Plasticine Renoir on exhibit in Coolangatta

AN UNUSUAL work of art, an exquisite plasticine interpretation of Renoir's famous 1883 Dance at Bougival, is one of the prize exhibits at the Elizabeth Bousfield Art Exhibition in Coolangatta.

Back-boarded in a two-dimensional glass-covered frame, it took Japanese artist Cati Kato many long hours to piece together using a palette knife and her tiny fingers to mould the special artist's plasticine into an impressive image of the great French master's colourful and coveted painting, today worth tens of millions of dollars.

With a price tag of $3500, the Kato replication is among a collection of fine works - oils and watercolours - hanging in the Kirra Hill Cultural Centre Art Gallery exhibition which finishes on Friday, June 14.
