I would like to introduce my fellow artists exhibiting in Nice Day! at Logan Art Gallery. Susan Buret, Jen Conde, Uta Heidelauf, Candice Herne and Sandra Landolt have each created works in response to their interactions and thoughts on weather. The resulting exhibition presents a diverse range of creative explorations on how we think, observe and live with weather in it's many forms.
During the three year project leading up to this exhibition; the use of weather in conversation as a universally safe subject became apparent. Conscious observation was recorded against the subconscious periphery awareness of weather in our daily lives and activities. As the opening of Nice Day! approaches, I would doubt there is a person in Queensland, and possibly Australia, who hasn't consciously thought about weather this week and it's consequences.
Here's hoping for some nice days soon!
