According to Luke

Rosanne Dingli’s new thriller According to Luke received a Western Australian launch with an innovative twist. Collaborating with award-winning artist Robyn Varpins, Rosanne Dingli introduced a visual aspect usually missing from a book launch. Using the narrative for inspiration, the artist interpreted 34 icons and other religious art which decorated the gallery for the 4-day exhibition launch at the end of May 2011.

Readings were held among a scintillating array of icons, and a slide show that illustrated the thriller with a movie-like trailer, complete with locations, actors and credits.

Autographed books, paintings on aged timber, canvases and sculptures were available to an eager stream of thriller fans.

The launch attracted the media, among whom a journalist from the Artists’ Chronicle and another from the Fremantle Voice interviewed author and artist in tandem. ‘We do not know if this is a first for Perth,’ Rosanne Dingli said.
‘It is the first time I collaborated with an author,’ artist Robyn Varpins said. ‘I loved the whole concept.’
