A fresh new year naturally inspires a renewed sense of hope and motivation to realign, we face the future with optimism and resilience.
In this spirit, Saint Cloche is very pleased to bring you ‘The Awakening’ by Melbourne artist, Holly Terry – a body of work inspired by Holly’s journey as a student of yoga, and in particular her studies of Ashtanga yoga. Sanskrit for ‘Eight Limbs’ Ashtanga yoga provides a framework of the practice of yoga, an intricate journey from the external to the internal world of our being.
The practice of yoga is a great tool to liberate the mind and build a foundation of inner fortitude, Holly’s interpretation of this ancient practice through painting, expresses this enduring source of wellbeing.
We are also so excited to welcome Alex Mumby to the gallery on Sunday 6th March to perform a sacred Cacao Ceremony + Sound Healing to open the exhibition. Alex is Holistic Wellness Coach, Meditation Teacher, Sound Healer and Neuroscience enthusiast who has brought together her wisdom, experience and passion to create her own sacred practice.
“I create a safe space for curious individuals where connection can be made, and their systems can regulate and rejuvenate. I guide my clients in getting to know their own nervous system through sound therapy and healing frequencies backed by neuroscience.
I base my work in the belief of the deep importance of feeling all parts of ourselves and honouring these, through compassion and love in order to release blocked energy and bring harmony to our whole being. I offer a range of life resources and tools that aim to assist my clients to live balanced and authentic lives led by clarity and love.”

“A journey to living a meaningful life, ‘The Awakening’ draws together key practices around self-discipline and self-study as a process to reach a blissful state of being, as outlined in the historic text, ‘Yoga Sutras of Patanjali’.
The narrative of ‘The Awakening’ unfolds through a vivid visual representation of practices that move between the physical, external world and the subtle, inner landscape made-up of feeling, thought and emotion that exist within each of us. From practicing non-violence to deep concentration (meditation), it is thought that by following these practices we can reach enlightenment.
Rooted within the voluptuous and organic shapes of ‘The Awakening’ is the key concept that our internal being is deeply connected to the external world, gently flowing together as if one could not exist without the other.”
Characteristic of my work and as all things in life, is the subtle contrast between strength and softness, which play a key role in the conceptualisation of ‘The Awakening’. Using soft, muted palettes, and organic shapes which dance with heavy layering and deep texture, is the exploration of my own personal journey across the practices of yoga in search of a meaningful life.”

About Holy Terry
Holly Terry is a Melbourne based visual Artist and Yogi. Drawing inspiration from the subtle and non-subtle yogic practices, Holly’s abstract works explore the depths and layers of physical movement, form, and non-physical practices such as pranayama and Prana.
A self-taught artist, Holly’s work is feminine in form and palette, though met with a subtle strength using texture to create depth. Creative since childhood, Holly moved in and out of artistic expressions throughout her teenage years and early adulthood, exploring installation, sculpture, digital and illustration before solidifying a more formal, regular painting practice.
Holly’s work is held within various private collections, and has been featured in numerous publications and collaborations.
