A highly engaging painting about inner Brisbane at twilight/night. There is a strong sense of the city’s hilly landscape. The workers look over the CBD and invite the viewer to do the same. Excellent use of acrylic. Fine composition, colour and light. Enough detail in the foreground leading to the dancing lights in the background.
Brisbane Morning and Dusk
by Chris Foley
An appealing study of the Brisbane skyline at the beginning and end of day. The oil work shows a good use of light, tone and colour. Having ‘two’ works offers the intrigue of finding what elements are highlighted and what are hidden at different times in the subtropical city.
Sunshine on James
by Peter Hubbard
The work playfully explores a typical Brisbane outdoor gathering space. The bold use of yellow amplifies the sense of sunshine.
Suburban Symbolism in Brisbane
by Julie Litte
The viewer is drawn into a typical Brissy backyard. Well composed and painted. Strong and simple execution.
by Max Butler
The small work exhibits a strong understanding of landscape with a smart selection of colour.
Walter Taylor Bridge
by Anne Maree O’Brien
The artist produced a fine watercolour work of a Brisbane landmark. Excellent shadows and tones.
Fellows Recognition Award
by James Randall
I feel this art work embraces originality and creativity – but, most importantly it emits a personality and feeling of a Brisbane Poinciana summer. Composition is very well balanced and colour use moves me around the artwork, engaging me in a feeling of that Brisbane summer I know so well.
