I was so pleased to be invited to exhibit works at the Melbourne East Arts Festival on Friday 18th August to Sunday 20th August. Inside this beautiful little church, alongside the magnificent stained glass windows I will be exhibiting a solo still-life exhibition of paintings made especially for this occasion. In another room I will be exhibiting a selection of collage work with the highly regarded and beautiful sculpture of Michael Meszaros.
By the way I have heard that the wine and food flows at this event.
Hope you can come along and join us at the Friday evening opening at 8.30pm (note there is a $10 fee as it is a fundraiser for the church) and please also keep in mind the other calendar of events available during this weekend.
Michael and I will be there most of the weekend to talk to you. Please contact me for any further information or contact the email addresses on the brochure.
If you are blogging friend of follower I would love for you to pop in and say hi to me. If you wish to see more of the work I am exhibiting you can email me.
The more the merrier.
The first two pictures are from a new collection of still life paintings I am making for an exhibition at Holy Trinity Anglican Church in East Melbourne.
The apples are by Marija Patterson talented sculptor that is now playing with paint.\ in my Wed morning workshop.
I have added a couple of photos of the beautiful Holy Trinity Church.
The crawling rabbit that looks like a spring lamb has just passed by the Greek Easter Eggs to who knows where his gaze is taking him. The birthday girl is my gorgeous niece. I make her a digital piece with her image in it for each birthday. This one is not as surreal as usual but she looks aptly rugged up for the Autumn weather.
Having some cake with her tonight.
I am continuing the pencil drawings over the abstract painted backgrounds and here are two new ones. If you are observant you will see that I drew variations of the same plant which is something I don’t usually do.
I was Stupid, Stupid, Stupid when I did the blueish one on the left because I prepared the background about two weeks ago and drew the image only two nights ago and the next day started searching for the one I had started with, the one that everyone on social media was liking alot. Couldn’t find it for ages and then turned over the picture below and realised that I had painted and drawn on the back of it. Stupid.
Mason my grandson has been placed inside one of my surreal collages ‘ Friends with Dogs’. Number 8 of 12 I am making for him.
By the way I am still working on the new yellowish one and it’s getting better.
I saw some lovely brush strokes in my offcuts and as I use lovely Arches or Fabriano paper they looked too good to discard so I assembled these little sculptures. I know I know I need to go bigger but these things are unplanned and work for that reason alone. I hope you agree.
The kangaroo is in Easey Street Collingwood (not by me sorry don’t know the artist) and the Two Tough Bunnies are by me and are at Incub8er in Smith Street Collingwood (for sale).
