Commissioned mural at HOTA

“From 11 -22 Feb local artist Courtenay McCue will be here creating on a vibrant new mural for us as part of the Duchamp Wall Commission.

Her artwork, The Queen of the Cross, is inspired by Carlotta; a Gold Coast icon, fearless cabaret dancer and LGBTQ activist.

Executed in Courtenay’s signature style of layered street art treatments, including stencils, pastes ups, and hand-written messages, this mural is her biggest work to date, and her first-time using wall vinyl.

The Queen of the Cross is a tribute to a woman who has inspired countless people through the decades of her ground-breaking career, dedicated to further inspire strength and collectivity in the community.

Courtenay situates vintage or historic imagery in a contemporary reference, here cleverly transforming a doorway into a dressing room, under the guise of a magazine cover. The composition emulates an issue of Life magazine while offering a chronicle of Carlotta’s life. Rife with symbols and references, including Courtenay’s trademark CRT, it celebrates Carlotta.”
