Significant Australian artist Bill Yaxley shares lively commentary and stories about his time on Redlands Coast on Quandamooka Country’s Lamb Island (Ngudooroo). Charmed by his surrounds and studio, Yaxley has used colour, texture, movement and humour to perfectly capture his experience of the island. Larrikinism, storytelling and his unique approach to painting and sculpture in this exhibition are all typical of his work. Curated by Bonnie Melrose.
An exhibition presented by Redland Art Gallery in partnership with Bruce Heiser Projects.
