Selected by Photographs by Anna Carey

  • DAILY UNTIL SUNDAY 10AM - 5PM
  • IPSWICH ART GALLERY

GROWING up on the Gold Coast sparked Anna Carey's interest and fascination with mid-twentieth century architecture.

Her work overlaps both photography and sculpture as she meticulously creates small architectural models of buildings and then photographs them to create an illusion of space. As a result these strangely familiar architectural spaces become hard to define and slip into the urban myths, fragments of remembered patterns and textures in the ever-changing city.

The exhibition is accompanied by an activity where children can craft their own mini-interior from recycled materials.

Open Day Redbank Plains Scout Group
