Gasp! As a lover of small, collected, special treasures this wall-mounted mandala, made up of 84 pieces of loveliness {oil on board}, is calling my name! This work, titled “The Under Glow”, is just one of the many reasons I love the very personal work of Australian artist Naomi Zouwer {including object “portraits” of her family}. Her portfolio is filled to the brim with beautifully painted keepsakes, which on their own might seem trivial, but together? Well, they become their own beautiful language.

[Naomi] focuses on small domestic objects that are part of daily life. They are a mixture of functional and non-functional items; precious in terms of memories, they are keepsakes, souvenirs, some are whole and some just fragments. Zouwer’s painting of objects enhances their quality and raises their status so that they become worthy of sustained attention.
