Autumn is holding out, there are still some leaves yet to fall

Embracing the surrealist vision of Nicolas Bruno and contrasting it with some gritty black and white portraits by Dave Brosha

Listening to Goo Goo Dolls Yeah apparently they wrote more than one song…

Looking and listening this week

I want to start out by paying my respects to the citizens of Paris and the families of those who lost their lives on the weekend. Anybody who knows French history knows the price France has already paid for “Liberte Egalite Fraternite” since the birth of the republic.

That history clearly shows unity will triumph over evil, whatever the sacrifice, every single time.

So I mentioned what I have been looking at in my last post but I also managed to squeeze in a couple more things.

National Gallery Victoria has an exhibition featuring the colour blue or more specifically the use of Indigo to colour textiles and Cobalt in ceramics. Some nice work and since it is a single room, easy to get through in a lunch break.

There were some portfolios too. Peter Lippmann does fine art and commercial work (Note there is some not safe for work content… Sorry!). Meanwhile Chris Burkard is a surf photographer having a love affair with Icelandic landscapes. He also gives a pretty good TED Talk about having the courage and perseverance to create great images in extreme circumstances.
