iPad drawing workshop at Adelaide Central School of Art

Are you interested in using your iPad to draw? I will be running a two day workshop at the well respected Adelaide Central School of Art on Thursday 11th and Friday 12th of January 2018. Enrol here.

The first day will be spent going through the basics of the Brushes XP app (these skills are transferable to just about any other drawing app) and the second day will be for developing your own projects – or you can work on ideas that I will give you.

I’d love to see you there – it will be fun and relaxed, and you will learn a new drawing tool!

The workshop is suitable for people who have no prior iPad drawing experience.

9th Prospect Portrait Prize

I am pleased to have been included in the 9th Prospect Portrait Prize exhibition, with my animated digital painting “DNA”. This work was previously a finalist in the Emma Hack Art Prize, and it is wonderful to have it out in the world again.

The 9th Prospect Portrait Prize opens this Sunday 26th November at Prospect Gallery, 1 Thomas Street Nailsworth. The opening function is from 3-5pm.

The exhibition continues until January 21st, 2018.

November/December exhibition: SA Love Art Bar, 52 Sturt Street, Adelaide.

The dynamic Ms Emma Hack has been busy forming SA Art Collective and setting up a new Gallery space, shop and bar at 52 Sturt Street, Adelaide City.

Along with a number of other local Artists, I have work in the first exhibition at this lively new space. The exhibition theme is “SA Love”.

There is also a gift shop – and Christmas is coming!

So get along this week or soon, have a glass of local wine and a nibble or two and check it out!

Opening times are 12-6, Thursday -Sunday at this stage (it is still young!)

Emma Hack Art Prize 2017

I’m thrilled to have been selected as a finalist once again in the Emma Hack Art Prize. 

The theme is “Real or surreal”. 

I dropped my work off this morning and glimpsed some of the fabulous work there – it is certainly worth a visit!
The exhibition is on at Burnside Village until 13th March.

An Impromptu exhibition

It is the Adelaide Fringe, and I’ve suddenly found myself involved in a “Fringe” exhibition at the new and lovely Studio Bowden.

The planned exhibition fell through, and I was asked to fill the gap! The exhibition begins on February 26th and runs through until March 6th.

I’m showing landscape based works – swing by for a look!

 

Studio Bowden is at 91A Drayton street Bowden.

Exhibition hours are:

Feb 2016 26, 27 and 28

March 2, 3,5 and 6,

Daily 11 am – 5pm

Adelaide Fringe Festival and the Emma Hack Art Prize exhibition.

My Video Drawing work entitled “DNA” has been selected for the Emma Hack Art Prize Exhibition at the Adelaide Fringe.

Emma Hack’s Exhibition celebrates the work of South Australian Artists, and this year the theme is “Identity”.

The exhibition is in the Festival Theatre Foyer, and officially opens Thursday 11th February at 6pm.

It can be viewed any day from 9 until 5 and when events are on at the theatre, and runs until March 13th.

A winner will be selected by a panel of judges , and there is also a people’s choice award – voting  can be done on line here and works can be purchased online here. A list of finalists can be found here

In my video work, the viewer can “participate” in the drawing transformation of one family member to the next. The unique qualities of digital drawing enable the drawing process to be replayed and preserved.

Our DNA determines in part our unique and at the same time composite identity. This animated series of portrait drawings explores that fascination we have with family likeness.

To see the movie, visit the exhibition at the Adelaide Festival Theatre, Feb 11th until March 13th!

Mural in North Adelaide

“Living the Life – in North Adelaide” – Mural design with imposed palette (iPad finger drawings collaged)

I’ve been lucky enough to be one of five artists to have my mural design selected to be part of a mural painting competition on Friday 27th November.

We have one day only to paint our work on a 10 metre stretch of fence on O’Connell street, North Adelaide.

I’ve never made a mural before and I’m really excited about the opportunity to fill such a large space with my work.

The criteria were quite strict – we could only use the nine colours supplied, so I reworked some of my previous iPad drawings and made a few more using the specified colours, then smashed them all together to come up with the above design – all made on an iPad. I hope the design reflects the diverse people who live, work, study and visit our beautiful North Adelaide, surrounded by park and very “Adelaide” structures such as St Peters Cathedral and the Adelaide Oval – with Mt Lofty in the background!

It will be a very long and tiring day but we will be helped along by entertainment, food and wine from 4-8pm. People will be asked to vote on site and online – come along and say hello if you’re in Adelaide, and vote for your favourite.

See Last Friday in North Adelaide for details.
