Monochrome images

Starting on some new ideas - must be the whiff of spring in the air.... stay tuned....

Artisan Books

There is a display of artists books at Artisan Books in Gertrude St.
The exhibition is called OPUS.
Here are the details:

I have put in a concertina book titled 'A woman's work is never done' - on the theme of work.
One side is images of clothes - the other side is pages from Mrs Beeton's Book of Household management.

Frans Art 2011

I have completed 3 works (below) for the Frans Art fundraiser.

Frans  is an organisation that cares for people with disabilities. 
FRANS provides 30 x 40 cm blank canvases and contributors work on them and submit their works anonymously (they are displayed with no attribution - they are signed on the back). This means that  in the words of the organisors...
each piece is judged on its artistic merit and allows art lovers and investors the wonderful possibility of purchasing a bargain that they will truly enjoy."

Last year’s high profile exhibitors included Archibald Prize winner Euan Macleod, Mambo artist Reg Mombasa and contemporary artists Lindy Lee and Jenny Orchard.
The show is from Sept 28th to )ct 1 - but the works have to be sent to Sydney and the exhibition hung, so Ihave completed them this week so they are dry and ready to pack up and ship.
The forst 2 are mixed media, and the third is in oil.

Collograph plates for artist book

Street Art Fairfield

In Duncan St  - I see this every time I go to the shops.

More street art

In Fitzroy these were in an alcove with a light to illuminate it


 And a wall nearby

Hosier Lane

Usually I do not post images of street art because it is someone else's art. But I could not resist the humour of some of the images in Hosier Lane.
