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.

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!

Slippage

My small SALA exhibition opens at Jorells Face Hair Body, City Cross, Adelaide tomorrow. There are a number of patched and slashed digital drawings in light boxes, and four paintings. I’ve also made a very large light box using the salon’s advertising window and transforming it with an extra large print of one of my iPad drawing “mash-ups”.

It’s fun, and my own little plug for observational drawing and the primacy of “seeing”.

Drinks with the Artist are from 5-7, and the exhibition runs for a month.

Gleam – drawing to a close

“Gleam” finishes this Saturday, 22nd November at 5pm. It is my current exhibition of drawings and paintings at Hill Smith Gallery, 113 Pirie Street, Adelaide. The gallery is open from 10-5, Tuesday until Friday, and 2-5 on Saturday. My work is upstairs on level 1, and on the ground floor is a beautiful exhibition by Thom Buchanan. I won’t be exhibiting for a while, so if you can get along to see it I’d be really happy!
