Exhibition – Cam Scale – Iron Oxied – Sydney

This week, Melbourne artist Cam Scale hits one of Sydneys coolest galleries, The Tate, for his solo show “Iron Oxied”.

Iron Oxied will be a grand exhibition of small works on found objects, with Scale gathering a whole bunch of unique, and ohhh, mildly familiar, metal canvases on which he’s applied his more than sufficient skills.

As Scale says, the show will be “Exploring the elements around us, our human interaction with nature and existence within the universe.” Take a look at a couple of the process shots below …

Event – Drewfunk Open Studio – Melbourne

Well, it’s always a little sad seeing an artist head off from the ‘burn on new adventures, but when its someone like Drewfunk its even more so! Drewfunk has been such a stalwart in the Melbourne art scene for so long that it’ll be hard to imagine not bumping into him all the time at Blender (or Workshop, ha!) but he’s heading off up to Sydney for a change of pace, and in celebration of his time here and to new beginnings he’ll be having an open studio, with a bunch of artwork up for grabs and a bit of a bbq sendoff.

“Some of new and old unseen work will be available, also some prints, books and one off drawings.

I’ve been in Melbourne since early 2006, Its time for a change. Moving to Sydney on the 30th of March. Come by for a catchup. DJ’s and BBQ will be organized too. After party starts from 5 – 10pm. (BYO Drinks) ”

From me, on a personal note, Drew – you’ll be missed bro – hope you have all the luck in the world up in Sydney, and in the meantime, see you Saturday!!

Head down to Blender to celebrate with the man himself this weekend, and maybe even pick up some mad Drewfunk bargains!

The whole idea behind Trespassing looks grand. A new series of documentary photography and video that aims to “See what the graffiti artist sees”, Trespassing will be opening up in Sydney tomorrow night at The Tate.

As big believers in the documentation of the graffiti and street art cultures, Trespassing is a welcome addition to the many paintspotting and documentation initiatives around the world. Focusing on the underground rail systems, this new addition to the documentation of the culture is more than welcome.

Some of the photos and video previews look pretty grand, as you can see below.

The website itself is pretty great too, and it looks likie these guys are in it for the long haul to capture as much as they can – theres more info on the whole project, as well as prints and other stuff - so go and take a look at the site.

Adnate, god damn. There is a reason why the man is one of our favourite artists, and why he is sought out by so many to put paint up on their walls – all you need to know as to why this is so is, to watch this video.

Another awesome video, again, by Michael Danischewski – with the assistance of Ken Walsh producing, motion control video capture from Syrp and beats by Temple Step.

Snapshots – Alexandra Lederman – LandEscapes @ House of Bricks

Last weekend ex-Sydney and newly minted Melbourne artist Alexandra Lederman opened up her first solo show here in Collingwood, with LandEscapes. With playful abstractions juxtaposed with imaginative landscapes, this was a great showing by an emerging artist whose work we are particularly keen to follow!

Big thanks to David Russell for all the shots, and congrats to Alexandra on her first Melbourne show!

Exhibition – Stormie Mills – A Fish Tale – Sydney

Once again Stormie Mills hits the wonderful Friends Of Leon gallery in Sydney, and this time he’s introducing a new element to his beautiful character work – which, I have to say, I’m kind really intrigued about – fish rule.

"Stormie Mills continue to explore the fragility of the human condition and how in spite of the many challenges that life presents people continue to rise above adversity. The body of work created for A Fish Tale tells the story of a man that lives with his fish based on the writings of filmmaker Mark Strong who, was inspired by Stormie’s work "I miss my friend I want him back" painted in 2008 for his solo exhibition loss + endings = fish.
 
A Fish Tale is a series of eleven works through which Stormie tells the story. Stormie said, "I am always fascinated by people’s reaction to my work and was quite taken by Mark’s response to my characters. His story really captures the sentiment of my work and it’s been really rewarding to depict this story for this show."
 
Stormie has long included the symbol of a fish in his work as a symbol of the fragility of life. A goldfish is often given to children as their first pet and it is through this process of looking after this fish that children are confronted with death at the passing of their pet. It is often the first time that children are confronted by death and the idea that everything comes to an end.
 
For Stormie these golden creatures stand out amongst his film noir restricted palette of black, grey and white as a celebration of life and at the same time, a reminder that we are all easily broken."

Exhibition – Northern Exposure – aMBUSH Gallery – Sydney

So many good things coming out of Queensland these days, and this time a whole bunch of artists are making their way down to Sydney to display their work at the infamous aMBUSH Gallery.

“So often characterised by syrupy heat and tropical vistas, Queensland shows its more pensive side with the launch of Northern Exposure, an exhibition of works by some of the state’s most prolific and provocative artists.

Launching at aMBUSH Gallery on Friday 22 November from 7-9pm, Northern Exposure will bring the varied insights and aesthetics of Asio, Benjamin Reeve, Cezary Stulgis, Fintan Magee, Gimiks Born, Guido van Helten, Gus Eagleton, Lee Harnden and Shida to Sydney’s contemporary art audiences and shed light on a more serious side of Queensland culture.

Delving into concepts ranging from the brutality of Queensland’s hip-hop community to haunting anatomical explorations and the changing face of an increasingly multicultural population, Northern Exposure is a captivating cross-section of influences, inspirations and insights of the artists born and bred in our country’s sunshine state.

Northern Exposure is proudly supported by aMBUSH Gallery, Stone & Wood Brewing, Ironlak and INFX. The Veggie Patch Van food truck will be serving snacks on the opening night.”

Check out this rad video preview of the show as well …
