I hope you enjoy the visual and emotional impact of these examples of Australian art and ceramics as much as I do. Whilst many are under copyright I have attributed the source wherever possible (and I remember).

Art Melbourne 2012
Went to Art Melbourne on 25.4.12 and was pleasantly surprised by a few of the exhibits. Many of the artists were present and happy to talk about their work. I really loved the bronzes (above) by Kerry Cannon, as well as some beautiful and very expressive and tempting photos of budgerigars by Leila Jeffreys (below) priced at $2200
Also loved these very precise and psychedelic interiors by Grant Anthony Cohen. Fascinating biography and amazing to see what a trained accountant with a love of fine and decorative arts can do when he turns his hand to painting..
I like to distract myself from some of the realities of life by visually absorbing and sometimes collecting beautiful pictures and form.
I am unqualified in this area, beyond a love of art, and an untrained eye; this represents just my taste and experience.
