Book with boots and branches on cover

It was a project that I put a great amount of time and energy into and until I held the book in my hands I had no way of knowing if the book would actually get printed.  But look ! It happened! 

 

It was weird to see the illustrations slightly bigger in the book…

Painting of figure in garden"Fire at Bean Gully" Sofia Arnold

 

Each week we present a curated collection of artwork. This week the theme is Subdued.  As in the brooding low-level energy conjured by muddy, dim pallettes and soft edges. Featuring art by: Sofia Arnold, Shawn Demarest, Noah Verrier, David Hockney, Camilla Engman, Dean Osgood and Tim Van Ginkel.  I love these works for their ability to be soft and strong at the same time. Low contrast,…

Artist Portfolio: El Celso

"Crush"

 

Today we are taking a look at the porfolio of artist El Celso. When I look at El Celso's work I get a feel that the work has a beat to it. I love the element of repetition that comes across. Whether the act of stacking tonnes of glittering bottles of fluid, a triad of giant candy apples or the paper work above.  I immediately start to look for the variations between the objects and that really draws me into the artwork more.…

I hope this article will provide a little insight about how to be critical about your content so that you can learn what posts will get seen and your art gets shared!

 

First off, let's understand the nature of the beast shall we?…

Photography Portfolio: Madi Chambers

Today we are taking a look at the photography portfolio of Madi Chambers. When I look at Madi Chamber's works I think about things that are mysterious, partially revealed and touching on the uncanny.

I'm the type that likes to be kept guessing so this…

My First Artist Talk


Three women sitting in art gallery

 

So despite my nervous feelings I managed to hold my first artist talk for my recent exhibition. The photo above by Julie Lee shows (from left to right) myself, Angela Fama and our facilitator Katie Huisman. The show consisted of work by myself (paintings of icebergs and portals) and Angela Fama (photos of deliciously aged sign posts) . The talk was held at 4pm so I had the morning so think over the reasons that I create my work in…
