Last weekend the east coast of Australia experienced heavy rain and wild storms which eroded beaches by up to 50 meters. Today, Wednesday I visited Collaroy and Dee Why on Sydney’s northern beaches. While the sun has returned the sand has not.
This weekend we spent a bit of time at a folk festival. Great music, great weather, all together a very pleasant day. This is how I remember it.
It was a last minute, well last week, decision. Today, 5th April, I am hanging my images for a solo exhibition at the GkJE Gallery 2 at the cafe Not Just Coffee in Paddington, Sydney. You can view the images while you are enjoying your coffee from 6th – 30th April (Mon – Fri, 7:30am – 4pm, Sat & Sun, 8:30am – 3:30pm). I will have an official opening on Sat, 9th April, 2:30 – 3:30pm.
From 10 May to 4 June 2016 I will be joining 3 photo artists of the Nebuli Arts group (Jan Glover, Maureen Rogers, Des Crawley) in an exhibition at the Lane Cove Gallery as part of the Head On Photo Festival 2016.
OPERTUS – concealed, obscure, hidden
In this exhibition the photographers discover and share the richness of shadows in the real world and also those of the imagined world.
Essentially, this is an exhibition celebrating the unique quality of the art of photography with its emphasis on the interplay between darkness and light. As the works will reveal, this light play can be: the raking shadows of landscape revealing form and patterns; the city world of shadows and pools of light highlighting the graphic patterns of life; the secret world of the shadows of the mind where imagination examines the concealed, the intuitive and sentimental dimensions of human behaviour with its follies, foibles and fancies – a world of dark secrets and profound joy that is to be found in the emotional landscapes we all possess.
Below some of the images I intend to include in the exhibition.
I have been fascinated by chairs for a while. Here is an alternate way of representing them.
