Details


I've been putting finishing touches on the artworks for my upcoming exhibition - Culture Ecology. With a week left to go till installation, it's a good feeling to be getting to the final details. I am excitedly looking forward to seeing the works on show unframed in the new project space at SGAR: Spiro Grace Art Rooms.

Culture Ecology presents new works developed from my artist in residence experiences at Hill End. Historical and contemporary influences of making home and the shaping of Hill End's ecology are explored in a silhouette series and large wall installation.

Invitations and more details coming soon....in the mean time I'm contemplating what to make with all the off-cuts.

In the studio


It's been all action in the studio for the past couple of months with completion of works for my upcoming solo show - Culture Ecology at SGAR: Spiro Grace Art Rooms.
The exhibition will feature new work and ideas developed from my residency at Haefliger's Cottage, Hill End last year. I'm excited to see how the installation of works will look in the stunning new project space at SGAR..... In the meantime it's back to the cutting board!

Tomorrow night I am heading along to the official opening of Collection and Place - A Decade On at Redland Art Gallery. The commemorative exhibition marks the tenth anniversary of Redland Art Gallery. The exhibition is presented simultaneously in both the Cleveland and Capalaba galleries and features the work of ten artists held in the Redland Art Gallery Collection. Selected by guest curator Ross Searle, the exhibition reveals how artists respond to the environment and sense of place locally or further afield. Artists include Leigh Camilleri, Belinda Close, Lawrence Daws, Fiona Foley, Noel McKenna, Luke Roberts, Julie Shepherd, Carl Warner, Judy Watson and myself.

I am looking forward to seeing the show and each artists work. Collection and Place continues to the 26th March 2013.

There is a floor talk at 12 noon by guest curator Ross Searle on Tuesday 19th February if you can get along to the Cleveland area.
