Melting Pot





SALA is almost here once again and I'm quite excited despite not actually doing anything this year - as I wanted to focus on my studio and making new works. Yet I did manage to put  some works in the members/SALA exhibition at the RSASA called " Into the Melting Pot".


 It is a huge amalgamation of all different types of works and definitely worth a look. I put in "Unrealities (Into the Woods)" and  "Untitled" a dead bird watercolour study, both pictured above.

Happy SALA times!!!

Ingrained






This Thursday night, Espionage Gallery will be holding another great group show with a “wood” theme . After Gary Seaman’s amazing solo show this exhibition should be another fantastic one bringing together all sorts of artists who have worked with wood.

I only recently came to painting/drawing on wood, as I am extremely fond of canvas but it is quite refreshing and different. I found I could achieve much sharper lines and I liked the wood grain so much I decided to keep it in the background and make it a feature in these recent works.
The above image is a progress shot of a work I did for this particular show but if you want to see it in the flesh than you had better head down this Thursday!


From the event page:
Espionage Gallery Proudly Presents: Ingrained, A Group Exhibition of all works on wood.

For this exhibition Espionage Gallery asked 25 top artists to make works out of wood or paint something on wood. Quickly replacing the more traditional medium of canvas, artists are now turning their creative energy and talent towards this medium. The surface and texture provides endless scope of creative possibilities.

Opening Night Thursday July 19, 6pm at Espionage Gallery, Suite 1, Level 2, 93 Rundle Mall, Adelaide, (entrance off Lindes Lane)

Featuring works by
David Soukup (Chicago), Rebecca Murphy (Sydney), Zan Von Zed (Sydney), Jessica Bellman, Ellie Kammer, Jenny Allnutt, Gary Seaman, Fletch Cuts, Joshua Smith, Donovan Christie, Mustachio, Michael Carney, Kate Kowald, Jelena V, Josh Searson, Scatterbrain, Jayson Fox, Rem, Peter Fong, Lilian Choo, Hex 1, Tiff Rysdale, Amazonas, Jake One, Daybot, Steve O'Connor, Julian Lee
