  “Anytime of Day” by Leroy Bolden   Colour pencil on paper   £ TBC   I get my inspirations from the air.  Most times, the picture is already there, I  bring it out on the canvas. Like a big glob of clay---one thing leads to something  else and then you got a picture. (BRC)  I have been actually living in New York City from 1998 or 1990's.  But I have been  coming to New York City since I was 9.  What I hate about New York City is the   systemic racism here. In the South it is more open, in your face.  In the North, it  is closed, in the distance, behind your back.  The thing that comes to mind when I  think about what I love about New York City is the openness.

I’ve been coming to the Art Programme for 3 years and doing lots of learning and growing. Art has given me a chance to express myself and become a better person.  My thoughts are me.  I have come through the fire on my journey through art and life. Like the phoenix I’ve been reborn with a new fire of life.     My art pieces represent my home, Aotearoa (NZ), and the beginning of time.  I give thanks to the many gods: the children of Ranganui (sky father) and Papatuanuku (earth mother) and Ruaomoko (being the youngest child).  The phoenix represents my reborn spiritual well-being.”

  “Faces of Change” By Cheryl    Charcoal on paper  300 x 230mm  Melbourne- Open Canvas   SOLD    If you are INTERESTED in buying this piece then please contact us!    For Cheryl, “art is a healer, a therapy – a soft place to land”.Living in apartheid South Africa, when people of colour weren’t able to get formal tertiary education, Cheryl forged a path for herself as a pattern maker and fashion designer. During this period of her life, Cheryl experienced repeated mental and physical abuse and violence.  At the age of 33, Cheryl and her only child moved to Brisbane. With her qualifications not being recognised, being a single mum, and not being eligible for Centrelink. When the global financial crisis hit, Cheryl lost everything, including her house and businesses, after which she declared bankruptcy.   During this time she also became very ill, both mentally and physically, and moved to Melbourne in 2009 to start a new life.  In 2013 Cheryl’s child, who is transgender, attempted suicide several times. Cheryl moved in with her child, but their tenancy was not secure in several of the places they stayed. After a breakdown, and suffering from trauma, anxiety and depression (something she has lived with for many years), Cheryl’s journey into homelessness started. During this time she stayed with her daughter’s friend and also in squalid conditions in a rooming house.  Cheryl eventually found accommodation with Womens Housing Limited, where she founded an arts-based initiative focusing on women, particularly women who are tired, broken, homeless, and/or socially and financially disadvantaged.  Today, Cheryl’s hope is that her story of resilience, strength and hope in the face of adversity will inspire and help others.
