Debra Luccio’s new exhibition, The Sleeping Beauty, opens on 2 March at Steps Gallery, Carlton. The exhibition offers an exciting new series of monotypes by Luccio, each of which draws inspiration from in situ drawings and photographs made at rehearsals for The Australian Ballet’s production of The Sleeping Beauty; itself a bold work and Artistic Director David McAllister’s first production since his appointment in 2001.

Recognised as one of Australia’s foremost monotype artists, this exhibition showcases Luccio at the height of her art. Luccio’s painterly and expressive approach to monotypes and dancers-as-subject is dynamic and powerful, the product of years of focus and practice and deep comprehension of her medium, the body, movement and expression. In a year where the National Gallery of Victoria is featuring Edgar Degas’ iconic images of dancers in June, this is a perfect opportunity to see a great Australian talent approach the subject with originality, acuity and great emotional depth.
