OUR mission statement

MADE ON THE LEFT was founded in 2008 by independent designers to support Western Australian creative talent. We hold bi-annual handmade craft markets to showcase local designers.

Being on the left hand side of Australia no longer

means you'll be at a disadvantage.

Our aim is to support all creative designers and events showcasing independent labels. MOTL is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organisation. You may wonder why we promote other markets besides MOTL; it’s because it’s not about us, its about you; the buyers and sellers of indie wares. Here at the blog, you’ll discover up to date information about our latest market, the low-down on some of Perth’s emerging talents, other opportunities for artists and designers and a little bit of fun stuff too. It’s all right here… welcome!

Milk and Sleep exhibition opening June 6

After completing international residencies in San Francisco and Oaxaca over the past two years, Elizabeth Marruffo has continued to produce a strong body of work which will be exhibited at the HQ Gallery Leederville from 6th - 18th of June, 2009.

Elizabeth's work features a mix of delicate, dreamlike figurative sketches with highly realistic and sensitively rendered details.  The works in 'Milk and Sleep' are  based on personal observations while traveling through Japan, France, England, the USA and Mexico, focusing on the transformitive cycles of life and death.

A review in
artseeninwa.com by Judith McGrath describes Elizabeth's work as follows:

'each work attests to the artist's excellent command of the medium, attention to surface interest, well-honed drawing skills and an eye for intriguing imagery that engages the viewer on so many levels.'

'Milk and Sleep' opens June 6 from 2-5pm at the HQ Gallery, 6A Frame Ct, Leederville.  The exhibition will be
open weekdays 9-5pm until June 18.

Elizabeth is a full time mother and is also assisting in the redevelopment of Freerange Gallery where her next exhibition will be held.
