My intentions for this morning started off ok but didn't quite go to plan. My car wouldn't start, called RACV, got it going, the delayed time to get to the station came with both car parks full.
Drove back home, walked to the bus stop and then caught the V/line to Geelong.
My reasoning for the trip was to visit the Gallery to view the free exhibition:
01 September 2018 to 25 November 2018
Gower recycles and collages remnants of popular culture to create exquisite optical patterns and explore ideas of consumerism and consumption. Her work typically involves cutting up and intricately collaging—onto drafting film, canvas or paper surfaces—collected printed ephemera, packaging material and magazine pages. As we become more urgently cognisant of the degradation of our environment and the social impacts of consumerism and global consumption, Gower’s concerns with refuse, redundancy, recycling and new aesthetics gain greater communicative potential and power.
The circles in the middle are tyres cut from car advertising.
Kaleidoscopes on jar lids.
I loved this exhibition, it was fascinating.
