Artist’s Choice: Marian Drew | Buoyancy

salon wall

1 July – 16 October 2011 | Xstrata Coal Queensland Artists' Gallery (Gallery 14), Queensland Art Gallery (QAG)

For this, the second in the Gallery's regular series of Artist's Choice exhibitions, respected Queensland photographer Marian Drew has curated a display from the Gallery's Collection relating to that most precious resource, water.

In 'Buoyancy', Marian Drew explores the mythical and psychological associations we have with water, and in the process, seeks to engage with 'notions of transcendence, suspension and submergence'.

An exhibition brochure is available from the Gallery Store and online
