A picture is worth a thousand words

11Aug10

So as it stands it is now 2 weeks before I go on my big European Tour!  So excited! I’m actually quite excited about the sights I plan on seeing and all of the endless pictures I plan on taking – who knows what I’ll find?

Today I came across beautiful, yet haunting, installation design by Justine Khamara of Melburne Australia.  I love how each photograph is meticulously designed to create the artwork.

About the Artist:

Group exhibitions include New 09, ACCA Melbourne (2009); Primavera 07, MCA Sydney (2007); Six Orbits Around the Blue Moon, Ramp Gallery Masey University, Hamilton, NZ (2005); Figures of Question, Ord Minnett Foyer Gallery Melbourne(2005); Hatched 03, Healthway National Graduate Show, Perth Institute of Contemporary Art (2003)

Between 2006-2007 Justine was a committee member at Westspace. Her writing has been published in Artlink Magazine as well as online journals including Melbourne’s Un Magazine and New Zealand based Naturalselection. In 2008 she was the recipient of an Australia Council new works grant for emerging artists.

I must admit though I’m in between absolutely amazed and a bit creeped out!
