off with her head!

Just dropping in to let you know the Flower Power exhibition is still on at the Artworkers Alliance gallery at the old Paddington Substation in Brisbane until 24th April, and they have an open day from 10am-12pm on the 24th, which I’m planning to attend. They actually changed the opening and closing dates back a week from my original post about it, but as I was on my road trip when they did it, I wasn’t able to update the info. So you have one more week (or most thereof) to see my three prints and lots of other floral beauty.

I’m also letting you know I’ve entered an image into the latest round of the Saatchi Showdown Feel free to vote.

I have two images in the latest issue of F-Stop Magazine

And, excitingly, I’m included in the latest issue of the Australian Art Collector Magazine Tho

Now here’s a slightly different opening paragraph for me:

If you’re in Brisbane you should check out the first Artworkers Alliance members’ exhibition, Flower Power, taking place at their new gallery in the old Paddington Substation opening on March 26 and running until 17 April.

I have the above image taken on Lamma Island, i never promised you a rose garden and untitled #6261 included in the show, and it will be the first showing of my work in Brisbane!

Unfortunately I won’t be able to go to the opening, as I’ll be on a road trip driving from Melbourne back to Brisbane at the time, but can’t wait to see the show when I get back.

The address for the Paddington Substation is 150 Enoggera Tce, Paddington.

On a more familiar sounding note, if you’re in Melbourne you should check out the Wi

Wow. Almost a month without an update. Anyone would think I’d moved house…

But I haven’t yet. Well, not properly. I’m currently staying with my friend Mat as I sold my bed two Saturdays ago, and I’ve been packing and sorting and garage-sale-ing and exhibiting and all manner of other things.

Unsensored09 and Corangamarah Art Prize have both been and gone.

The opening of Unsensored09 was very enjoyable, catching up with other Silver Miners and also with a friend I randomly ran into about a month or so ago whom I hadn’t seen for about 10 years, and meeting his lovely wife.

The opening of Corangamarah Art Prize at Otway Estate Winery & Brewery was also a great night. Meeting those behind the prize, being interviewed briefly for the Colac Herald, and being totally spoilt by attentive staff en

It’s continuing to be a busy, busy time for me!

I did another client portrait shoot this week: an author photo for Lisa Dempster’s forthcoming book, Neon Pilgrim; and received my new book in time for the first Melbourne Blurb meet.

I went to see Salvador Dali: Liquid Desire at the NGV last week. I spent four hours absorbing this comprehensive retrospective of his work, bought a catalogue and am thankful that I bought an unlimited entry ticket to the exhibition as I’ll definitely be going back to soak it all in more.

I also had the chance to drop in to see Three Fantasies at Obscura Gallery in St Kilda, which was beautiful. Some amazing work from Deborah Hally, Sayraphim Lothian and Tebani Slade.

My lovely friend Claudia Phares seems to be gathering a little collection of my “dead things

every day is like sunday

Phewf! Another crazy week and a half, and I never feel like I have enough time in the day!

I’ve been scanning some shots I took in Blackpool back in 2001 for a submission; my new book of portraiture is in the very last stages; I have another submission almost done; my print for Unsensored09 is ready to collect from the framer, and I found out last week that Truth Lies Beyond has been selected as a finalist in this year’s Corangamarah Art Prize!

I have to find a way to get there for opening night this year, as this is my second year in a row being selected and I didn’t get to go last year.

On top of all that I am trying to make a start on culling down my belongings for the move, and went to an old friend’s wedding on Sunday night.

…And some of my self-portraiture is featured in the latest

a summer wasting

I’m back in Melbourne now, after 3.5 weeks of “holidays” at my parents’ in Brisbane. I use quotation marks because I was still doing things like putting together submissions, taking photos (though barely any self-portraits), working on grant and award applications, researching, etc., etc., etc.

I also took the time to answer some questions about my art for Brian Sherwin at Myartspace which you can read here

Whilst in Brisbane I visited the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art to see The China Project, Breaking Boundaries, Creative Generation and the Spencer Finch exhibition. I also dropped in to see the Josephine Ulrick & Win Schubert Photography Award 2009 at the Gold Coast City Art Gallery I’ll post more about The China Project soon: I was really impressed by a couple of the artists inc

I recently booked my flight to Brisbane to visit my parents for my birthday (the 17th of April). My flight arriving in Brisbane on 16th April and returning to Melbourne on 10th May is costing me far less than I expected. Apparently I had more Qantas Frequent Flyer points than I thought, so my whole fare was covered, I just had to pay the tax, carbon offset & insurance :o)

So if you’re in Brisbane, drop me a Bubblemail and let me know if you’re maybe interested in catching up for a photo walk or a drink. My parents live a bit of a way out and I don’t drive, so my mobility may be a bit limited, but I’ll see what I can do :o)

If you’re after a print from my stores I’d recommend getting your order in before I jet off, as I won’t be able to post / ship prints whilst I’m out of town. Obviou
