Noah Taylor | Semi-Permanent Artist Talk

Noah Taylor has been announced as a speaker at Semi-Permanent next year. Semi-Permanent is an international creative event for the arts, and will take place in Sydney, 2015 on the 22nd and 23rd of May at Carriageworks.

‘One of the largest events of its type, Semi-Permanent is a creative platform spreading art and design inspiration. It consists of a conference and side events which include exhibitions, competitions, workshops and parties… Semi-Permanent explores the diverse and exciting design world bringing together exceptionally talented artists and designers to speak at the event.” – Semi-Permanent

Noah Taylor’s artistic practice is wide-ranging in its span. While he has made music and performed as an actor for much of his life, it is only over the past five year that he has begun exhibiting his work as an artist. Living and working in England, Taylor creates ambiguous images centering around isolation, the same characters often found across multiple works, reflective of the way they have recurred to the artist throughout his life.

The schedule for Semi-Permanent will be released soon. You can find more information on their website

Tamara Dean | Semi-Permanent, Wellington

Tamara Dean was invited to talk at Wellington’s ‘Semi-Permanent’, a creative conference spanning two days, as part of a week long celebration of all things visually creative. Held on Saturday 19 October, Dean discussed her creative journey, career, work and inspiration. As a favourite among attendees, Kaan Hiini of Design Assembly stated, Despite her apparent nerves, she did a fantastic job of dissecting her career, the development of her technique and her impressive body of work. I loved the frankness with which she talked about her weaknesses and how they helped shape her work.” Also of Design AssemblyBrendon O’Dwyer said, “I loved Tamara’s work. I really appreciate the way in which she brings in threads of spirituality to her work, especially in today’s increasingly secular society. ”

Palavermedia beautifully described Dean’s most recent series, The Edge as “a reflection on the absence of structured rites of passage through instigating moments such as the image […] of young adults poised on the edge of ‘jumping off’ as photographed in the “optimal light” 15 minutes after the sun has set.”
