We went to visit the indigenous artists section of the National Gallery in Canberra
These are a few of my favourite paintings.
This dress is a collaboration between a textile designer, photographer and dressmaker. It's modelled on Maria's wedding dress from the Sound of Music and has images of shotguns all over it. Hence the title "Shotgun Wedding". Clever.
And one of two Hockneys in the gallery - I haven't managed to catch a great picture of it but it was pretty amazing to see. When we look at something our attention moves around to different parts of the whole - our eyes are constantly moving. In this enormous canvas of the Grand Canyon, Hockney has tried to explore this trait by helping our eye to travel across the image in a random manner.
Inside, Tom looking up at the tiny opening to see the sky - I caught this double image in his sunglasses.
And the water flowing over the edge of the platform gave another reflection.
