An object is, to reconnect

IPSWICH artist Donna Davis will reach a wider audience next year when 10 of her photographic prints tour statewide with Artslink Queensland.

Each portrait in Objects and Mementos is a representation of a unique individual, represented not by their face but with images of the objects and mementos offered for the artist to photograph.

The portraits resonate with unique stories and have direct connections with the Ipswich community.

"Objects have the power to create an instant connection with the viewer, evoking strong memories such as childhood, family, pets, achievements, work, sports, activities or a loved one," Ms Davis said.

"It is these memories that act as a conduit to start a conversation about who we are as individuals.

"By using objects to create each portrait, a dialogue begins to emerge between the viewer and portrait."

Ms Davis has developed a series of artist talks, education kits and workshops to accompany the tour.

She is the recipient of the Wayne Kratzmann Art Prize in the Queensland Regional Arts Awards 2012.
