Dashed into the Queensland Art Gallery and GOMA yesterday while I was in Brisbane. The 7th Asia Pacific Triennial is the major exhibition there in both galleries at the moment. I was particularly drawn to the Papua New Guinea performance masks and the brightly coloured carvings. The masks are full of movement and life and more subtle in colour than the carvings.
The "Dilly" bags by aboriginal artist Lorraine Connelly-Northey were powerful pieces. I had seen smaller works of her bags previously so was thrilled to see these larger works. You would enjoy these works Susan, a pity you live so far away.
While I was racing for my bus I saw this beautiful pot by Milton Moon, dedicated to artist Ian Fairweather, I missed my bus.
All images are below, as I haven't figured out yet how to insert the photos next to the text. The poor images I took with my iPad, sorry, I will need to take better shots.
