Art and Soul: Flossie Peitsch
Canadian-born and now New South Wales-based, Flossie Peitsch is both a noted visual artist and a mother of six. She is also an active community artist who has involved her family and hundreds of others in major art projects relating to Australia's history and current ways of life. Using performance and installation art techniques, as well as traditional painting and drawing - and also women's crafts of embroidery, tapestry and knitting - Flossie loses few opportunities to engage the imagination and creativity of those involved in the projects and also those who witness them. This is an intriguing and richly illustrated book focused on an extraordinarily vibrant and effective Australian artist who operates slightly outside the mainstream.
