PHILJAMES EXHIBITON WITH POLLY BORLAND PREVIEWED IN ISSUE 97 OF ‘ART COLLECTOR’ AND FEATURED ON COVER

July 14, 2021

A truly unique collaboration, Philjames and Polly Borland’s forthcoming show is an experimentation in photography and paint­ing that challenges the potential of both mediums. “I approached Polly to see if she’d be interested in doing a full collaborative show,” says Philjames, “and as luck would have it she was super keen and suggested looking at the archives of her Morph series of works.” The resulting works manifest in dark yet playful interrogations of both artist’s psyches. The physicality and tangibility of Borland’s contorted bodies are transformed into grotesque subjects insatiable for our gaze. Borland is represented by Sullivan+Strumpf, Sydney.

Philjames is a finalist in the Wynne Prize 2021 at the Art Gallery of New South Wales . Philjames Spun idol machined polystyrene, polyurethane and automotive paint 110 x 65 x 65 cm . “Spun idol is inspired by Renato Bertelli’s 1933 ceramic bust of the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, Continuous profile (Head of Mussolini) Profilo continuo (Testa di Mussolini). It stands as a pop cultural sentinel, omnipresent and ever watching. Like the monuments to devotion unearthed from ages past, I imagine it to be a speculative future historical relic to be discovered, or a monolith yet to be erected;…

Australia’s oldest artist remains at the canvas, reaching a century By John McDonald April 8, 2021 — 5.00am Australia’s oldest working artist, Guy Warren, is getting tired of being asked: “What’s the secret of a long life?” His answer is very simple: “You just have to keep living.” When Warren gets down to detail he says it’s a matter of “good genes, good luck and a whiskey every night”. Beyond that he doesn’t know what on earth he did to find himself turning 100. As we go deeper into the subject it’s agreed the two golden rules might be: “Don’t sit…

WENDY STAVRIANOS FEATURE BY SASHA GRISHIN IN ISSUE 54 OF ‘ARTIST PROFILE’

April 10, 2021

Wendy Stavrianos: Paintings from a room Wendy Stavrianos has a distinctive artistic vision – an artistic personality that is authentic, unique and identifiable from twenty paces and one that is impossible to confuse with the work of any other artist. Her art is deeply autobiographic and consists of symbols and motifs that she has gathered over a lifetime and, with her guidance, it is sometimes possible to decipher the etymology of some of her symbols. However, her art is not illustrative of a personal narrative but alludes to broad, universal themes. As one of her favourite writers, Jorge Luis Borges,…
