“A group of women decided to celebrate their friendship using a manifestation of the common bond - their art. A circle was an appropriate symbol for a group of friends. The group's name became 2πr (2PiR) which is the mathematical formula for the circumference of a circle.”

“Art is nourished, and friendships are woven together by common threads of tenacity that strengthen the pull, enabling the desired balance between women’s complex roles and the creative compulsion to make art.” Extracts from the catalogue for 2PiR exhibition 1999.

Today, the members are represented in both State and Regional Galleries, significant private collections in Australia and overseas and have continued with further significant studies and qualifications.

Enjoy the 2πr visual journey by delving into each artist’s work, statements, and biographies.
