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.
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!
My multi-panel animated digital drawing work entitled “En Plein Air” will not be shown again in its current format. The hardware is on the way out! So, if you’re even slightly curious, go and have a look. I also have two small paintings in the exhibition.
There is a huge diversity of Art work exhibited, curated expertly by Maggie Fletcher. I hope you can manage to see it!
Today I have finally finished preparing my multi-panel digital work “En plein air” for exhibition in the Fleurieu Water and Environment Prize Finalists exhibition.
The work consists of an array of 12 digital photo frames, on each of which is an iPad drawing (originally made beside the river). The drawings are presented as mp4 files, synchronised to cycle in turn through their making and unmaking. The full cycle takes 7 min and 21 seconds.
It is impossible to show the work other than as a “still” on this page – to see it in its entirety you will have to visit the exhibition!
The exhibition will be at the South Coast regional Art centre in Goolwa, from 26th October until 25th November 2013.
