FUSION FINE ARTS................

Shannon Hamilton and Rob Forlani will show vibrant new works in their joint exhibition, SOUL.

It's not the first time these celebrated artists have collaborated-both were part of a group show of Australian artists held in New York in 2005.

Since then, they have continued to carve out international reputations; Rob showing work in San Francisco and Stockholm, while Shannon has celebrated sell out exhibitions in Singapore more recently.

SOUL will be officially opened by media personality, Tina Altieri (picture with son Jackson).

This private commission entitled "When all is complete. The missing piece" will be on display during the exhibition.

"It was a pleasure, as an artist, to share some family time with Australian media personality Tina Altieri and her long awaited son, baby Jackson, and in doing so, share their glorious, intimate bond.

"This portrait speaks volumes about a mothers overwhelming feelings of true love and completion." Shannon Hamilton said.

In SOUL, Forlani's bold and tactile abstract works contrast strikingly against Hamilton's vibrant and emotive figurative paintings.

The joint exhibition starts September 30 and continues until October 17 at Fusion Fine Arts, 4 Zephyr Mews at the Mandurah Ocean Marina.

The gallery is open 7 days a week from 10am to 4pm. Call 9582 7455 or view the exhibition online at www.fusionfinearts.com.au
