Today I went to the Tim Burton exhibition at Federation Square here in Melbourne, and, It was amazing!
You may not know his name but you will know his movies, Edward Scissor Hands, The Corpse Bride, Beetle Juice and the new version of Alice In Wonderland to name but a few.
The exhibition featured illustrations and models from throughout his career to date, and included some costumes worn in the new Alice in Wonderland movie (Alices red and blue dresses, The Mad Hatters costume, The Red Queens booties and The Chesire Cat's hat), The detail in which was amazing to see up close.
One thing that was a point of Interest for me was the his use of colour. I had mostly associated Tim Burton with dark and ominous but while the subjects were dark the colours were definetly not! Which is what makes them great in my view.
If you are in Melbourne it is definetly worth a look. Sadly I could not take pictures in the expo but here's a few I have put together for your enjoyment.
