the blink of an eye

Belinda with works from ‘Sacred/Profane’ in the Palimpsest exhibition.

Proposing, designing, producing and hanging an art exhibition is a fraught and lengthy process. It always seems so crazy that the eventual show seems to be over in the blink of an eye. Two weeks is not long to present work that has been over three years in development. But of course it is part of a lifelong process of producing creative work and, occasionally, showing it to others in the brief opportunities that are available.
But artists today are fortunate, in that images of both the work, and of those rare exhibitions, can be shownto the world on the internet.

So – for the several billion people who did not catch Palimpsest, with my partner, Christopher Lawrie, in February this year – here’s the slideshow (click slideshow button at top right of the flickr page to start the show).

Also:
We were thrilled that our old friend and fellow Adelaidean Phil Cam (aka Dr Philip Cam, Chair of the Federation of Australasian Philosophy in Schools Associations and Adjunct Associate Professor, School of Humanities UNSW) gave a wonderful, thought-provoking talk to launch the show. It provides an excellent framing of the theme and guide to interpret the work.

Life and work in progress

It’s been quite a year, with some life/death experiences that I wouldn’t wish on anyone, but … all part of real loving, feeling, hurting life.

Now, at last to my creative life! Some recent work being developed for a proposed exhibition has me hunting through images from travelling done over the last year – see my galleries for the Grampians, Japan and Europe.

Here are a few samples of new compositions:

Sacred/profane – Avignon/Uzes (Europe)

Plenty – Natimuk (Grampians)

Wabi Sabi Hiroshima (Japan)

National Works On Paper at Mornington Peninsula Regional Art Gallery  is “one of Australia’s most prestigious awards and acquisitive exhibitions” for art created on or with paper.

It’s a total privilege to have my work The Timeless Land/Wentworth (from my series The Timeless Land) selected for the show this year.  The exhibition opens on July 16, and is open Tues-Sun until September 11.
