simulacrum

I can’t believe how quickly a month has passed!

That’s how long it’s been since I’ve had a chance to update my blog, as my second solo show, simulacrum opened at Obscura Gallery in Melbourne on Sunday 13th June, so I was in Melbourne from the evening of the 11th until the afternoon of the 14th to hang the show, attend the opening, and catch up with friends and family.

I returned to Brisbane, and a mere five days later I was moving house into a lovely shared Queenslander with some wonderful folk, Nicole and Brady.

Despite how much I culled in the move from Melbourne to Brisbane, it still took my dad and I two weekends to move everything, though we did a sterling job of it, with some help from my mum, and it didn’t involve removalists at all, thankfully.

And as with every move, there’s alw

exhibitionism

For those in Melbourne, here’s all the details you need about my next exhibition, a selection of my self-portraiture from the past four years.

I will be in Melbourne for the opening, so please drop in and say hi, and no doubt there will be many drinks to be had afterward.

I’m much more interested in the main, non-people’s-vote prize of this competition, which, if I were somehow to win, would allow me to travel to New York this year after all, and stay for longer than I’d hoped, but if you feel the urge, it would be lovely if you’d do the clicky-thing and give me as many stars as you feel I deserve for my submission to the Power of Self competition currently being run by Artists Wanted. You can vote once every 24 hours if it takes your fancy. You’ll have my thanks for 1 click or 100.

I highly doubt the likelihood I’ll win this as there are some absolutely brilliant entries to the competition… and that’s just the artists I know…

Meanwhile, the good news is that my credit card is paid up but for money that isn’t due until the start of February. I opened a n

collaborators

An image from a recent collaboration with Claudia Phares

For someone like myself who is something of a self-confessed control freak, who enjoys self-portraiture specifically for the fact I have total artistic control over all aspects of the image, you would think I’d consider “collaboration” to be a dirty word.

Not so, however.

Though until recently it’s been something of a haphazard happening for me, it is fast becoming an experience I embrace and relish the fruits of.

Obviously in portraiture there is always at least some element of collaboration. Even where the concept and intention is primarily formulated and directed by the photographer, few models are totally malleable blank canvases and will undoubtedly always give some direction to a shoot through their actions, expressions, and

FINALLY!!!!!

I promise, this is not just another tease! We were so close to releasing the book to the general public at the beginning of April, then found out we could donate the proceeds to Madre after all, which meant a bit more administration work before the book could be set free to fly into your hands.

A lot of love, a lot of work, and a lot of lovely ladies make this book a true slice of awesome!

Now all the work is done, and the book is available for you to drool over, so get your clammy hands on a copy now!

And for a double-shot of awesome, the first collection She Took Her Own Picture is still available through the FSPASG account on Blurb. You can find it through the above link.

In Her Own Image features work from 87 artists. You can see their names, and work via links on my bl
