June 23, 2019

⁣‘The ‘St Stephen’ paintings of the late 1980s provided the artist with a motif which allowed a personal vision to merge with an event of historical and mythical significance. These works are some of the very few examples of narrative painting by Shepherdson’ extract from David Burnett’s catalogue essay for ‘Marks + Moments: Paintings by Gordon Shepherdson’ Queensland Art Gallery, 1997⁣

JAMES DRINKWATER INTERVIEWED BY CHLOE MANDRYK IN NEW ISSUE OF ART ALMANAC, JUNE 2019

May 30, 2019

James Drinkwater: the sea calls me by name 30 May 2019 | Chloe Mandryk In speaking with James Drinkwater ahead of a major survey show at Newcastle Art Gallery we explore his porous approach to painting where an intriguing conceptual and material web is crafted, it’s a structure with space for transience, like a dream-catcher. His paintings possess an associative aesthetic that invites the audience to join, or complete an emotional journey. You very eloquently describe your personal relationship with painting as a ‘long eternal conversation with the past’. But, making or creating is generative, so what are you hoping…

PHILJAMES ‘THE COLA WARS’ FEATURED ON BROADSHEET MELBOURNE’S ‘IN THE GALLERIES: FIVE SHOWS TO SEE IN MAY’ BY WILL COX

May 10, 2019

The Cola Wars by Philjames Anyone who’s wandered past centuries-old masterpieces in a major art gallery and found themselves thinking about cartoons instead will feel right at home with the work of Sydney artist Philjames. This collection of paintings adorns the old with the new – or sabotages the classical and traditional with the crass and disposable, depending on your point of view. As someone who grew up with The Simpsons at home and religious imagery at school, it’s a little unsettling to see them both in the one place. And yet it makes perfect sense. So, with escalating levels of offensiveness,…

SUZANNE ARCHER’S SURVEY EXHIBITION ‘SONG OF THE CICADA’ REVIEWED IN SYDNEY MORNING HERALD BY JOHN MCDONALD

April 20, 2019

Suzanne Archer: The Song of the Cicada Published April 18, 2019 Suzanne Archer, ‘Thrumming and Drumming’ (2017) Suzanne Archer’s career as an Australian artist began in a blaze of publicity in 1969. Her first solo exhibition at Sydney’s Clune Gallery was written up in the papers, and splashed on radio and TV. It helped that Archer was young and glam, and that the local gallery scene was limited to a handful of dealers. A hip young woman creating avant-garde art made for an eye-catching story. Fifty years on, Archer has clocked up more than 40 solo shows and taken part…

DAN KYLE FEATURE BY OWEN CRAVEN REPUBLISHED IN ‘ARTIST PROFILE’ ONLINE TO COINCIDE WITH ‘BACK COUNTRY’ EXHIBITION

April 16, 2019

Dan Kyle By Owen Craven Soon after graduating from the National Art School, Dan Kyle set up home deep within the Australian bush at the foot of the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney. His paintings are translations of what he sees – the beauty, the unique forms, the colours – but also his way of reducing the density of the bush to a more approachable landscape for him to keep exploring. Back in Issue 32, 2015, Artist Profile chatted to Dan about the formal and conceptual nuances of his landscapes. You are a young painter, painting landscapes, it’s a bit…

DESTINATION / IN RESIDENCE Escape to the bush with Dan Kyle at the Nicholas Thompson Gallery WORDS Olivia Repaci     There is something so captivating about the Australian bush. Whether it’s the contrast of the white gum bark against vast shrubbery, or the intricate weaving of branches and leaves that create a labyrinth of natural universes, we’re transfixed. And evidently we’re not alone, the landscape also has a special hold over Sydney artist Dan Kyle. Graduating from the National Art School in 2010 and setting up his studio on the outskirts of Sydney’s west, Kyle creates art that captures the softer side of…
