Art projection: Phoebe Paradise's, 'Subtropical Surreal'
Brisbane City Council has an extensive public art collection of approximately 500 diverse objects by local, national and internationally renowned artists. This diverse collection comprises artworks in a mix of styles and materials ranging from traditional bronze sculptures to large scale contemporary artworks with lighting programs.
For the first time Council has commissioned digital artworks for the city’s growing public art collection by four leading and emerging local, female artists which was launched in 2020 at Council’s newest Outdoor Gallery location, Howard Smith Wharves.
The portability of this part of the wider Public Art Collection allows for the artworks to be displayed multiple times across varying locations. This innovative art procurement takes the artwork to the people rather than the other way around.
Four artworks will be on rotation at Howard Smith Wharves from 22 November to 3 December.

About the artwork
Subtropical Surreal is a dreamy, animated miscellany of domestic tableaux; magnifying the private, surreal moments of living with a city that is constantly renegotiating its spatial relationship with the natural subtropical environment.
