Rone – Empty – Scann3D/VR

After seeing one of the most amazing shows of all time, Rone’s Empty, and knowing the space would soon disappear – I had to introduce Rone to some good friends of mine, the crew at Scann3D.  Using their super high end 360 scanning technology – we spent about 5 hours in the space after the show closed one night scanning the entire show – and after many hours of intense rendering the guys at Scann3D have created this 360 capture of the show.  This technology is like google maps on steroids and is a unique and powerful format to capture

Through The Lens October 2016 – David Russell Photography

Join me once again as its that time to see what I saw in the month of October, it was a big month for artist Rone with his exhibition “EMPTY“, man what a show this was exhibited in the old Lyric theatre for the last time before demolition. October also saw “The Art Of Banksy“, exhibition behind Federation square along the train tracks, there was so much controversy surrounding this show. I wasn’t too phased I was just happy to be there with handful of my good mates who’s art featured on the way in to the exhibition, its on

Snapshots – EMPTY – RONE – Lyric Theatre

This show will be talked about long after the metal monsters tear down this beautiful 1920’s theatre that Rone brought back to life, giving Melbourne one last chance to see her in all her beauty. And boy did she shine especially from a photographers point of view, I returned 3 times to capture the amazing space come to life with these incredible shards of light coming through the porthole windows from 3:30 pm. I also loved just watching all the reactions of the bystanders as they walked in and were struck by a 10 metre mural depicting a female over

Snapshots – The Art Of Banksy – The Paddock Federation Square

This is one show that had its fair share of critics “The Art Of Banksy” featuring art purchased by various collectors on display in a faux London street scape. I myself am a big fan as are many are of Banksy’s work as it is what street art was originally about and that is using the street to convey a message about war, hunger, greed, politicians and the list goes on. It was great to see the works up close but something just didn’t feel right, some of the works felt out of place on a clean sterile wall, as

Snapshots – IN THE SHADOWS OF MANKIND – GEORGIE SECCULL – Gas Works Art Space

Once again congratulations to Georgie Seccull on her first solo show at the Gasworks arts space in Albert park, when I attended the show last week I was impressed to say the least. On seeing her creations up close one got to appreciate the amount of work that went into each piece she had created. Made from wood, metal, wire and other everyday objects, I could see Georgie had employed many techniques to bring these amazing pieces of art to life. For those that couldn’t make it to her show enjoy the photos I took while I was at the

Through The Lens September 2016 – David Russell Photography

The month of September saw me capture everything from exhibitions featuring Shida at the new Backwoods space over in Footscray, Ha Ha at Off The Kerb Gallery and Frenchy at Backwoods Gallery, I also managed to spend a bit of time in the heart of Melbourne in Bourke Street with one of my favourite artists Mayonaize. As per usual I have a bunch of night time long exposure shots doing a bit of light painting, this has to be some of my favourite work as I have said many times in my previous posts, the art comes alive under torch

Snapshots – Brainfade – Frenchy – Backwoods Gallery

Almost forgot to post these photos from the exhibition Brainfade by the artist Frenchy at Backwoods Gallery a few weeks back, so for those were unable to attend the show enjoy the photos I captured.

Interview – Ox King

Distinctive, colorful, weird and downright gorgeous are all words that I’d attribute to the work of Ox King – and even then, they are meager words and are not able to give full justice to the pieces he does. Having worked across the years honing his style, which crosses between pop and fantastical fauna, to the realms of saturated manga-come-blade-runner-esque feminine visuals, Ox King has quickly become one of the most recognisable artists painting walls across Australia. Working predominantly around the streets of Sydney, Ox has also traveled wide and far, spreading his work across a legion of walls and into

Exhibition – Jacinta Kyam – House Of Bricks – Melbourne

We love finding out about new artists, and Jacinta Kyam sure is one that we’re pretty keen on finding out even more about! We have covered a fair bit of collage in the past (obviously, one of our favourites, Phoenix, makes an appearance on here often) and we’re damn glad to see even more coming out to put on shows – this show looks fkn splendid indeed!

"Exhibition One explores the process between instinct and fine art through collage making.
Jacinta has become a collage artist, in her words, ‘by accident’. It all started as a teenager when instead of plastering her walls with posters of her favourite celebrities she would create elaborate collages on her walls with cut up magazines and bluetak (much to her mother’s delight!).

Kyam’s original collages take up to 2 months to complete. These collages are photographed, blown up and printed on metallic photographic paper. The effect is stunning. The viewer can observe the meticulous hand cut detail of the collages, viewing their sculptural detail and lucid, contrasting imagery as a photographic whole. Kyam’s works are inspired, contemporary and a refreshing take on collage. The inspiration for the collection has come from Kyam’s background in fashion and art magazines. The process of creating the imagery evolves as the pictures ‘speak’ to her.

Renowned photographer Rob Little has photographed each work. The resulting original prints are simply beautiful. The size, colour and detail – awe-inspiring.
Jacinta recalls stapling one of her teenage bedrooms together with a staple gun until it resembled somewhat of an installation with fabric billowing from the ceiling, textural fabric ‘art’ on the walls and of course, her collage which resulted in a rather unpleasant phone call from her mother when she took apart the room after Jacinta left home. It looked like someone had gone over the walls and ceiling with a sewing machine.

These instinctual beginnings have flourished into mature surrounds, where approach to the medium is the only thing that has shifted over time. From childhood to adolescence we take in an entire life, reflected through the care and detail of the assembled images. Jacinta’s work is original and like nothing else. Jacinta prefers not to see what other collage artists are doing as she feels it may taint the purity of her work which is her own and not inspired by any other artist. The inspiration comes when the pictures start coming together.

“It’s like an infant growing to full maturity, evolving and changing every step of the way”.

Yeah, we’re really liking the look of this one, so get yourself down to House Of Bricks this
Friday night to see this mad collage artist in action – colour and depth, oh my.
