Your Number’s Up by Gail Cowley
Through her distinctive art, Brisbane-based artist Gail Cowley deals with the personal and social effects on people's lives from time spent in institutions such as orphanages, psychiatric facilities and prisons.
Painted on old institutional enamelware cups, plates and bowls, her images are all portraits of people she has met during the course of her work.
A Museum of Brisbane & Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum artist exchange project in recognition of the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race.
