Kubi Vasak is an Sydney based artist. The title ‘Dust before the Sun’ is taken from the Rupert Brooke poem ‘Dust’ written in 1911. The poem’s main theme is the transience of life. Vasak’s work sits in-between reality and the dream world. “Along with capturing the evanescence of light in the composition, I wanted to reflect the otherworldliness in the golden twilight hour just before the sun sets. The green vase and the personal objects ask the question of belonging, while the shimmering gold, soft pink and yellow flowers illuminate the scene.
