See all 2019 brains in the pond at Nathan Phillips Square in July!
This sculpture depicts a painted colour illusion which makes a flat object look dimensional. The design is similar to the artist’s Refraction series of paintings, which play with light and shadow, perspective, shape and line. The flat brain shape lends itself well to refraction with its tapered areas. Colours begin along the edge, broaden in the centre and fade out much like some thought processes, dreams and memories.
