Have you ever wondered ?
Miles Allen has been searching for and gathering found objects for many years. The diversity of such items brings together old flattened rusty tins, re-formed discarded wire, the repetitive patterns of bicycle chains, the weathered textures of old fence posts and stories around boundaries. Miles orchestrates this eclectic mix to tell his own stories of country and human interaction in the creation of objects. Influenced by his travels and work in remote Aboriginal art centres, he encourages viewers to look again and to re-think their relationships to everyday items. Have you ever wondered asks questions about our sense of ownership, possession, repurposing and the ever-changing element of life and time passing.
Naked Beauty Displayed
An exhibition of paintings and drawings by local artist Glenise Clelland. For centuries, the human figure has been the most complex and eloquent subject for an artist to draw and paint.Glenise acknowledges the importance of life drawing in her artistic development. She still uses the live model to hone her powers of observation and as a stimulus into explorations of composition, colour, texture and form.This exhibition shows the artists’ love of the figurative often placing nude figures in her local Noosa landscape.This exhibition is an opportunity to see the development and evolution from the artist’s first marks on paper to the creation of a larger body of work. It is homage to, and in praise of, the human form.
