Artwork by Sean Rafferty

Sean Rafferty's Study for Diorama will be projected on the William Jolly Bridge from 5.30-10pm, 18-22 October 2017.

In recent years, Sean Rafferty has adopted the role of collector, reimagining the humble produce carton to creatively transform it from a practical item into whimsical and colourful installation artworks. Museum of Brisbane commissioned Rafferty to create two new works for their current exhibition, Taste’s like Sunshine. The exhibition explores the flavoursome side of our city’s character and reveals its rich and evolving food story. The exhibition is open until 12 November 2017. Image: David Kelly.
