About the Exhibition
Insomniart embraces beauty through pain; it is about fighting illness and regaining ownership of one’s life.
Alex Moyse turned to drawing after suffering illness. Her drawings began as a distraction from chronic pain that kept her awake at night. For Alex drawing is a therapy; the beauty, lightness and delicacy of her work is inconsistent with the burden of her illness. These beautiful and delicate drawings are in an illustrative style depicting New Zealand imagery with a Pacifica feel.
