Postcard from Birriwa
This is the best work of art I have seen for some time. Not that it was intended to be a work of art by it's creator. I am not sure what their motivation was and I wasn't prepared to stop and ask lest I became one of the exhibits as we drove through the tiny 6 house settlement of Birriwa in the New South Wales central west district. It's unusual to say the least but on closer inspection the tableaux has a distinctly menacing feel to it, and so I appropriate it as a surrealist work. Photo taken by Joy Georgeson.
