Graham Bligh, former BVN Donovan Hill director, has collaborated with two other artists to create ‘The Power of Three’, an exhibition that attempts to challenge the concepts of dimensionality.
Together with Wim de Vos and Adele Outteridge, Bligh has created mixed media artworks that explore dimensionality through three dimensional paintings, drawings with light and sculptures.
His contribution refers to his discovery of bricolage in his exploration of printmaking.
“Everywhere around me are vignettes of shape, colour, texture, space and movement,” says Bligh about what influences his art.
Bligh is well known within the architecture industry and his successes include his constructed designs of the World Exposition 1988 site, Colonial Stadium in Melbourne, The Australia Stadium in Melbourne, the Hyatt Regency Coolum, the Queensland Supreme Courts complex, and the Queensland Conservatorium of Music.
Since his retirement in 2000, Bligh has turned his focus to his artwork, which culminated in a solo exhibition of his artwork at the UQ Art Museum in October 2008.
The PARC Pavilion will host the exhibition and will house Bligh’s exploration of ‘bricolage’.
The exhibits are open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm. The exhibition runs from 5-16 May at BVN Donovan Hill’s Studio, 109 Alfred Street, Fortitude Valley.
