It’s coming up to August, and the SALA (South Australian Living Artists) festival in Adelaide. Generally a very busy time for Artists here in South Australia!
I have teamed up with local business “Jorell’s Hair Face and Body”, Shop 44 City Cross Arcade, Rundle Mall to present my SALA exhibition “AWESOME!”
I was also lucky to be selected as a finalist for the Advertiser Business SA Contemporary Art Prize in SALA, so one of my iPad drawings on aluminium is in the finalist’s exhibition in the foyer of the Advertiser Building on Waymouth Street.
“AWESOME!” is a tongue-in-cheek meditation on the role of “Beauty ” and “Awe” in our times. I have used 21st technical means (digital iPad drawings) to rediscover traditional Art practice (Plein Air and observational figure drawing) in an effort to find beauty and awe in my everyday surroundings. Awesome?
AWESOME! runs from Saturday 3rd August until Saturday 7th September at Jorell’s. Jorell’s is open Monday – Friday in business hours, and Saturday mornings.There is a “Drinks with the Artist” function on Tuesday 20th August, 4:30pm – 6:30pm.
