High gloss/low sheen: the long road to Yarrabilba: Daniel Wallwork

With a background in the automotive spray painting trade, Cairns-based artist Daniel Wallwork’s art practice is strongly influenced by contemporary car culture and street art. This exhibition, based on his artist-in-residency at Yarrabilba in 2016, features a series of vibrant metallic sculptures which playfully explore and celebrate Australia’s iconic automotive culture.

ColouRED: Works from the Logan Art Collection

The colour red has historically been associated with danger, sacrifice, courage and passion. In many Asian countries it is also the colour of happiness and prosperity. ColouRED presents a selection of works from the Logan Art Collection where artists have featured the colour red.

Aboriginal dreaming and night skies: Aunty Betty Flynn

Aunty Betty Flynn has drawn on her fascination of the night sky and stories of the dreamtime to create a series of brightly coloured paintings and ceramics.

Forest floor: Elizabeth Horrigan and Sandra Johnson

Logan artists Elizabeth Horrigan and Sandra Johnson investigate the shapes and patterns found in our environment. The artists use natural materials and printing techniques to replicate the patterns and shapes found in nature to take the viewer through an exploration of the forest floor.

Eastern encounters: Anniko Kevin

Anniko Kevin has created a series of evocative oil paintings inspired by travels through Thailand and Nepal.

Coming soon: 10 March to 22 April

Jo Bone: In Depth

Jo Bone creates beautiful blown glassware inspired by found objects from the seashore, including seagrasses, sand dollars and other marine creatures. In this new body of work, the artist has revisited her childhood love of pattern and repetition. The sense of depth and layers within the surface of each piece invites intimate observation and quiet contemplation.

Sha Sarwari: Silent conversation

Drawing on his own experience as a refugee, Sha Sarwari has created a series of works which comment on the experience of asylum seekers and refugees in contemporary Australia.

Sara Irannejad: Ambiguous patterns

In Ambiguous patterns Sara Irannejad uses pyrography (wood burning) to create intricate patterns on found objects. This exhibition explores how cultural identity and one’s relationship with the environment evolve during travel and dislocation. In this exhibition, Irannejad combines Persian motifs with fragments of old Queensland houses and furniture, highlighting aspects of migration, nostalgia, history, belonging and re-establishment.

Workshop wonders XV

A special selection of student works chosen from the Logan Art Gallery workshop program. This fifteenth annual exhibition highlights the gallery’s workshop program which is an integral part of the visual arts education and cultural experience in the City of Logan.
