Met up with a friend in Geelong to visit the exhibition "Abstraction: celebrating Australian women abstract artists" at the Geelong Gallery.  The works in the exhibition are from the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra, somewhere I haven't been for a long time.

This work by Elizabeth Gower, Then and Now, intrigued us, as we initially noticed a couple of items depicted among what appeared to be random squiggles,
then realised the whole image was made up of every-day items stacked up. Identifying all the items became a challenge.

The exhibition is on until 7th May. It is free, and well worth a trip to Geelong.

Also at the Gallery we saw Luminous Relic, an amazing and moving collaborative artwork you can read about here. It is showing until 9th July.

Afterwards I was introduced to The Dome, the Geelong Library and Heritage Centre, which has a deck at the top level with views across Geelong.

A construction which obscures part of the water view:

A crane with the You Yangs in the distance:

Some tall trees in the park beside the library:

On the way home I passed the aftermath of two bad car accidents, one of which included a fatality. A not-so-abstract reminder of the fragility of life.

  1. 'Then and Now' is fascinating. The longer you stare at it the more items appear. Move your focus a little and other items appear.
