Meet You at Stones

Old Cleveland Rd & Montague St & Laura St, Greenslopes QLD
Originally Burnett’s Swamp, the suburb was then named Stones Corner in 1875, then in 1975 was amalgamated into the suburb of Greenslopes. Only recently, Stones Corner was reinstated as its own suburb in 2017. The curved brush strokes in vivid colours are symbolic of a city constantly in flux – moving and flowing like the nearby Norman Creek. The bright colours are chosen to represent the Queer lens that I view my world and the contrasting individuals in this community. The scene depicts the main thoroughfare of Logan Road and the new Stones Corner sign street art inspired by 1950s American roadside motel architecture. The scene framed by Brisbane iconic Jacaranda trees indicates that it is a sunny spring day in the hustle and bustle of Stones Corner. It is my hope that this artwork inspires young locals to research the history of this great suburb and reach out to their friends to “Meet You at Stones”.
