'Alice Springs to Weipa' by Donna Marcus
Redland Art Gallery Collection. Donated through the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program by Donna Marcus, 2017.
Marcus is a Brisbane based artist who is known for her sculptures, made from aluminium kitchenware from second-hand shops. Constructed from discarded kitchen utensils her sculptures draw viewers into a world of kitchens both remembered and imagined.
Marcus is engaged by the stories evoked by these objects, and by the familiarity they engender in many viewers. Their original uses in post-war kitchens are recalled and extended by the process of assemblage, as they are combined into the repetitive forms of modernist grids and spheres.
Marcus likes the way recycled materials bring memories of their past uses to a new context. This large scale installation represents a journey Marcus made with her family when she was ten years old.

Redland Performing Arts Centre is proud to provide a Community Arts Display Space (art wall) to celebrate arts within the Redlands Community.
The Community Arts Display Space at RPAC was the first of its kind for the Redlands and celebrates arts within the community by offering a free, self facilitated display space for local artists, schools and community groups to exhibit artwork of their choice.
The art wall is located on the second level of the RPAC Concert Hall foyer and is available for groups to display artworks for blocks of one month.
