Before getting back to regular blogging, a brief update on the last few months.
SALA EXHIBITION; For the South Australian Living Artist's Festival, Dianne & I decided to show some of our new work in Adelaide. Neither of us have exhibited here in our home town in 4 years, so a 8 day exhibition in our recently renovated studio was organised. To title the venue we created "Cube Contemporary Art Projects", not as a permanent venue, just as a "pop-up" project.
Dianne's exhibition "Noir" allowed her to exhibit the recent development in her art locally, as none of this work has been seen here.
My exhibition "Useless Beauty" was a preview of about half of the paintings for my upcoming Melbourne exhibition with Charles Nodrum Gallery. As I said, I haven't shown my art here for 4 years & not for trying. The last 2 years asking my representing gallery "Hill Smith Fine Art" for a solo show, with Sam Hill Smith saying...."urhhh...errr..No".
Net result of previewing my art here was a nasty letter from Hill Smith Gallery, for both Dianne and myself. What a complete and utter fucking shit for brains dickhead!
Studio Renovations; In July, after a month of cleaning out the studio, I employed my nephew George to paint the gallery rooms of the studio a new colour (Shale , Porter's Paints) & a custom made salmon pink colour for the entrance wall.
