AN Oscar-winning illustrator, a former Warrnambool sculptor, and the south-west’s next wave of artists are all on display in new exhibitions recently opened at the WAG.
The acclaimed Shaun Tan, who won an Academy Award for his short adaptation of his own book The Lost Thing, has a new collection of works on display at the WAG titled Somewhere Nowhere.
The exhibition is described as a portal back to the imagination of childhood.
Tan’s award-winning collection of books includes The Red Tree, The Arrival, Tales From Outer Suburbia and Rules Of Summer.
Queensland-based artist Jenny Noyes has returned to her former stomping groung of Warrnambool with her exhibition Performance On An Egg, which features an array of egg-like sculptures that explore the fragility and destruction of our world.
Also on show is the annual South West TAFE year-end display, which features works by this year’s Peter Lucas Memorial Prize winner Connor Ovenden.
