fiona hall

Last Sunday we all headed in to the MCA, Museum of Contemporary Art here in Sydney, on the harbour at Circular Quay, right next to the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House.
It was the last day of a Fiona Hall retrospective 'Force Field'. This contemporary Australian artist makes the most detailed and amazing work. One of my favourite series is Paradisus Terrestrus, the sardine tin above. The skull above that is fashioned from beaded wire and the series below are leaves intricately painted on to different banknotes.
