Noosa Regional Gallery, Tewantin
Sat 24 June to Sun 30 July
Van T Rudd is an artist, school maintenance worker and unionist based in Melbourne. Working across various mediums, and often in the public domain, Rudd takes his inspiration from ordinary peoples' struggles against capitalism's destructive forces.
Unsettlingly out of place, well removed from the road, a bus stop stands to the side of the entryway into Noosa Regional Gallery. Its purpose isn’t a waiting place for public transport, though, but instead shelters the confronting composition of a family of five, huddling beneath blankets with nowhere else to call home.
