A fable in brief is simply an extended description of what the use of metaphor sets out to achieve...a process of substitution...'this stands for that'... In the context of a disparate collection of etchings, artists' books and photographic transfers a new exhibition 'Fable in Brief' extends the 'mytho-poetic' interests that evolved from my post-graduate studies...recognising the potential for self-narrative to relate meaningful associations as a method of better comprehending our everyday experiences of the world. I'm pretty certain that my 'mytho-poetic' experiences will not deliver any new understandings of the everyday for anyone else, but it may provide a certain metaphoric thought-space for a few moments at least.
'Fable in Brief' will be open to the public this Wednesday 17th August at the Project Gallery. Queensland College of Art, Grey Street South Bank, Brisbane.
Gallery hours: Tues-Sat. 10am-4pm.
