Inspirations of Winter:
I’m currently finding inspiration in pastel colours floating a structure of black and white. Earlier this year I visited the APT 8 Asia Pacific Triennial exhibition at QAG and GOMA. I’m so happy that we have this gallery here in Brisbane which allows us to see some interesting and world class exhibitions. Some of my favourite exhibitions here over the years have been Kusama, Valentino and the APTs.
Some pieces I saw this time are currently dancing in my creative inspiration, and I’ve shared them below.
Notes are from QaGoma.
“All The Rivers Run Into The Sea. Over.” / “Copy. Yet, The Sea Is Not Full. Over/”
Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh, Hesam Rahmanian. Dubai.
“A recreation of the artists Dubai home-studio.
A medley of influences from Persian poetry, modernist art, illuminated manuscripts, miniature pairing, pop culture and political events, embedded in daily life and everyday objects.”
I enjoyed this one for the immersive surrealist feeling, like walking in a room from some dream where everything is in place but crazy.
Another Realm (horses)
Min Thein Sung. Myanmar.
“From Another Realm series referencing the years that Myanmar was restricted from international trade and commercial mass-production, by focusing on simple handmade toys that people created as copies of foreign toys seen on TV and in books… This work is symbolic of the slippage that occurs…when a community is isolated, but also celebrates a spirit of creativity, imagination and adaptability.”
Nge Lay. Myanmar.
