Simply because I should now be studying for my exams, I’m going to post pictures of some tile art at my University… I’m such a procrastinator!!! I have been accused of this since I was a kid and hated it back then, but alas it is true 😉 I am, however, proud to say it stems more from working well under pressure: I always get the job done by the deadline!!!
Anyway (!), the Australian National University here in Canberra houses a public art commission located in the Union Court. Commissioned in 1999, it was finished in 2001. The artist is Deborah Halpern.
It is basically abstract tile art – all the tiles having been hand painted by Halpern herself onto what appears to be ordinary ceramic tiles. Certainly adds a bit of colour to Union Court. Apparently Halpern is inspired by Picasso in some of her works and this seems evident to me here too.
