IN CONVERSATION

Our visitors respond to this 30-second video.

  • I have seen this show now 5 times. I have brought friends because I find it so fascinated by it. Yes it is Universal, Klimt, it's wonderful that each time I come I find it different. Today it is abstract and monumental.

    — Jennifer Napoli

    I love the way all his artwork tie together but they are unique compared to other people's work

  • I respond to the ever changing landscape they present. Reminding us that the land and culture we live in is anything but static.

    — Leigh

  • I see connection to family community and also the ancestral and future connection to the planet and it's preservation.

    — Cheryl

  • Hanging & can pieces evoke: Fabric, curtains, quilts. Fluidity of fabric, feeling of motion.

    — Valerie

  • One of the connections I made is to quilting. The way the metal is folded reminds me of some style of fabric joining. I also think of Australian indigenous sand and dot paintings made in the desert.
