Cafe Mural: Tweety Lorikeety
21 Sep 2020 - 4 Feb 2021
A new mural in the Hazelhurst Cafe created by Emily Crockford.
The lorikeet is licking rainbow paddle pops. And always eats the gum leaves, enjoying the blue sky and sunshine.
I hope the artwork makes people feel happy and they enjoy it. Love from Emily Cinderella Superstar.
Whether creating cushioned characters from plush embellished fabric, or painting familiar scenes of still life, Emily Crockford’s artworks balance a series of seeming opposites. Blocks of strong colour sit alongside areas of intricate pattern. An energy of lyrical movement exists simultaneously with a sense of contemplation.
Emily Crockford is a Studio A artist well known for her energetic and whimsical style, inspired by the natural world. Emily’s work is held in various collections including Artbank. Her large scale murals can be found at Westpac Concord, UTS and as part of the City of Sydney’s hoardings project.
Studio A is a supported studio based in Sydney that tackles the barriers that artists living with intellectual disability face in accessing conventional education, professional development and opportunities needed to be successful and renowned visual artists. The enterprise paves professional pathways for such artists so that they can achieve their artistic and economic aspirations.
