FanBoy vs. ArtBoy

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

This is my piece for the upcoming FanBoy vs. ArtBoy show @ ArtBoy Gallery in Prahran, Melbourne. If you are in the neighbourhood get along to check some awesome video game inspired art! Show opens this Friday, see the flyer below for all the deets.

This sculpture titled “19XX” is inspired by the classic WW2 shoot ‘em up series 19XX released by Capcom – which includes the games 1942 (1984), 1943-The Battle Of Midway (1987),1943 Kai-Midway Kaisen (1988), 1941-Counter Attack (1990), 19XX-The War Against Destiny (1995) and 1944-The Loop Master (2000).

Westsyde needs your support!

Monday, November 15th, 2010

Westsyde Connection is an independently run skate shop in Dulwich Hill, in Sydney’s inner west. During it’s relatively short existence of a couple of years, it has quickly manifested into what could be better described as a collective hub than your usual run of the mill skate store. Not only do they cater for skaters of all levels, they also support the local arts by hosting regular exhibitions in their gallery space and showcase some amazing art on their walls from emerging artists to the more established players on the scene…which brings us to the issue at hand.

It seems that their neighbours The Salvation Army have taken issue with one wall in particular, this being their common boundary wall and now Westsyde Connection has a Supreme Court lawsuit on it’s hands.  The wall displays a massive mural that was completed over the course of 2009 and 2010 by a whole bunch of Sydney and Melbourne crew. After having a chat to Westsyde’s RJ Williams, it was decided to leave the artists involved names out of this post due to legalities.

What is hard to comprehend is that the wall actually faces back into Westsyde’s backyard, better known as “the compound” and in no way does it encroach upon the Salvos or anyone else for that matter. Infact it has livened up an otherwise massive ugly brown brick wall. I bet If the fellas from Westsyde had chosen to slap up a few sheets of lattice and plant some climbers the Salvos wouldn’t have any issues. So what has become apparent is their sheer ignorance and awareness towards their community’s youth culture (the youth who they claim to support) and creativity in general. Surely the dollars would be far better spent on more charitable causes rather than wasted on pursuing ridiculous lawsuits upon their neighbours.

Salvos, practice what you preach…Matthew 19:19 “Love your neighbour as yourself”.

Yeah right.

Check the mural below that has created the shit fight and be sure to sign the petition to show your support!

‘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

TEZ.

Australian artist TEZ is an all rounder, his art spans across an array of mediums including painting, sculpture, ceramics, screen-printing and vector illustration. Much of his work comprises of a combination of these mediums and often incorporates recycled materials and found objects. TEZ unveiled his debut solo exhibition “Sure Ain’t Sushi” at Sydney’s China Heights gallery in late 2009. He resides in his “fibro castle” on the New South Wales Central Coast and more often than not can be found in his shed creating his next fresh piece or just plain old tinkering.
