It's Spring in Australia

The exhibition held at Red Gallery was a fabulous one full of such diverse works on paper. I sold several pieces which was fabulous and I also purchased a 3D collage work called Sinker by Paul Compton. Paul was an art student when I was at RMIT and I have always loved the diversity in his art. Always a bit surreal which I love.

Having made a series of four large digital works to a theme is quite unusual for me as I usually work in a more instinctive way. I made these four limited edition digital images under the title Visible Invisible. Don’t you sometimes feel that you are invisible to other people?

I recently was commissioned to make something for a beautiful new renovated dining room and happened to show the client these works which were under wraps as I have not yet exhibited them. The client loved them and decided to take them all which was an enormous thrill for me.

If you are on instagram please look me up as I am making some fun stop motion animations that people are enjoying according to the comments I am getting. Execution is pretty ordinary, bad lighting, bad continuity, badly tilted camera. I love putting together strange sound/music to the stop motion pieces just to add a further surreal element. I have been told several times that they are very like the stop motion bits on Monty Python. I hope you will have a look and send me a comment.

Happy Spring.

Exhibition at Red Gallery is on Wednesday night.

I dropped my art work in to the group exhibition for works on paper to Red Gallery today. I have not exhibited very much lately and this exhibition really appealed to me so I was very happy to be asked to be in it by Gallery Director Kim. Kim has an enormous task ahead of her with the amount and the diverse work that I saw being dropped off. She was still smiling and happy, so far so good. I’m really looking forward to Wednesday night’s opening. I will have three framed works and four unframed works exhibited. I would love it if you came to see the exhibition.

I have never exhibited this 3d collage before. It sits in a dark oak, Japan finish box frame.

Exhibitions at Red Gallery and Lord Coconut

In July I will be exhibiting at Red Gallery in North Fitzroy with a group (unknown to me) exhibition called Paperlicious. Not sure yet how many pieces but around 6-8 I would think. The work will be surreal hybrids, dadaesque in style, on Arches or Fabriano 300gsm paper. Some works framed and others unframed. Will post the invitation when it is available.

A fun exhibition is also coming up at Lord Coconut where we all had to make a small artwork incorporating a vintage test tube. Will let you know when that is on as well.

My website now has a Shop for sales of some selected art works. Send me a message if you need any further information about any postings.

Please let me know if you would like to know anything about my art practice.

Hope if you are in Melbourne you are keeping warm.

I’ll be in touch.
