This selection of ‘house portraits’ examines the city’s significant domestic architectural heritage as seen through the eyes of contemporary Queensland artists.

These house portraits are more than mere pictorial representations of the city’s heritage-listed buildings, instead offering explorations into the architectural design, construction and fabrication methods while also exposing more than a hint of the personal histories and memories of their former residents.
