“THE FANTASY ISLAND SERIES …. and other comic relief”

March 16th, 2006


APRIL 1ST TO MAY 31, 2006

Fantas Island Pinting Jim Olssen
Baguette Gallery shares the space with the restaurant, so you can enjoy some top art as well as good food.
Jim Olsson: “One of the great and enduring fantasies of late twentieth century European thought, is the idea of the noble savage living on a remote island. It seems everybody wants to escape to Utopia on the good ship ‘Lollipop’ with Britney (or Brad) for company.”
Brisbane artist Jim Olsson taps into this need with his stunning new series of paintings, inspired by the Whitsunday Islands .. but it could easily be Moreton or the South Pacific. The ultimate SeaChange.

    Say “Hi” to Jim – glad he’s still producing and as irreverent as ever.
    Tell him I’m the proud owner of 2 of his best works in my opinion. Loving our Sea Change on Bribie Island (on a canal), but have our real estate business in Caboolture. Regards to Francis

    Hi Marilyn,
    Bill and Cathrine visit our Tapas Cafe in Kenmore and suggested I have a Blog, they thought yours was great so thought I’d take a look. They were right it is great, can’t wait to come and try your Brulee.

    Thanks, Lyndal
