Octopode reflections..



Does this octopus make my derrière look big :) Smooth, shiny, sensuous sculptures seen in the Linton & Kay Galleries on St. Georges Terrace.. these were taken on my last visit to the gallery a few months ago..


Must try and get back there before the Black Swan Prize for Portraiture exhibition closes on Sunday.. Sunday is shaping up to be a busy day! This was my amazingly talented niece Jessica's portrait of her father, the likeness is brilliant.. do you remember the mural she painted for me, still looking gorgeous. I would hate to be a judge in a competition like this.. well any competition really :) I simply would not be able to make the decision, what can I say I'm a Libra! Have a good weekend, take care and stay safe..

  14. That top one is pretty cool. Not quite all the fluidity of an octopus. After all, it's metal.

  21. Ha ! Cthulhu was there !!!! ^^ (I say that because of the octopus sculpture)

    Those pieces of art are very impressive ; I like the infinite symbol in inox, like that : it is so interesting on the interpretation. And what surround it is very intriguing too.

    But I find the painted portrait so impressive... Wow.

    I understand why you want to go back in this exhibit before it end : it is indeed inspiring.
