Charles Eames at Artisan
Last night I went to the opening of “The gifted eye of Charles Eames”, a selection of 100 photographs taken by the American designer. His rather charming grandson, Eames Demetrios, gave a fantastic talk about life growing up in the Eames household and some really nice insights into the life and times of both Charles and his wife Ray. Their furniture is to die for, their films quirky, and some of the photographs were breathtaking. Three in particular really took my breath away (predicatably they were all of plates piled in the sink, breakfast settings and cups sitting on tables!) and had me standing mute, dazed and drooling in front of them, a most attractive look I’m sure. Oh but the lighting!! Stunning. So if you are in Brisvegas – GO!!! It’s on at Artisan (craft QLD), but only for two weeks until November 18th so hurry!
