Beginning 2018 the way I mean to go on (not the being in Brisbane part, but you know)...
2017's resolution was to start this blog, so hooray for me actually resolving one of these blasted things for once (the other one - attaining abs whilst not changing my diet - has been slightly more elusive)! Admittedly, I've been a touch slack with writing the last couple of months, but hey, life happens.
2018 is shaping up to be an exciting year, particularly travel wise (oh, and there's also the whole turning 30 thing). I can't wait to visit some places I've never been to before. Puglia, the Amalfi Coast, Lake Bled, and Crete are some of the places on my list, so please hit me up with any recommendations!
So, Brisbane… now Brisbane itself doesn't have many draw cards (with the exception of one of my besties) but the creative scene in the last few years has really picked up. Li Cunxin (AKA Mao's Last Dancer) was appointed Artistic Director of the Queensland Ballet in 2012; and the Queensland Art Gallery/GOMA have hosted some wonderful exhibitions, the latest of which is an exhibition showcasing some of Yayoi Kusama’s impressive body of work.
I love a reflection, so Kusama's infinity installations are always a highlight, but what I find most astonishing about Yayoi Kusama is how at 88 her creative output is still as high as ever.
Life is the Heart of a Rainbow is on at GOMA in Brisbane until February 11. L x
PS. Kusama loves colour... I just happened to photograph all of the black and white pieces... Haha.
