Red Iguana most popular work in Art Expo

A coloured pencil depiction of a red iguana has captured the hearts of Art Expo viewers.

The drawing by Ocean Shores artist Kurt Bullock attracted the most votes in the Viewer’s Choice category.

Kurt said he had long had a fascination with reptiles.

“As I have recently started to draw using colour pencils, I have tried to blend both these passions to capture the amazing colours and characteristics of the red iguana,” he said.

The second most popular artwork was “Eden Roc Pavillion | Hotel du Cap, Antibes 1976” by Casuarina artist Susie Paul.

The acrylic painting on canvas sprang from Susie’s fond memories of travel.

Third most popular was Tom Pall’s sculpture entitled “Reverberate”.

“Using a merger of new and reclaimed materials, I combine modern fabrication processes with traditional blacksmithing techniques to re-imagine familiar objects in unfamiliar ways,” said Tom, who lives at Goondiwindi.

Each winner received a $100 prize.
