Birds

The birds flight has been a symbol of freedom to man since the dawn of time. During this recent period, when our movement has been restricted and our freedoms curtailed, it seems appropriate to return to this motif. This theme has been chosen as a gathering point for this group show, to allow us to transcend the physical restrictions on our freedom through community and artistic collaboration

Exhibition 12 – 26th March 2021

Blue Mountains Portraits 2021
23 Jan – 7 Mar

Blue Mountains Portraits is the Cultural Centre’s annual celebration of the local community and its diverse members. The exhibiting artists portray the unique people that make up the cultural fabric of the Blue Mountains and tell the stories behind the person.
A Blue Mountains City Art Gallery exhibition.

Buried in the Garden 1 – Clare Delaney

I entered a portrait of Clare Delaney into Portraits 2021 at The Blue Mountains Cultural Centre.

I met Clare during the installation of the Occupied exhibition at the BMCC in June 2020.

I was instantly attracted to Clare’s earthy personality and artwork. The more we talked the more I saw how her life and artwork linked. Clare loves her garden and art, connecting both by burying her artwork in the garden and letting nature do its part.

Clare generously agreed to participating in an intimate project which involves me drawing her portrait and entering it in Portraits 2021. After the exhibition ends the artwork will be buried in Clare’s garden, left for nature to do its thing, then exhibited again in Portraits 2022.

Buried in the Garden 1 has been made using naturally found charcoal, ochres and sap so it is tastier for the creatures that live in Clare’s garden.

 

 

Sound Drawings

An innovative dialogue between the creative disciplines of sound and drawing.

Jody Graham & Mark Cauvin Sound Drawing Instruments.

 Jody Graham and Mark Cauvin perform a duet responding to each other’s creative practice. Mark is an improvisor and composer who will be playing the double bass and Jody is a multidisciplinary artist who will be drawing. Sound Drawing is an inspired performance that generates a unique evocative language of its own. This manifests in a rhetoric of sound and marks that explores the possibilities of performance practice between a musician and a visual artist.

I am very pleased to be a finalist in the 66th Blake Prize with my artwork – Trashed

Since 1951, The Blake Prize has engaged artists, nationally and internationally, with ideas of spirituality and religion. The prize takes its name from William Blake, the world-famous 18th Century artist, and poet who threaded the religious and artistic throughout his practice. Building on this history, The 66th Blake Prize continues to encourage contemporary artists of varied styles and religious and spiritual allegiances to create significant works of art, which engage in conversations and negotiations concerning spirituality, religion and/or belief.
Exhibition at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre – 13 February – 11th April 2021.
