Event description

Description

Award winning Bunbury bush poet, author and landscape painter Peter O’Shaughnessy has combined all three of these interests in producing his latest book. ‘The Figures on the Lake.’

The book takes the viewer on a colourful pictorial history of the Gormley statues on Lake Ballard near Menzies in the WA outback, through the creation, slow decay and ultimate destruction of the statues. It contains an imaginative attempt to put faces to some of the figures and concludes with a short series of paintings exploring how the statues influence future directions of the artist’s work.

The Bunbury Library is proud to have local author/artist Peter O'Shaughnessy, presented by ABC's Gillo, showcasing his new book and paintings in this meet the author event.

Books will be available for purchase with all proceeds going to supporting Cancer Research in WA.
