“Creation” – SALA 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.

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!

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!
