Jillian Ciemitis’ first solo exhibition broke attendance records for the Ellis House Gallery in Bayswater, Western Australia. Cited as “being reminiscent of a contemporary Decarava” (Andrei Buters, Perth Voice, 24/01/09), the work attracted extensive aclaim and interest.
The exhibition presented contemplative black and white narratives, counterpointed with reflective images of world renowned Jazz saxophonist Troy Roberts and blues legend Matt Taylor.
