A Sense of Wonder
Address: Brisbane, Australia
Date: 2-30 July 2019
'Backyard', acrylic on canvas, 90 x 60cm, 2018
The ideas captured in this exhibition range from viewing an ordinary urban backyard with a renewed sense of awe; contemplating the vastness of space; observing nature on a grand scale or in miniature detail; transforming natures objects into playful expressions; whimsical interpretations of special events in our lives; impressions of an augmented reality; the creation of fantastical creatures; illuminating the effects of make-believe and art-making on children or simply portraying the ocean’s gifts that are washed on to land.
By viewing the world with a renewed sense of wonder, it can offer a simple and innocent fascination with the things that already exist in our daily lives and capable of breathing a new lease on life.
