Shadows, light and wood

Just over a week ago Fiona and I needed to go to the "big smoke - the city" (Brisbane) for business and art supplies. We took the opportunity to go to to see the Asia Pacific Triennial art show at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA).

As is often the case I can be taken with some of the detail of the art.

First a few photos of light and shadow reflections on the floor from a a room full of large glossy photos arranged in a spiral on a grey polished concrete floor.

And wood grain and rust texture from a very very large installation of rescued old building and bridge timbers.

A photo of part of the signage outside the Queensland State Library - almost looks like a 3D sculpture.

And a rainbow on our wooden dining room table - just because rainbows are beautiful.

 There is always something to catch the eye and lens.


  1. I love GOMA, don't get there often enough. The old timbers are beautiful, aren't they? I really like the Library sign, very cleverly designed, very 3 dimensional. And who doesn't love rainbows, Barry? I guess there are people who don't, but I don't want to know about them...

    1. Hi C - I'm sad to say that Fiona and I don't get there enough. Brisbane always seems so far away and there is always so much to do on the mountain. Still it is good to get there now and then to see what is happening in the bigger world of art. Go well. B
