We’ve often thought about making glass googie eggs, if only as a sweet bread’n’butter Easter production line – so it was nice to stumble across these engagingly pop Dennis Chamberlain cuties…

We also rather like his Spires…

…(from The Rorschach series, above.)

There’s something rather satisfying about the absence of pomposity.

Thanks Jac for reminding us – next week brings the announcement of the Doug Moran.

We fancy Anthony Bennett’s study for a portrait of reg (but we’re complete Regophiles, so we’re totally biased)…

As ever, it could be anybody’s win. Check the field out here.

Merv Bishop’s fabulous photograph (above) of that seminal moment – Prime Minister Gough Whitlam pouring soil into the hands of traditional land owner Vincent Lingiari, Northern Territory in 1975. (Shame that the flame has been all but extinguished by subsequent governments…)

You’ll always loom large, comrade.
