I was stoked to get my mitz on a Ride snowboard to do my thing with for the 2011 Sidewayz exhibition…I no sooner got it back to base and took to it with my trusty angle grinder. The snowboard, which I may add was in great nic, now is divided into four separate pieces. Now what to make of it? hmmm.

BENNETT “ORANGES & LEMONS”

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

Be sure to get along to this show if in Sydney town!…

On the back of winning the Absolute Stairwell Gallery’s Peoples Choice auction and recently participating in the Adidas ‘All in Challenge’, BENNETT announces his solo show ‘ORANGES & LEMONS’.

The concept behind the show’s title is derived from a well known children’s nursery rhyme and is set to challenge the way we perceive images, from the way they are “meant” to be been viewed.

Working in mixed media, acrylic and aerosols, BENNETT’s work is often laiden with controversial and sometimes shocking commentary. He re-contextualises common, mass-produced objects and themes within the layers of his mashed up styled pieces. The result although entertaining to the audience, ultimately challenges viewers to draw upon their own conclusions from the numerous narratives and scenarios in which they are faced.

BENNETT currently works out of Sydney’s StupidKrap studios.

“ORANGES AND LEMONS” opens Thursday May 19th at 6pm.

Oh Really Gallery
55 Enmore Road, Newtown
Sydney NSW 2042
Show continues till May 29th – Opening hours 11am – 6pm

‘These are the Days’ By Leah Bartholomew @ Gorker Gallery

Monday, June 14th, 2010

Opening Night Thursday 17 June, 6:30pm – 8:30pm

Following the success of her debut solo exhibition Where the Dry Leaves Fall at Gorker Gallery in 2008, Leah Bartholomew presents her new body of work These are the Days in her second solo exhibition.

These are the Days is an intimate exploration of the small, special moments that binds us together in friendship and create a sense of place. The prints, collages and paper sculptures delicately handcrafted by Bartholomew tell the story of a protracted coming of age, anchored in the landscapes of both experience and imagination.

From poetic scenes such as the group of friends lazing in a sun-drenched field, to the bonding of the shared beer in city back streets, to the quiet moment of solitude amongst prismatic trees, these works honour the events and emotions that can seem almost insignificant at the time, but go on to become important memories and dreams. They convey a similar feeling to that of discovering the smell of bonfire smoke on a pair of jeans that you haven’t worn for weeks.

Nostalgic. Ethereal. Personal. Precious.

Exhibition runs until Sunday 27 June
Gorker Gallery – Cnr Gore & Kerr Street Fitzroy
Opening hours:
3pm – 7pm Wednesday – Friday
11am – 7pm Saturday & Sunday
Wine Tasting Wednesday 23 June, 6pm – 7pm

All tomorrow’s filters….

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

As great as the leaps towards aware software are, i cant help but feel that soon most designers will be redundant. Once the work on Trendy Filter™ has completed the streets will be inundated with out of work t-shirt designers, and the stores flooded with pyramid, starscapes and dear antlers. Scary.
