Art at work: Melinda Harper

Castlemaine Art Museum
June 2020

From exuberant and optical through to pensive and moody, Castlemaine based artist Melinda Harper’s abstraction is endlessly absorbing and uplifting. Inspired by her lived experience of the visual world, Harper’s small precise paintings, watercolours and embroideries are equally influenced by early 20th-century abstraction and mid-century modernists. We are delighted to say CAM is currently working with Melinda towards an exhibition at CAM in the not too distant future. Harper shares with us something of her working life in this email interview.

Maroon 5’s Jesse Carmichael Keeps it Short and Sweet with Two-Minute Movies

KCET
July 2020

Participants can do as they like, but it can’t run longer than two minutes; that’s the idea behind 2 Minute Movies (2mm), a collective of filmmakers and artists founded in early 2019 by Maroon 5’s Jesse Carmichael. “The biggest takeaway from this period of isolation is just how important it is to have friends and family around to make things in life with; memories and art,” he tells “Southland Sessions.” Despite starting before the pandemic, the collective’s more recent videos reflect intimate portraits of the current moment.

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.

Jacqui Stockdale

Artist Profile
Nur Shkembi
February 2020

Melbourne-based artist Jacqui Stockdale works across photography, drawing, painting, collage and performance to explore the disparate and overlooked histories of Australia. Through archetypal characters, symbolism and carefully researched theatrical settings, costumes, and props including live animals, Stockdale focuses her lens on the female narratives of the past in the hope of shedding some light on the fraught issues of Australia as a nation in the present.
