August 11, 2018

Five on Five: Kylie Banyard on Dana Schutz’s Breastfeeding In this first series of Five on Five we’re asking five painters to speak about a painting that has influenced, inspired or resonated with them.

RHYS LEE EXHIBITION ‘WHISTLE WORLD’ PREVIEWED IN VAULT ART MAGAZINE

August 10, 2018

Queensland College of Art graduate Rhys Lee’s latest exhibition at Nicholas Thompson Gallery follows on from a sprawling exhibition he staged there in 2017, entitled 10 Paintings and 100 Drawings. This 2018 iteration is considerably smaller in scale. Whistle Work is made up of only nine medium to large paintings, but it takes off from where the artist left off. Lee is a prolific painter; his works might loosely be described as portraiture but they’re not really like any portraiture you have seen before. They nearly always include a face or the suggestion of a face; according to Thompson, “Lee considers this as…

AMBER WALLIS AT MELBOURNE ART FAIR PREVIEWED IN ‘VAULT’

August 6, 2018

For Nicholas Thompson, Melbourne Art Fair represents a new commitment to a long-held curatorial vision: to give a single artist a platform to explore a distinct body of ideas. Although the group presentation, along with the VIP lounge, has become part of the lingua franca of art fair culture, Thompson believes that a solo exhibition can give viewers an insight into the inner workings of an art gallery. “Art fairs are so important – they’re how you reach people who may not feel the pressure to go to art galleries,” he says. “At Melbourne Art Fair, I hope to introduce…

SUZANNE ARCHER IN JOHN MCDONALD’S REVIEW OF RAW WEDDERBURN IN THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

July 10, 2018

Survey of work from one of Sydney’s most notable artists’ colony By John McDonald There is no fixed definition of an “artists’ colony” although there are numerous examples spread across the globe. Some are run like businesses, others are no more than clusters of like-minded bohemians. The prototype of the modern artists’ colony is probably Worpswede​, 28 kilometres from Bremen in northern Germany, which has been a haven for creative types since the 1880s. Australia’s best established example is Montsalvat​ on the outskirts of Melbourne, started by Justus Jorgensen in 1934. Second in line is Dunmoochin​, at Cottles Bridge, 50 kilometres…
