Don’t touch, and definitely DON’T lick!

The latest offering at the Brenda May Gallery on Danks Street is the ‘Untitled Show.’ The exhibition theme is based on creating an opportunity for the viewer to have their own personal thoughts and interpretations of each piece’s meaning. There are 15 artists in total.

We immediately gravitated to Al Munro’s piece in the back corner. I’m not even there anymore and I’m salivating again. No prizes for guessing which piece it is below. Those wonderful colours are bright, fun and bring on a sense of nostalgia. Munro is currently working on an arts/maths fellowship and often uses scientific and mathematical data as a starting point for her creations.

We also loved Jim Croke’s work. Jackson Pollockish however painted with such precision one would think a fencer was called in and their sabre used to complete the canvas. Croke teaches at the NAS and is well known for his sculptures.

Lastly the car with overflowing baggage is Todd Fuller’s creation. We giggled, what a nice piece reminding us that we all have too many things. Fuller is multi disciplined, having his paws in various pots working on illustration, painting, performance and his hand drawn animations were awarded with an honourable mention at the 15th Asian Art Biennale (2012). Nice work!

The show runs until October 24.

Brook Andrew’s giant geometric beauties at The Cutaway.

You may remember the Travelling Colony of seven hand-painted caravans for the 2012 Sydney Festival which explored and celebrated Redfern’s people, culture and community. Well, Brook Andrew is the first to open an exhibit at the Cutaway gallery in the Barangaroo site.

The Weight of History, The Mark of Time, is a large scale installation that promises to play on the senses as the four floating sculptures ‘breath’ and are lit internally adding another dimension. The soundscape accompanying the installation by Theodore Wohng, De Anima, is based on Aristotle’s idea of the soul. We’re a little excited to experience this in the flesh.

You really should experience these giant geometric beauties for yourself. We had a snoop during our lunch hour an can’t wait to get closer on the weekend.

Did someone say “geometric”?

Saturday was a spectacular day! Why? Because we almost faint with excitement with anything geometric.

We popped into the Geometrica show at the Mild Manners​ gallery. This is our first visit to the gallery and it’s lovely. You hop through a book/records store and up the stairs to an light and airy space. We particularly love the hues of the pink coming through the back window. Yummy.

It was great to have a chat to the curator, Amber Creswell Bell, who puts on about 4 shows a year. Congrats to you and the artists!

Better get in quick as there are only 3 days left to catch it. This Thursday to Sunday, at 1/499 Crown Street, Surry Hills.

Artists in the snap are @genevievefelixreynolds @emmalipscombe_ @evi_o @liamsnootle on insta.
