exciting upcoming exhibition!























Taking the ‘artist swap’ concept one step further, Exchange features art works by 55 contemporary artists – each artist is contributing one piece to swap with another artist in the exhibition and another piece that will be available for purchase, both works will be included in the exhibition during November 2011 at Gatakers Art Space, Maryborough, Qld.

These 2 works: Children of the Sea 25 x 35 cm oil on canvas and The Goldfinch 25 x 35 cm oil on canvas will be my offerings to this exciting project.



Prometheus Art Awards and Moreton Bay Regional Art Awards have selected the works Bugs and Silverware Diptych and Charm is Deceitful, Beauty is Fleeting (respectively) to hang in their exhibitions this year.

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.
