These two large artworks celebrate the principal sports played at one of Australia’s best know stadiums, the Brisbane Cricket Ground; or “The 'Gabba” as it is affectionately called by locals.

The Australian Rules Football (Aussie Rules) artwork references the sixteen teams that play in the national competition, including the Brisbane Lions who play their home games at The 'Gabba.
The history of the Lions is reflected through the inclusion of their formative teams (Bears and Fitzroy) and the years in which they won the Premiership. Additional dates can be added!!

The cricket artwork shows the colours and names of the state and international teams that play at the stadium. The ‘Gabba is home to the Queensland Bulls and the Australian team regularly plays there. The years on which Australia won the Cricket World Cup and Queensland the domestic competition are also included.

The colours of each team are accurately represented and the colour pattern is designed to express the excitement and energy of the game and to provide a focus for both local and visiting fans. The work also seeks to compliment the scale and form of the stadium architecture.
