A couple of weeks a go I did get to visit a friend in Sydney and check out an exhibition of awesome-ness which married some of my favourite things - sculptures, old buildings and the great outdoors. This was the Willoughby Sculpture Prize, at the Incinerator Art Space, a Walter Burley Griffin designed building. Yay for WBG.
Unfortunately for you the exhibition is over and only the memories remain...see below! There were some artists I knew in here too, which just makes it even better!
Geoff Farquhar-Still, Temporary Monument IV
Soozie Coumbe, Natures Toilette Brushes Series 1-3
Anita Larkin, At a Loose End
Janet Tavener, Out of the Mould.
Emily McIntosh and Marcus Dillon, Rethink and Reclaim
Maryann Mussared, Blue Buoys
Bronwyn Berman, Banksia Woman
Marguerite Derricourt Paper Moths
Because of the sheer brilliance of my host, we did get close to smelling the roses - we window shopped the annual David Jones Spring window displays in the city...some interesting installations but awful photographs by me, sorry.
Louise, intrepid landscape designer and partner in crime
roses, tulips and a whole lotta baroque stuff...and Emu eggs...
seed pods and Cymbidium orchids
And speaking of marrying things (see second paragraph!!!) its full steam ahead wedding season here at brave botanics...
