Vivid

I have an exhibition of paintings inspired by 'Vivid' now on display at the Four Seasons Hotel, 199 George Street, The Rocks, Sydney.
This hotel is almost 'Vivid Headquarters'. It is only 100 metres from the best vantage points to view the spectacular lighting the sails of the Opera House, and the facade of the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Brett Whiteley often painted the magnificent view from Lavender Bay.  It looks even better at night, however I don't think that many other artists have painted nocturnes of Sydney Harbour.

Of all the images projected onto the sails of the Opera House, my favourite would be Luna Park. It revives memories of the cheeky imagery by Martin Sharp, Peter Kingston and other larrikin ratbag artists who revered and helped defend Luna Park.

The angle of the lighting on the painting has cast a faint rainbow as a halo above the span of the Bridge.
