Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney

We don’t go to art galleries and museums very often. Mainly when we travel and they are free! The Art Gallery of NSW was a real find for a rainy day – free art AND free wifi.

Here are some of our favourite exhibits  or installations (what does that mean, anyway?) or pieces, or works of art, or whatever.

One of those guys is my husband – he’s a real piece of work at times, too.*

* I have just learned from Wikipedia that the phrase “piece of work” comes from Hamlet:

What a piece of work is a man!

How noble in Reason! how infinite in faculties!

in form and moving how express and admirable!

In action how like an Angel!

in apprehension how like a god!

the beauty of the world! the paragon of animals!

I don’t know if Shakespeare intended it so, but it is usually used with a touch of sarcasm.
