Sensitivity in art

It’s been a while since I posted other artists whose work resonates with me. In some ways I have been living in a cocoon of shelter from so many things lately. When I came back from New York, there was a wonderful sense in my heart and soul of artistic optimism, yet sadly, since that time it has been quite subdued. Much of the…

Time in America – Artists and Exhibitions

I should have realised that there just wouldn’t be time to complete a travel journal blog, given how much we were intending to do in the US in those 4 and a ½ weeks. What I also should have anticipated was that it would all go mad when we came home and had to get back into work and all the other mundane things…

Fireworks: a Celebration of Community Resilience – Art Exhibition

For those who are around the Blue Mountains this weekend drop in and see this wonderful exhibition being held at the Springwood Community Arts Centre; a couple of pieces of my work and the artwork of my mother and so many talented local artists will be showcased in it.

Dust

It has been a long time between posts, and is so often the way, the longer you go without writing, the harder it is to begin. Even more this time, for any explanation I should give would seem to drag out my soul and lay it bare for everyone to pick over. Some might argue that this is what I do with my art,…

Touching Nature – Postcards

A very quick little update on the Touching Nature joint exhibition. My selected images are off to Nulab to be printed on metallic pearl paper (a first for me as a medium) and should be back with me early next week, ready for the long hard slog of working out how I want them backed! Even though they have been proofed to within an…

One of these works will be chosen to appear in the their Still Point Quarterly publication. To check out my work in the online exhibition go to the following link and…

Gearing up for the Touching Nature exhibition

I am finally gearing up for my brief exhibition this year, and am feeling slightly overwhelmed. There just isn’t the time to put into writing this blog that I imagined I would have, which is such a shame. I feel uncomfortable scribbling something roughly and putting it up for the world to see. I want to take time and care, and nurture my words…

As I get my head around the concept of having this blog, I remain conflicted about aspects of it… What exactly should a blog be? They are such individual things. Are they there simply for the edification of the creator or the audience? Are they a little of both? Where does the fine line between egotistical opinion pushing and mindless drivel lie? I know…
