I was lucky enough to visit the 6th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art featured at the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) in Brisbane, Australia. The new exhibition at GOMA is executed beautifully. The shows runs from December 5, 2009 to April 5th, 2010 located on the South Bank of the Brisbane River. Admission: FREE
Here are a few of my favorite highlights: taxidermy reindeer’s covered in crystal balls, wax-made asian men, rooms full of string and ominous film installations with intriguing sound spacing.
Originally from Germany, transplanted to Australia, Beck Wheeler works mostly with pen and ink. Her beautiful illustrations have dawned the pages of Penguin Books, Feet Theatre and Cornerstine Promotions just to name a few. She is inspired by public transport, reggae, Scrabble and crockery and prefers juice to cordial. She recently finished writing and illustrating her first childrens’ book, How Absurd! published by Lothian Books in Australia and is currently working on book of illustrated short stories.
These are just a few of my favs:
I am inspired by her simplistic, charastamic and charming characters and her ability to add the perfect touch of color. Bravo. Check out more of Beck’s work here.
