But when I thought about it, I realised I wanted to share my travels over the years but through my paintings and as they say a picture is worth a thousand words.

I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change (Musical)

BY Sherryl-Lee Secomb | 14-Feb-2018
I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE PERFECT NOW CHANGE, is a hilarious musical, celebrating the mating game, taking on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum know as 'the relationship.' Exploring the journey from dating and waiting, to love and marriage and revealing the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. Featuring eight talented Brisbane performers and a live band in an intimate setting, this show pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, 'Say, what are you doing Saturday night?'

Closing Feast • Absolute Kippleization • Rachel Honnery

BY Interlude Gallery | 13-Feb-2018
Interlude Gallery is pleased to invite you to the closing feast of 'Absolute Kippleization' by Rachel Honnery. The solo exhibition explores notions of the human and the machine and provides a bleak warning against the pressures of kipple on our natural world. Inspired by P.K. Dick’s 1968 post-apocalyptic novel, this exhibition brings together science and art. Honnery uses the tangability of discarded hard plastics to remind us of the effects that these now useless objects are having on our marine environments. As P.K. Dick warned us ‘when nobody is around, kipple reproduces itself (…) It gets more and more.’
