next solo show at new gallery

 Flamingos Snowdome 70 x 70 cm oil on canvas

New solo show entitled Honestly! opens on the 18th March 2011 at the new gallery space Retrospect Galleries Qld. Cnr Elizabeth Ave and Oracle Blvd, Broadbeach.

Honestly kitsch, honestly ugly, honestly dishonest… snow domes make no claim to be anything other than a flawed imitation of something bigger, grander and purer. A foray into the anti authentic.  A possible metaphor for the human condition – our incompleteness, our dorky charm and the hope for the future.


Vroom… a solo show of 17 works will open on the 23rd Dec
and run until the 24th Feb 2011 at the Albury Regional Gallery, N.S.W.

network exhibition


Net Work: the TLF exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ballarat

December 2010 / January 2011

One forum. Thirty-eight artists. Over 100 pieces of art.

Net Work: the TLF exhibition is an exhibition of the work of 38 artists who are members of a private online forum for professional contemporary visual artists, “The Littlest Forum” (TLF).

Curated by Amanda van Gils, Net Work showcases the diversity of artists who utilise the Internet as a vital tool in their artistic careers, if not directly in their artistic practice. The Internet is having a profound impact on artist’s practice as well as providing new opportunities for artists to establish much needed connections.

The artists in this exhibition are connected through a need and willingness to communicate and interact with other artists, forming in the process an “artistic community” without geographical, social or economic boundaries.

The artists in Net Work are:

Kim Anderson / Aliey Ball / Jan Berg / Kate Bergin /Sue Beyer / Louise Blyton / Dave Brayshaw / Claire Bridge / David Coles / Simon Collins / Jacqui Comer / Dagmar Cyrulla / Chris Delpratt / Andrew Ensor / Robert Fenton / Dianne Gall / Michelle Giacobello / Minka Gillian / Erika Gofton / Debbie Hill / Robert Hollingworth / Kez Hughes / Julie Keating / Siobhan Kelley / Glenn Locklee / Vito Manfredi / Deb Mostert / Ilona Nelson / Beth Norling / Steve Rosendale / Mark Stewart / Jim Thalassoudis / Merryn J. Trevathan / Joanne Turner / Amanda van Gils / Steve Warburton / Irene Wellm / Darian Zam
