We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon tea of macarons, lamingtons, champagne and sparkling water. B asked me to mention on my blog that they were the best lamingtons he'd ever tasted. And we then enjoyed main part of the day - the Mirka Mora exhibit at Heide I. What a fascinating woman, who along with her husband and friends bought a bit of Parisian bohemia and the arts to Melbourne when she migrated in 1950's after surviving the holocaust.
"Mirka’s art is characterised by a sensuous, colourful naïve style and an idiosyncratic iconography of recurring motifs, including angels, children, cats, dogs, birds and snakes. As well as painting and drawing she has worked in mosaic, soft sculpture and doll-making. Many of the artworks in this exhibition were once in the collection of Heide founders John and Sunday Reed and are inscribed with delightful personal messages, tracing the development of an enduring friendship."
Mirka's art will be exhibited at the Heide until May 1, so check it out over the Easter break if you have a couple of spare hours. And don't skip lunch at Cafe Vue. Yum!
Thank you Aesop for inviting me.
