Not really to my taste, but some impressive pieces. All shot with my Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 lens.
“This Land Our Land” is a new exhibition by Dale Weston, Sally Harrison and Annie Clarke at Ipswich Art Gallery, which I visited today.
There is some fantastic work by Dale Weston and Sally Harrison in particular.
Dale Weston says about the exhibition:
“I am a descendant of the Wadyigny and Gayiri peoples of the Northern Territory and central Queensland. I love to paint memories of my early childhood and youth, but my greatest pleasure is to paint traditional stories about birds, animals and sea creatures. My paintings are designed to inspire and inform others about my culture and ensure that these stories are preserved for future generations.”

I wasn’t happy with my photos of the Sally Harrison works so will have to re-visit to get some better ones.
REVHEAD: the motorsport art of Eamon O’Toole is a new exhibit at Ipswich Art Gallery.
You may have seen my short post earlier in the week, here —–> Hot head (I love those pics!)
All of these shots are taken with my fixed 50mm f/1.4 lens, so apologies if I couldn’t get ‘wide’ or ‘close’ enough, it’s the only one I had with me. I think it gives a nice perspective to a lot of the shots.
I was really quite surprised by this exhibit – I am not really a motorsport fan, so I didn’t expect to like it as much as I did (and didn’t even take my whole camera bag with me!). It is actually quite fantastic – and considering that most of the Eamon O’Toole works are mostly made of hand-moulded plastic and enamel paint – staggeringly complex and impressive.
I think this one was my favourite:
These sculptures are full-size, including this one:
There were also some working drawings on display:
Which is pretty cool, when you have the actual final sculpture on display next to it:
I enjoyed these stacked sculptures of wheels too:
Some fun sculptures of parts too:
It was a fun and surprising exhibit!
