Mali Isabel's debut solo exhibition, Rainbow Dreamz, opened at the Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute on Friday 15 April 2022. The Rainbow Dreamz exhibition was an explosion of colour and creativity featuring 130 newly created, original artworks. The exhibition took over Tandanya's four main gallery spaces and was on display from the 15th of April until the 18th of June 2022.
"Rainbow Dreamz was a deeply personal and vulnerable exploration of overcoming, self-discovery, and finding a state of inner peace. The artworks created for the exhibition were like a series of journals on canvas, documenting a journey of transforming trauma and negativity into one of acceptance, self-love, and understanding. Drawing inspiration from the experiences I have had, the places I have been, and the people I have met, taking pieces of everything and everyone around me to create stories and artworks that spark thoughts of hope and equity for all. Through a spectrum of colour, emotions, thoughts, and moments, each canvas is unique and individual in its own way, whilst they work together harmoniously to create a beautiful anthology of rainbow dreams."
