This artwork is produced under the Australian South Asian Centre . It is a celebration of life, empowerment of women and thriving south asian culture.
Our work is created in the soul house gallery nestled amongst gardens by Australia’s most influential landscape designers – Edna Walling and is the former “fairytale cottage” of Paul Jennings author of Around The Twist. This space was once also a women’s refuge and now is Australia’s first dedicated wellness space for Indian, Pakistani and South Asian women and includes an active artist’s community.
Dancing Rani' was created spontaneously by Avneet Singh with colour advice from Priyanka Kaur. On Avneet's first visit to Soul house he witnessed the newly arrived women escaping domestic abuse. She is a visual interpretation of the women who raised Avneet. Powerful, intelligent, beautiful and embracing both female and male energies. She was made to inspire South Asian women especially to become empowered; and lead with self love.
