THE SPIRIT OF THE ANZACS
..and the band played Waltzing Matilda…
Inspired by the legendary song “And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda’, by Eric Bogle, this body of work seeks to represent the memories of a soldier as he remembers his journey through the tragedy of Gallipoli. The fifteen charcoal drawings engage imagery inspired by historic film footage of real events surrounding the arrival at Anzac cove. Through a pictorial storyboard, these works capture glimpses of a WW1 n…arrative. The charcoal drawings seeks to represent the courageous coming together of war enemies and the soldiers determination through the adversity of war. Through retracing the memories of a WW1 war hero this work encourages contemplation on the life of the Australian Soldier, as he is portrayed at an Anzac parade many years later, reflecting on his own life, whilst the band played ‘Waltzing Matilda.’
Collaborative Wall Draw
Collaborative Wall Draw
Turbo Gallery would like to invite all members of the Rainbow community, regional artists from Victoria and visitors to the town, to participate in a collaborative drawing project. The result of this project will be a temporary installation drawing on the interior walls of the Gallery. This event will be documented and recorded throughout all stages of development through the use of photography and text. This collection of information will then be collated into a book and sold at the Gallery. This project will begin on March 20th and will end with a closing celebration on Friday April 15th at 4pm.
