score for forming chords & crossbars

I thought it was time to post a sneak peek from work being developed for my upcoming solo exhibition at Lowrise Projects in Richmond - a wonderfully intimate, light-filled, converted warehouse space recently set up by the lovely Melanie Flynn, former gallery manager at Karen Woodbury Gallery, and her partner Jeremy Smart. They are also the folk behind Artsphere, which provides a very fine website service for artists.

I popped into the gallery on Saturday and absolutely loved the current show - delicate black & white photographic and graphite works by
Genevieve Swifte, conceived from her residencies at the Upernavik Museum, Northwest Greenland and the Photomedia Workshop, The Australian National University School of Art. These stark, minimally rendered landscapes, although small, still managed to expound such a strong sense of place - it would be truly brilliant to head to this part of the world.

There’s no doubt that my quirky, colourful drawings which will follow this show, will present a somewhat blaring contrast!

… and here are the all important details!
