MADAM METAL

By Benjamen Judd One of our favourite films growing up (and still now as an adult) was Flashdance. The whole steelworker-by-day, self-taught dance star at night thing (a thing, might we add, that was in a bar that didn’t require the girls to get their rack out) gave us the inspiration to grow up and […]

A TOUCH OF FROST

By Benjamen Judd This week we are going a little afield in our search for random things that we want to own. We ended up in South Australia (figuratively, not literally) where we came across the amazing ceramic work done by the equally amazing Susan Frost. Susan began her work in clay way back when […]

In the Darkroom at The Arts Centre Gold Coast from June 22 – August 4, 2013 I am interested in and influenced by architecture and nature, and how people interact with both.

Book paintings.

We’re not quite sure if you’d call what artist Ekaterina Panikanova creates painting, collage or installation, but there’s no questioning the fact that it’s exploding with awesomeness. The Russian lass has found a new use for crumbly old books and documents aside from sitting dustily on the mantelpiece making us feel smart: she arranges them […]

Smalltown

Gallery 2 May 11 – June 16, 2013 Smalltown The wild landscapes of Australia are routinely described as desolate and forbidding… [yet] for all the talk of hostility and harshness, there is nothing so bleak and forbidding in country Australia as the places humans have built there… Tim Winton, 2009 Smalltown is a dialogue between photographer […]

HEART OF GLASS

By Benjamen Judd Port Douglas is truly one of Australia’s most beautiful areas to visit. Even better to live, if you ask us. Warm oceans, deep tropical forests and endless sunshine can relax even the hardest of workers…we should know, because we work super hard to make sure that it stays this way.   Not […]

Rosetta Santucci at Gallery One

Gallery One presents the works of Rosetta Santucci. Here are some words about the artist: Having spent over a decade experimenting with applications like jewellery and textile design, it was a natural progression for me to start painting. My background in costume for film and television and a passion for textiles – primarily tribal and […]

Dan Withey at 19KAREN

The work of Adelaide’s Dan Withey combines detailed colour and illustration with his strong stance against globalisation and consumerism. His earthy works make reference to Native Americans and their way of life that represents complete freedom; something, he says, our society has lost.  Withey is one emerging artist to watch. With 17 successful solo shows up his sleeves, Dan’s […]

The art of being kind this April

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” ~Plato I used to have a horrible boss. I worked as a trainer in a big corporation. I can remember him coming into one of my training sessions and telling me off about something in front of my whole group. He talked to me […]
