Highlights for me were Aurelia a stunning geometric chandelier which hung from the tall ceilings of The Block Gallery (QUT Kelvin Grove). Secondly, Brett Archibald Bevege's The Wanderer, an encapsulating women's wear collection captured my eye the moment I walked into the exhibition. Beautifully photographed and displayed, this piece caught the eye of many visitors to the exhibition. Bevege's work is completely on par with what I personally find artistically appealing, and it turns out I am not alone with this thought. After graduating, Bevege landed a job with Karen Walker in Auckland so I think we can continue to expect to see some very special work produced in the future. Further images of his designs are available here. Lastly, A Kaleidoscopic Perspective by the talented Shenaz Engineer blew my mind. Seven mannequins clad in the intricate designs based around themes of Structural Geometric Formations, Distortions and Illusions and Change were the centrepiece of the exhibition. Engineer experimented with laser cutting, digital engineered print design and the development of new textiles which when combined, resulted in a collection which was originally captivating and inspiring to say the least.
Enjoy the images :)
