Amanda van Gils – “Blink”

Current bid: $500.00

1 in stock

After the success of the Views from A Speeding Train series, I switched my focus to home and the road trips that have been a key thread running through my life since childhood. Blink was the first from these works and features a section of the notorious Bruce Highway.

This work was exhibited in Going Places at Anthea Polson Art (Gold Coast) and also in Still.Moving, a solo show with Bundaberg Regional Gallery (Qld). Presently in the collection of the artist, I am hoping this work can help raise funds to provide support for people with epilepsy.
