Emerging photography artist Peggy Maree Pullen is showcasing her work for the first time at the Gaffa Gallery in Sydney this week, with the opening night on Thursday 6th February.
Peggy has just completed a Diploma of Photo Imaging at CATC Design School and can’t wait to now take her artworks and her ambitions into the world, helping both herself and others along the way. Peggy is passionate about raising awareness of issues that matter through her photography; such as depression, body image and domestic violence. A hugely inspirational up-and-coming artist!
Peggy’s exhibition, titled ‘Religious Undertones’ is a series based on her own time in an oppressive religious group. It speaks of the emotions and memories of that time and her journey after leaving.
Peggy explains: “I find it extremely difficult to speak publicly or even in small groups about my emotions and thoughts. I also find it difficult to model or pose for other people, just as I sometimes find it strange to get others to do it for me. But when I am alone in my own space, with in my own thoughts, then I can express exactly what I want, and that is when the magic happens.”
