apr-2021
Linden New Art presents Wellness Deity, a new exhibition by one of Australia and Thailand’s brightest ceramic talents, Vipoo Srivilasa. Running from Saturday 22 May until Sunday 22 August, Wellness Deity is a community driven project developed during the COVID-19 pandemic in Australia. Wellness Deity is a multidisciplinary exhibition featuring works from the Wellness Deity Project - a self-directed project Srivilasa undertook in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The artist invited people to submit a drawing of their ‘Wellness Deity’, a god-like being that has a special or protective power. Srivilasa selected 19 of these drawings to provide inspiration for a series of ceramic sculptures. Each deity has its own unique characteristic based on the personal stories submitted and will be accompanied by a piece of commissioned creative writing.
