In the background of this shot you can see glimpses of Claire's monoprint portraits-among my favourites of her work in this exhibition (we bought one). Claire produced a richly drawn (but with a print and painting or two) portfolio of still lifes (and a portrait or two), inspired by her domestic environment. They looked amazing.
Maxie's sculptures are much bigger and more ambitious in scope and scale than a year or so ago. Her paired works are beautifully constructed and composed, and obviously popular with gallery goers judging by her success in the Queensland Sculpture Awards last week.
The Q Gallery is a beautiful space and ideally suited to the scale of their exhibitions.
All the family were there. The kids had lots of space in The Q foyer area for dancing, jumping and playing games with Spiderman and Batman. Ella was over the moon to be wearing her Mummy's Scottish "tilt" for the first time. Jody wore her kilt in Scotland when she was 5, but it seems to fit Ella just fine already. I bet Jody looked just as cute as Ella does in it.
