So the other week, Ben and I visited GOMA with our friend Phil :) GOMA is the Modern Art Gallery in Brisbane and at the moment their exhibiton focuses on Japanese art after 1989! My cup of tea :)
We found awesome Yayoi Kusama works :)
Inside "The Obliteration Room", where you get to stick up dots to transform the previously white space
Takashi Murakami gachapon figures
The mini van studio returned (a fav installation) from one of my favourite artists, Yoshitomo Nara!
Some more cute (and naughty!) figurines
Sweet inside detail from Nara's mini van studio!
The craftsman ship in the Indigenous Art section always blow me away!
My only criticism of this current exhibition is that we had seen a lot of the artworks before. It's only a minor complaint because I really love all the works they curated together!
Kohei Nawa's pixcell deer returned and also parts of pip and pop's "we miss you magic land" installation - you can see past photos I took here
The boys were especially blown away by this incredible woodblock print by Sachiko Kazama
and my favourite piece was this painting by Tomoko Kashiki, cutely titled "eating grass"
We also took a wander around west end to check out some graff
It's nice to see Brisbane getting behind artists initiatives such as the 'Pillars Project' :)
I currently have a lovely blank piece of wood that Ben bought me to start a new painting on and it makes me excited for the possibilities :)
