I have had an incredibly busy start to the year. It began with a solo exhibition at the Deakin University Art Gallery at their Collins St, Docklands, Campus. That exhibition comprising of 26 ink drawings and 7 mosaics, was titled “Yolo Man and his Apocalyptic Alphabet”. I made the drawings in 2016 and the mosaics that accompanied them were made from 2016 – 2018. In 2016 I did show the drawings as a set of giclee prints and the mosaics at the Gallery of Contemporary Mosaics in Chicago, USA. The show at Deakin was the first time they have been shown exclusively.
I was also involved in a group show at the Craft and Design Centre, Canberra. This exhibition was titled TRANSITIONS. I made a series of 8 works titled “Mr Hanky Panky and His Seven Deadly Sins”. These works were well received, my “WRATH” piece was photographed by the Canberra Times and featured several times in the paper during the exhibition. I am very excited to announce that the entire collection has been bought by an art collector. It is so great that those works will stay together.
Since then I have been doing some commissions. They include a painting, commissioned by a lovely lady as her own 60th Birthday gift and works for other clients and exhibitions. Recently four limited edition prints were sent to a collector in Italy. I do ship worldwide and will pay for some of the shipping costs for my valued clients.
My studio/gallery @ 68 Patterson Rd, Bentleigh is an ever changing space. I am there most days and YOU are most welcome to visit. If you are coming a long distance its best to call the studio on 03 9557 2688 or mobile 0402 946 940 to make sure I am around.
