Before July and August fly too far into history I thought I would share a snippet of all the wonderful openings and launches I attended in Brisbane during those months. After a 6 month hiatus in my studio I was newly armed with good company and a re-ignited passion to connect.
First was FRACTURE – a provocative collection of new works by Simone Eisler that opened at SGAR Galleries at Spring Hill, on 5 July 2013.

In the words of the artist:

“…reconfigured sections of cow horn, miniature animal skeletons and glass beads (are used) to create morphed organic sculptures that are both fragile and robust… Are they simply beautiful objects that extend nature or are they a foreboding scientific glimpse of a new hybridized and invasive life form in a post climate change world?” Simone Eisler

Each object was like a talisman hiding a secret use and meaning. They looked very tactile and I had to stop myself from reaching out and touching them. Mysterious post future artefact attraction!

Interesting work and an enjoyable evening made even more so by the fantastic guests who shared the event. See more of Simone’s work from FRACTURE at SGAR’s Website.
