Courtney Coombs In Pursuit of MagicOpening: Wednesday 30 April, 6-8pm Dates: 30 April – 17 May 2014
‘In Pursuit of Magic’ is the next instalment in Courtney’s exploration of her position as an artist in the ‘history’ of art in association with notions of infatuation, love and relationships, both real and imagined.

She is a founding Co-Director for artist run initiative, LEVEL and has exhibited extensively throughout Brisbane in both group and solo shows, as well as nationally, including the Next Wave Festival (2012) with LEVEL, Artspace’s exhibition ‘Eastern Seaboard’ (2011) with No Frills* and internationally including her solo exhibition ‘Wish you were here’ (2012) at Roji to Hito, Tokyo. Coombs’ work is held in public and private collections.
