I'm grateful I've recently taken a holiday to the holy land to acquaint with family I've never before met and as a result now understand from where my roots are spawned and why I am the way I am. Wouldn't say this holiday has provided me respite, but it has energised me in new ways and perspectives, for which I'm grateful. I've returned to delightedly announce the following news, that my artistic offspring are being exhibited this month across three different galleries and establishments.
If you are proximate to Sydney (and hence myself) you will have two opportunities to enjoy my work alongside those of other wonderful Sydney artists. One of my works will be featured as part of Gaffa's Ten Years anniversary exhibition, opening the 15th and running until the 23rd September. More info here and coming soon via social media channels, etc.
And for one night only - showcasing more than just flashing lights is one of Sydney's newest and rather needed nights for great art specific to it's inner city location of Chippendale is the BEAMS Festival 2016. My new work postquam terrae (an experimental video created in collaboration with the amazing performer Kathryn Puie) will debut on the rooftop of shop belonging to Extraordinary Ordinary Day - a flagship concept for shoes designed by the talented Ashley Lim. We both saw fit the connection of her minimal yet dynamic footwear to my work exploring the physicality of finding ground and walking unknown territory. We approached Nicky Ginsberg with this idea and here we are enjoying a Sydney spring art festival. So come down, the streets of Chippendale will be alive and plenty to see, eat, drink and chat about. Save Saturday 17th September from 5-10pm in your diaries and call out. Would be lovely to see you.

If you are in Tasmania this month - my video Aura Nox Anima (which premiered earlier this year at Gaffa, Sydney and the Chippendale New World Art Prize) is being screened at the Tasmanian International Video Art Festival (TIVAF) opening tomorrow: Friday 2nd Sep and running until the 24th Sep.
