Insight Gallery

Insight Gallery 

Insight is proud to be an active member of the community.  We regularly contribute to local community, cultural and sporting groups.  

We have taken our involvement to the next level with the opening of INSIGHT GALLERY at 416 Ruthven Street, Toowoomba. 

The Insight Gallery is a joint initiative with resident artist, Steven Dix. Steven's art is a direct representation of who he is, what he sees, thinks and feels about the world that surrounds him. Generally, he's not concerned about fine details, or exact reproductions of life, but instead a transfer of the weathered, aged, stressed, and tortured elements that represent the imperfect world in which he lives. His passion is for visual contrasts and surprising combinations of colour and texture. Each work he creates is a reflection of our world through his eyes and his life ... his history.

Local Artists 

In addition to the Insight Gallery, we are continuing to directly support other local artists by  providing the walls of our offices for them to display and potentially sell some of their art.  All of these proceeds go back to the artist.

Our first artist is Carol McCormack from Glenmorgan.  Carol is well known in the bush-art scene for her ability to capture the essence of inland Australia.  All the proceeds from the sale of Carol's works on display at Insight will go to the establishment of the Toowoomba Accommodation Lodge.  The Lodge will provide a home away from home for regional cancer patients, at no cost, while receiving treatment in Toowoomba.  More information on the lodge is available here.

Another talented exhibitor is Scott Bridle, an exceptional Australian outback photographer and helicopter pilot.  Scott’s landscapes capture the raw beauty of outback Australia from vantage points seen by few, and his portraits breathe empathy for his subjects who seem to be wrought from the tough country in which they live and work.  Penguin have just released "Outback by Scott Bridle" showcasing a book of Scotts incredible photography.

Scott has recently released his stunning book "Outback".  This is a must-have item for your coffee table!

Scott Bridle by

Scott Bridle

Scott Bridle’s early years were spent at Erambie, his family’s grazing property in the Glenmorgan District of south-west Queensland. This is where he first became absorbed with and developed a passion for the land.

From an early age he was surrounded by art and artists: his mother, an accomplished landscape painter, hosted many workshops with visiting artists from the Flying Arts School, and introduced art-making to her children as a natural part of life. Scott developed a love of nature and an affinity with the land early in his life.  His first photographs were taken at the age of 10 using a Kodak Instamatic. Photography was then, and still is, his way of expressing his feelings about the bush and property life.

Scott has worked as a stockman since 1990 on vast landholdings in the Queensland and Northern Territory outback: in the Channel Country of far south-western Queensland and in the Gulf and on the Barkly Tableland in the Northern Territory. He became a helicopter pilot in 2002 and, since then, has mustered cattle over some of the most isolated country and roughest terrain in Australia.  He has experienced the harshness and toughness of life on the land while appreciating and celebrating its incredible beauty. It is mostly in this atmosphere that Scott has found the subject matter for his images. In 2010 he won the BHP Billiton Waltzing Matilda Photographic Prize, for an aerial view of Cinder Dam, “Lake Nash” N.T.

Scott’s landscapes capture the raw beauty of outback Australia from vantage points seen by few, and his portraits breathe empathy for his subjects who seem to be wrought from the tough country in which they live and work.
