Vale Klaus…

Friend/mentor/oft-time critic(!) – you straddled the globe but, hey, your greatest gift was the ability to communicate your extraordinary creative drive, and give impetus, to Everyman.

Whether you were storming the pinnacles of Europe, America and the greater World-at-Large…

…at the heart of it all you loved that fickle mistress, Glass. And Glass loved you.

 





Archibald 2016 Finalists…

7 07 2016

Yeah, well it’s that time again, the Archies – something that we always look forward to…but have to admit we perused the field with little great enthusiasm. A flicker of interest here and there, but no seismic shifts until we came across…

So arresting/appealing on soooo many levels.

Fabulous! Love his work, big time. Canberra Time’s backstory here.





Un-believable…

It’s beyond comprehension; two doting mothers indulgently filming their kids damaging an artwork by Shelly Xue at the Shanghai Museum of Glass…

Clearly the kids read the cordoned off area as a boxing/martial arts ring – something patently not discouraged by the moronic mothers.

Jesus wept!! Full story here.

[Thanks for the headzup, Nige, n(Ed)]

…meanwhile, where were the ubiquitously lurking gallery guards?

The divided works.

The divided works pay homage to minimalism and the process of construction.
These compositions incorporate building materials where a horizontal element is introduced to allude to the horizon line.
A key idea in this series was to stick to a set of rules around proportion and let the surface of the work convey a sense of space.
