Triangle Teeth Love in the Sarsaparilla and Smilax Glyciphylla

Melbourne St & Hope Street & Busway, South Brisbane QLD
In a fantastical way, the artwork aims to – through shapes, colour, and fantasy – encourage the naivety of young and emerging artists and their own imaginations. It’s by veering away from ‘traditional’ art that we hope to add to the many influences of the cultural centre and its surrounding areas. The loose versions of the plants (smilax glyciphylla) that are native, create an overlap between the real and not real, nestled among the fictitious creature. Among the colours we use Judy Watson’s take of blue being the colour of memory, and we ask, what does it mean to place a fantastical form in blue.
