ALUN LEACH-JONES NOUMEMON BLUE IKON IN ‘PUBLIC WORKS’ BRONWYN WATSON IN ‘THE AUSTRALIAN’

May 7, 2020

Alun Leach-Jones, Noumenon XI blue ikon, 1967. Collection Benalla Art Gallery, Victoria. Gift of the Benalla Apex Club, 1967. The work can be viewed online at https://benallaartgallery.com.au/benallacollection/collection-view/1052789/ When Alun Leach-Jones, at the age of 23, decided to leave England, it was because, he said, he was feeling “hemmed in”. He was also keen to escape the possibility of an “easy, middle-class life of a provincial lawyer or doctor”. Instead he chose to emigrate to what he considered the furthest point away from his homeland — and that was Australia. He arrived in Adelaide in 1960 where, while studying at the…

GENEVIEVE FELIX REYNOLDS FEATURED ON BROADSHEET IN ‘A ROOM OF ONE’S OWN: FINDING SPACE FOR CREATIVES IN SYDNEY’ BY NICOLA HEATH

April 28, 2020

Genevieve Felix Reynolds Genevieve Felix Reynolds is a visual artist fascinated by the progression of history. Or, as she puts it, “the journey of an object from something in its original context – in a temple or somebody’s home – and how that is translated over time, breaks down and reforms through photography and through being resituated in museums and archives and books”. Reynolds works with oil and acrylic paints as well as animation, sculpture and architectural elements, incorporating classical imagery and digital components. In Health, her 2019 solo exhibition at Galerie Pompom in Chippendale, Reynolds examined the relationship between…

ELEANOR LOUISE BUTT ON ‘THE DESIGN FILES’ IN STUDIO VISIT BY SASHA GATTERMAYR

April 15, 2020

Sunshine-Tinted Paintings By Eleanor Louise Butt STUDIO VISIT In these late autumnal days heading firmly into winter, the shift between seasons is most noticeable. Daylight savings slips away, temperatures drop into distinctly icier territory, and nature’s fragility begins to flake into nothing. Eleanor Louise Butt’s paintings remind us of this seasonal shift. Her latest body of work, created whilst on residency in Cornwall, England late last year, combines a brilliant balance of bark-like textures, earthy tones and, perhaps most noticeably, deep yellows – a colour that has become a distinctive hallmark of Eleanor’s paintings over the past few years. Now…

ELEANOR LOUISE BUTT PROFILED ON A-OK

April 10, 2020

Eleanor Butt What led you to choose painting as a medium? (Or did painting choose you?) Painting is the medium that allows me to speak my own language.

I have always loved looking at paintings, and started painting with oils when I was a teenager. At art school I experimented across various modes of practice and actually left painting for a while, only to re-discover it in my…
