The Virtual Gallery
“a cat of mine on ketamine”- Brian Gilmore
Each month the Kurilpa Poets feature the work
of various local ‘Unsuspected Artists’.
There are many lurking amongst us,
infesting our homes and streets and schools!
Corrupting our young people!
Lying around on Welfare sniffing paint-thinner!
So we splash these Artist’s Visions
in Beams of Gaudy Light across
the white-washed walls of the Olde
Croquet Club, as a cautionary example
for young people.
This month we’ll be showing more
oddities and classics from the collection of our eccentric
Visual Arts Director, Shane Kneipp.
And as well as the usual historical stuff,
from the Land of the Living,
our feature Unsuspected Artist forOctober is;
Lurking in his shambling Fortress of Solitude by the waters of Moreton Bay, few passers-by suspect that within these crumbling walls, a Mad Visionary has been relentlessly exploring the Edges of Reality for many years.
Brian’s meticulously detailed Imaginary Vistas
chart his heroic journeys through the Archtypal Planes
and the bizarre Inhabitants encountered there.
Brian is rumoured to be the mysterious ‘Dr Bob’,
companion to the Reverend Hellfire on the occasion
of their abduction by Aliens.
If these rumours are true, it would certainly explain
the Other-Worldly aspects and Multi-Dimensional
themes that abound in this artist’s work.
Or perhaps some weird bio-hallucinogen
lurks in his genetic structure, a familial trait
as it were, for Brians elder sibling himself was a former Pineapple from the Dawn of Time, no strangers they to Psychedelia.
Yes, truly the Psychedelic Impulse
flows strong through the Gilmore veins.
So come tripping with Brian at the Virtual Gallery!
