One day I hope to fill all of the walls in my home - top to bottom - with artwork, predominately Australian art. Our collection is coming along nicely with the living room almost completely full of our favourite pieces and we are keeping an eye out for more.
So it was nice to come across the work of Gold Coast artist Anna Carey who was recently featured on The Design Files. Anna's work are photographic images of the tiny architectural paper models that she makes. The models are pieced together based on her recollection of buildings that are familiar to the Gold Coast landscape.
The mid-century buildings really capture the spirit of the city and I was drawn to her work for the personal memories that the work represented to me of my time holidaying in the Gold Coast. I'm not one for the new shiny buildings that tower over the city. It is these old dilapidated 50's and 60's buildings that I adore most.
