A Vaudeville Act in Yellow

Some old Queenslander-style houses in Brisbane are pretty amazing showcases of self expression.

I like this one for its audacious splash of canary yellow colour. Punctuated with a bit of turquoise and the odd spot of rusty metal hues it is bordered by a dark lime green band. Perhaps it is a satire on traditionalist colour schemata? The traditional vase of faux plastic roses are a nice nostalgic touch, a nod to the past.

All the corrugated iron sheets and timbers get the same treatment here; no favouritism in the setting of this stage!

However a peek through the corrugated curtain leads one’s eye behind the scenes to spot the odd errant outlier in the colour regime.

 An exercise in mixed media cleverly using a juxtaposition of cubic and linear  elements delivers a punch-line where horizontality meets verticality & rectilinear timber meets curvilinear iron!
