Metamorphosis

Thursday 1 April - Saturday 1 May

Artwork: Elizabeth Poole, Spiritii and Pods, from Metamorphosis Sunshine Coast artist Elizabeth Poole explores the theme of metamorphosis and new life bursting from old, in this exhibition that draws its inspiration from the local landscape.

Poole's sculptural works and are constructed from materials collected from the fragile wallum environment in which she lives. She creates an imaginative world filled with animated organic forms. Poole's inherently uplifting work suggests transformation from darkness into light and conveys ideas of endings, new beginnings, and the passing and effects of time.
