I have been selected to exhibit some of my Moss Stencil works with a host of talented American artists for the Triangle and Amuse Boucheexhibition, curated by Stephanie Browne and Kay Ottinger. Opening this Friday, April the 5th at 8pm, 476 Jefferson Street Brooklyn, NY 11237, there will be performances from 9-10pm. The website is an artwork in itself, so I recommend you check it out here: TAB Brooklyn.
TAB presents dynamic exhibitions which intend to stimulate new pathways for the perception of the arts. TAB programs unify diverse forms of visual art, dance, performance, music, film, and interactive media into a live and audience-centric format.The partnership of Triangle and Amuse Bouche (TAB) lends energy and support to artists from diverse artistic backgrounds who make the leap to work collaboratively. The platform provides the opportunity for artists who are working with an idea, to further deepen their investigation through sharing their processes of experimentation and interpretation. By involving artists from Brooklyn, the US and abroad, it is also an agent in developing the “glocal” arts community.The exhibition methodology derives from questioning the role of audience perception. We interrogate the idea, How does an audience receive multiple artworks within one timespace?, and the subsequent ideas, How may live art forms “activate” static forms? How does painting or sculpture cohabit in the present moment along with ephemeral performance? How does the audience “perform” in an exhibition timespace?
Open from 11am-4pm, I’ll be setting up a small installation and selling a selection of prints, hope to see you there!
After a lot of running around organising in the winter chill, ‘Like’ was a massive success! If you weren’t able to make it, here’s a selection of installation shots from the show.
Tucked away throughout various Manhattan and Brooklyn locations…
The very talented Tyron Butson has written a great article about my upcoming show in New York, I’m chuffed! In case you missed it, here it is:
I’m very pleased to announce Like my first exhibition in New York!
Featuring the Moss Stencil series I developed at Arteles in September, as well as a new performance installation. Over Saturday the 16th and Sunday the 17th of February, I will create my own blanket of ‘moss’. Created out of tweet, status and Instagram sized snippets of pre-virtual media (Newspapers and Magazines) I will weave with string a carpet of news, hopes, dreams and opinions into a fabric that mimics the sphagnum moss featured in the photographic series. This body of work continues my fascination with translating the virtual world back into the real environment, and pays homage to the millions of contributions made to online social networking platforms daily.
Located at 319 Scholes in Brooklyn, the opening will be on Friday the 15th at 7pm, and the exhibition will be open from 10am-7pm Saturday 16th – Sunday 17th.
The other day I finally received my letter, I am officially a Master! My thesis will be available via UNSW online and open libraries, but I thought I ought to post it here as well.
So, without further adieu, you can view it here: Grace+ – Identifying and Exploring the Nature of Online Identities as Expressed through the Platform of Social Networking Sites.
The new addition of the Arteles Catalogue is out now, and it features an article about my practice during the studio residency right here.
Of course the best part is reading about all the other residents work, it shows the extent of the possibilities available at this amazing organisation.

I had a lovely time last Thursday at the Blake Prize Opening night, I took my partner in love, my partner in crime and one of my favourite partners in art (Will Coles). The exhibition was held at S. H. Ervin gallery, who put on a great show, and this years winners more then deserved the great prizes.
The exhibition runs until the 16th of December, but if you don’t get a chance to get over to Observatory Hill, you can view my entry in the online gallery here.
Grace + is my fictional online Social Networking Site made real. SNS can now be seen as a substitution for the tradtitional community role of the church, whereby people gather there daily to ‘worship’, gossip, share major life events and publically comment on the goings on in their community.
Tonight I attended the Artist and Collectors evening where Professor Ian Howard opened the festivities. I was glad to have the chance to take my patient model Dan Lovett – here he is being embarrassed while I take a blurry photograph of him in front of the work, bless.
