METAMORPHOSIS Anything But Human by Julie Clarke

The brilliant Julie Clarke has written a fascinating article titled 
METAMORPHOSIS on her blog Anything But Human

Spinner 1994

Clarke references the work of Aliey Ball (sculptor/Melbourne), Chris Barron (poet/Melbourne), Moira Corby (artist/Melbourne), Phylicia Daria (Systems Designer/USA), Bruce Dickson (artist/Melbourne), Andrew Garton (musician/Melbourne), Werner Hammerstingl (photographer/Melbourne), Clinton Hayden (photographer/Melbourne), Kyriaki Maragozidis (artist/Adelaide), Mark McDean (artist/Newcastle/Melbourne), Steven Middleton (animator/Melbourne) and Simon Park (scientist/United Kingdom).

Anything But Human is a thoughtful, charged and creative hub of information and ideas on the arts, film and theory. If you haven't already visited, I highly recommend you do. Always a fascinating read.

"Heart Shaped Box" The Exchange Exhibition

This image shows various views of "Heart Shaped Box". a current work-in-progress. 
This is one of two works that I will be exhibiting in The Exchange Exhibition.

"A big exhibition of small scale work. Taking the 'artist swap' concept one step further, Exchange features art works by approx 50 contemporary artists - each artist is contributing one piece to swap with another artist in the exhibition and another piece that will be available for purchase. Both artworks by each artist will be on display during the exhibition
A diverse range of painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, photography and more, from artists in regional and metropolitan areas of Queensland, NSW, Victoria, SA and Tasmania."

There is still some refining to do, then it will be primed and painted all over in high gloss white.
