In Elizabeth Marruffo’s solo show ‘Love Spells for a Thief’ at the Margaret River gallery, old-master painting techniques will meet the world of Internet witchcraft.
While on an international artist residency in 2013 a large amount of Marruffo's works were stolen and since then she has been planning a series of painted love spells for this unidentified thief.
These sixty love spells are painted on hexagonal panels of wood, and incorporate the symbols she has developed in her practice as well as some of the mundane personal items that were stolen. The titles are love spells drawn from on-line sources that respond to the painted images in coincidental, and humorous ways, yet also with a lot of sincerity.
Throughout our lives most people develop individual associations with the ocean that are often valued and long term. From formative years playing at the seaside through to leisure activities and reflective moments the ocean is our life journey companion. It becomes part of our life style and in turn part of who we are.
Opens: Saturday 14th November 6-8 pm
Exhibition continues until 6 December 2015

So is there more design in art or more art in design?
Is design more artistic than we imagine?
Is there more design required in art?
Ultimately creativity and a communication exists in both.
