Caravan collage

Drawing of caravan

Artists often exaggerate size, shape and colour to create emotion or to make a statement in their artwork.

In the work, Humpybong Holiday, artist Amanda Penrose-Hart has exaggerated the size of the wheelie bin. What do you think she is trying to say?

Amanda is an Australian artist who is inspired by travel. Her projects take her to a variety of destinations including Gallipoli, the Western front, New Zealand, France and the four corners of the Australian outback.

The Moreton Bay Region is home to many holiday spots. In her painting Humpybong Holiday, Amanda is inspired by some of these places.
