Home comforts Artists find solace in the everyday

Look Magazine
July 2017

For this issue, Look asked three regional New South Wales artists – John Bokor, Zoe Young and Kiata Mason – to create new works inspired by Henri Matisse’s concept of an art of ‘calme’ – art which translates an atmosphere of joy and peace. We asked the artists, known for their depictions of interiors, to explore the things which bring them comfort, solace and calm during our current times of uncertainty.

Together in art

Look Online
May 2020

When the world retreated indoors, the art world went online, with screens suddenly transformed from museum support act to main event. While restrictions have begun to ease, digital encounters remain a valuable point of contact and engagement. This guide to some of our favourite online connections ranges from the Gallery’s own Together In Art project to a virtual writers’ festival. We’ve also asked artists how they’d like to see things change when we come out the other side. ‘My hope is that technology will continue to break down barriers between audiences and the art world,’ artist Kim Leutwyler says. We couldn’t agree more.

 

The former Sulman and Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship finalist brings his loony toons mashups of the sacrosanct and slapstick to Olsen Gallery, 22 July–15 August.

Re-imaginings: Nostalgia and cultural memory in the paintings of Dani McKenzie and McLean Edwards

Andrew McIlroy
April 28, 2020

The packed dance floor each Thursday evening at the Rainbow Hotel in the hip inner-Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy was wedged between the corner of the bar and the heavy crimson drape masking the dimly lit entrance to the beer garden, the room thick with cigarette smoke, for the most part.

The Ned Kelly legend as you have never seen it

The Age
Nick Miller
February 21, 2020

You don’t get much more Australian than this. Ned Kelly’s girlfriend, riding Phar Lap, which has just deposited a pile of golden nuggets.

Melbourne artist Jacqui Stockdale gets that it’s funny. It’s intended to be.

 But look again, she says.

“I’ve called it Such is Love. She’s a message. I don’t want to use the word powerful. But it’s absurd. Ned Kelly’s absurd. This is summing up Australia.”

‚??The Golden Days‚?? Paul Davies solo show at the Bathurst Regional Art Gallery

7 February - 22 March 2020

 

Paul Davies is an Australian-born, Los Angeles - based artist whose work is driven by friction between opposing forces of built and natural environments, design and art, abstraction and figuration. These boundaries and relationships are illustrated through Davies' process, which combines painting, stencilling, photography and sculpture. The Golden Days reflects on the connection between Los Angeles, California, and Hill End, NSW, through an exploration of landscape and notions of ‘gold rush’ in the context of historical and present day meaning.
