Sculpture In the Garden was recently held at a private Brisbane residence with FireWorks Gallery artists, friends and other private guests.

Lightning Man, Lightning Visit!

Senior Warlpiri artist Michael Nelson Jagamara will make a lightning visit to Brisbane to promote and celebrate the successful 2015 launching of Lightning Strikes sculpture series. Michael Nelson Jagamara, (MNJ), was born in 1946 at Vaughan Springs, in Central Australia. In 2014, MNJ completed an angular ‘lightning’ sculpture design derived from his age old Rain + Water Dreaming story. Its distinctive hard edged base represents a section of a ‘travelling storm’ whilst the three jagged upright forms represent ‘flashes of lightning’.
