Two Septics Exhibition

An installation shot of  Rick Clise setting up his two sculptures for our exhibition Two Septics which is 2011 SALA festival. This year  I’m showing with a fellow American artist, at Scammell’s auction house. For me this choice of location of this exhibition is especially relevant, since in my work I am reusing discarded materials,  and showing an auction house, that is reselling items.

Bowerbird Bazaar

I just got an email reminding me that Bowerbird Bazaar is on this weekend. It is this great bazaar that showcases local and interstate designer, craftspeople, and artist.   I always see something, and sometimes too many things.  The last thing I should be doing at the moment is more shopping, since I  just got back from doing too much shopping in Melbourne.    This time I'll just have some restraint and just have a look around.  Sounds like a good excuse to just try a local beer, the Brew Boys will be there and they make some tasty brews, while I look. 

Some of the designers/makers:


Queen's Theatre, Playhouse Lane, Adelaide.      
Fri 6th 4 – 9pm
Sat 7th 10 – 5pm
Sun 8th 10 – 4pm

Entry Fee:

As a photographer by training and someone who loves to find new uses from old items,  I was very interested to learn about Re:vision.   South Australian artist, Craig Arnold, has been making cuffs from discarded camera parts.   Some of his work is currently on display at the Adelaide Town Hall until June 12th, 2011. 

You can see more of his work at:

Launch of my new artist website

In the past I have always used dreamweaver to design my websites,  but I thought it might be easier to update using wordpress.   So over the past couple of weeks I have taught myself to use wordpress and a little bit about HTML.   I have just finished redesigning and updating my website.  Check out images of my new work, old work, and read about my artist rational behind each project.

Metropolis with a live score by The New Pollutants

A 2010 digital remastered version of the historic 1927 film Metropolis is screening this Sat. March 5th with a live score from the local group The New Pollutants as part of the Adelaide Film Festival.   This will be screening of the most complete film to date with an extra 25 minutes of footage found in Argentinean in 2008.   Should be amazing.
