Hooked

I seem to have been chained to my keyboard for days so I took some time out today to visit a local art exhibition, the What we do in Queensland exhibition at Artrageous Arts and Crafts/Gallery 4017 in Deagon.

I am familiar with Tamika Petersen (both the artist [my friend] and her art) and the main reason for my visit was to see her work exhibited. Although I had seen a picture of the largest of her pieces on her Facebook page, I was not prepared for the impact of ‘Hooked on Bliss and Chaos’ in all its bruising glory. Check it out . . .

I am not an art critic and don’t pretend to any expertise but, as the saying goes, I know what I like. So I’d love to give a shout out to a couple of artists in particular, based on nothing more than my own responses to their work.

Amy Crow’s ‘Alone – Diamond’ kept me so spellbound I forgot to take a pic, despite going back three times.

And I connected deeply with Rhiannon Hetherington’s large and bold works. ‘Radiating Love’ was a stand-out for it’s – well – radiation of love. Again, no photo, but here’s another one of Hetherington’s that caught my eye again as I was walking out the door.

Stunning!

If you get the chance, I urge you to get along to Gallery 4017 in Loftus Street, Deagon. The Artrageous Experience space is fabulous, especially the garden area out the back.
