Colour II: Merv Moriarty Video
Part of the Flying Arts Colour and Response touring and exhibition project held throughout Queensland Colour II: Merv Moriarty, in the Field presents recent works by Merv Moriarty. Affectionately known as the ‘Flying Artist’, Merv Moriarty has remained committed to teaching and creating art for more than five decades. In the early 1970’s, Bundaberg was one of the first venues for his fly in, fly out workshops, opening the way for other highly regarded tutors to visit. In turn this invigorated the practice and careers of local artists and saw the birth of the Allamanda Gallery, a cultural hub with a significant impact on local artists. Five of those artists exhibit alongside Merv in the response exhibition: Out of the Allamanda.
