“Creation” – SALA 2019 exhibition at Hentley Farm Winery Cellar Door

This SALA (South Australian Living Artists) festival I have an Exhibition at Hentley Farm Winery.

Called “Creation”, it is the body of work produce during my collaboration with Hentley Farm Wines via Adelaide Central School of Art to design an Art work for their limited release “The Creation” Shiraz (2017)

Working on this project involved several months of immersion at “F Block” where the grapes were grown for this 2017 very special shiraz.

I made a number of iPad ‘drawings’, measuring the changes over time in the landscape and the vines. The final label design grew out of these works, expressing the unique qualities of “F Block”.

The exhibition continues throughout August 2019, 11am – 5pm daily at Hentley Farm Cellar door, Corner Gerald Roberts and Jenke Roads, Seppeltsfield. Work is for sale, you can enquire via this blog, or details provided on the floor sheet at the exhibition.

SALA 2019 – Saint Ignatius Art Show

The Saint Ignatius Art Show opens this evening and continues all weekend for SALA. It is a popular biennial fixture in SALA, where a broad range of local Artists show their work.

I will be exhibiting a small group of paintings and iPad mash-ups. Making this body of work I was thinking about cultural and religious traditions and the timelessness of stories associated with them. Our stories needn’t be assigned to “museums” of thought. They are living and contemporary expressions of our connectedness. I also like to muse on the possibility of these stories crossing cultural and religious borders.

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.

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.
