Luise Guest Exhibition Review on Robyn Gordon - Dynamic BalanceLuise Guest
An Art Teacher in China - Blogspot
Robyn Gordon has worked with polymer clay as her medium for more than 30 years, most usually in the form of wearable pieces in which organic forms arrange themselves quite magically as body adornment. Her work is often highly decorative, yet informed by years spent observing nature, and by her fascination with nature's beauty and fragility. In this exhibition, a significant body of work, she presents these polymer clay forms, both invented and observed, against backgrounds of solid colour. I was constantly reminded of Japanese and Javanese textile designs in the interplay of form, line and colour. Indigo, rich purples and reds reveal themselves against quieter more neutral passages. In 'Silence of Space' the forms are ordered in almost totemic fashion against the black ground. The indigo colour reinforces the references to traditional textiles, to the arts of domestic life, to the culture of women....

Sexed-up ceramicsTracey Clement
Spectrum, The Sydney Morning Herald
In his solo show, Neurotica, Michael Keighery has his wicked way with bits and bobs that could have been plucked from any suburgan china cabinet. The Sydney artist transforms old favourites such as floral plates, demure statuettes of ladies in big dresses and regal Oriental gents into ceramic figurines that ooze a kitschy-cool charm tempered by the naughty edge of schoolboy humour.

TO MANNE SCHULZE, Kamahl's 1969 vinyl LP Dreams Of Love is a thing of beauty. Not for its music as such but for its aesthetic appeal.
In the name of art, Schulze took to Kamahl's records with a band saw, carved them into pieces, and reassembled them into large abstract works. An Olivia Newton-John boxed set received the same treatment, as did the Seekers' Big Hits.
Art and Climate CollideGarrett Bithell
In a new exhibition, artist Michelle Collocott confronts the realities of climate change. In an era dominated by political discourse finally raising awareness of the risks of global warming, local artist Michelle Collocott is tracing the drama of climate change in her solo exhibition at Wilson Street Gallery – Three Ponds Series C.

The Memory of Amnesia: assemblages by James Blackwell +Richard Perram
Spring 08 @Wilson Street Quarterly
I first saw James Blackwell?s work in 2003 shortly after he started working in paper and found materials in an exhibition at the Spirit Level gallery in Devonshire Street Surry Hills.
At the time I was taken by the beauty of his assemblage/collages which in their quiet intensity provided a meditation on the apparently random processes contained within nature.

Brian Johns talks to Bill BrownAn Interview
How did the boy from Parramatta land in the famous art school in East Sydney?
I think it?s a consequence of being pointed that way as a child. My early painting efforts were hung around the house and visitors seemed impressed. When I was fifteen at school we were asked to decide on our futures ? going further academically or getting a job. When it came to my turn spontaneously the words spat out, ?I am going to be an artist?.

An irreverent homage to the traditional China cabinetMichael Keighery
This exhibition explores the significance of the historical China Cabinet figurine in contemporary Western culture. Contemporary figurines can act as a tool for exploring the implications of international exchange as well as the forms and images made possible by changes in information technology, material science and industrial techniques.

In 2011 we place our confidence in the future, launching two artists whose attitude and and intellect reflect the frustration and hopes of those who must live over the next few decades with the consequences of yesterday's and today's mistakes.
