‘Up On the Roof’ by Bridget Kelly
SPACE: ROOFTOP GARDEN
WHEN: 24/7 – 30 Nov 2030
WHO: Bridget Kelly
Up on the Roof was inspired by the 107 rooftop garden and commenced over the summer of 2019 when much of the east coast of Australia was on fire. Bridget Kelly’s posca on wood artworks reflect her take on the world with her unique combination of colour and shapes within shapes.
The concept of shapes within shapes extended Bridget creative vision and applying Posca to the medium of wood has broadened her art practice and skills base. The site specific and visceral element of working in the garden enhanced her observational experience.
Artworks: Orion, Light Beams, View From Above, On Fire, Pollination, In Bloom, City Lights, Moon Bloom.
