sala festival

Art and COVID19

We are all working from home more, and out of home opportunities for Artists have for the moment mostly vanished.

I’ve noticed that this website is sorely in need of update – a good COVID19 iso goal! So watch this space.

Also, SALA (South Australian Living Artists festival) this year is likely to be very different, so over the next few posts I am going to be experimenting with how I might share my work online in SALA style.

I hope to show some of my drawings and how they were made, and how they might then give rise to other work.

As a starter, here is a drawing I made this morning, and if you follow the hyperlink on her name you will see the drawing replayed, including the squiggly play where I was testing out the new unfamiliar app that I was using today.

“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.
