We’ve had a note from National Art Glass Gallery curator Michael Scarrone (one of our all-time fave blokes) that he’s once again set up a blog to enable us all to follow her progress at Northlands. Says Michael…

The National Student Art Glass Prize is a competition established to reward and promote innovation and excellence in contemporary glass within the student sector. This exciting biennial competition is an initiative of the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery. Sarah Humphrey is the winner of the 2014 National Student Art Glass Prize for her work titled ‘A Giocherellare’ – a cello and a violin, cast in glass. Sarah was awarded an all-expenses-paid trip to attend master classes at North Lands Creative Glass in Scotland, one of the world’s most renowned centres for the practice and development of art glass. Stay tuned and follow Sarah on her journey…

Swiss performance artist Milo Moiré gets funky with eggs at Art Cologne…

In explanation the artist says it’s all about “the compressed birth of a work of art. Laboriously leaves the egg the birth canal of the artist and shatters on the screen, red colour flowing out.

“The next egg holds a different colour and thus arises gradually, accompanied only by loud ‘plops’, an abstract work – archaic, uncontrollable and intuitive. At the end of almost meditative type-birth-performance, the stained canvas is folded, smoothed and unfolded to a symmetrical mirror image of surprising colours and powerful because of universal symbolism.

“The resulting directly from the vagina image is instantly chains of thought-free – over creation fear, the symbolic power of the casual and the creative power of femininity.”

It’s all happening here

All we can say is…gosh.

[We don't imagine we'll be seeing it soon in Bega. n(Ed)]
