It was with great excitement that artist, Tim Maley, attended the opening night of his latest exhibition, Specimens, at the Midland Junction Arts Centre .

The exhibition, which runs from 25 May to 29 June, is supported by DADAA in partnership with the Mundaring Arts Centre, showcases Tim’s love and appreciation for animals and insects in the wild.

By experimenting with digital formats at DADAA’s new digital studio in Fremantle, Tim draws inspiration from his site visits and a variety of media to further develop his creative expression.

Capturing the unique attributes of single insects, Tim has incorporated the use of digital technologies, such as an iPad and photography, for documenting his subject matter. This marks a new technique that he is fostering in his painting and drawing works.

“I like drawing animals, and insects like caterpillars, moths, butterflies and beetles. There are so many animals I can draw. I like to learn about what animals do, and about the different part of animals,” says Tim.

Congratulations to Tim and to Claire, Janice and Kerry who were also exhibiting their work on the night.
