Recently(Last Friday), Boom Gallery opened their latest show ‘Big Boom‘. It coincided with the galleries expansion which sees the gallery nearly double in size…which is massive thing for Geelong, being that the gallery was already fairly large! The Big Boom exhibition was a group show with about twenty artists work on show including; Jeff Raglus, Tibor Novak, Anita Iacovella and many more. So although eclectic, the show is bound to have something that will cater to everyones tastes.

It runs till the 14th Sept, so pop in and have a look if you want to see some fresh art.

Boom Gallery Hours are 9 – 4pm Wed – Sat – 11 Rutland Street Geelong

Below is one of the works that I had in the exhibition. I decided to use the fact that I only had to put in a few works to be a little experimental and put in some straight stencil works that were stripped right back to give a design edge to them. A bit different and less busy than my usual work.

In other news…

I have been back painting more little bits and pieces at the Eureka, I have been doing a bit of graphic design for ‘Future Digitals’ a new media concept/group starting in the northern suburbs/Cloverdale. As well as all this, I am also currently working on a large scale paste-up collaboration with Darren Wescomb as a feature for the upcoming Geelong Fringe Festival (Pictures coming soon!).

Well the exhibition is now up on the walls at Boom Gallery, opening night is over and I can relax again for a little while. All tolled up I made about 34 paintings in just over two months…so it has been busy times in the studio. The opening night got over a hundred peeps through the door and at last count after the first week on the wall I have sold 21 paintings! Woo Hoo!!

It all seemed to just fall into place perfectly which is lucky, with even the exhibition catalogues getting delivered only a few hours before the actual opening(Slightly stressful). Anyway, The response has been awesome and I can happily say it is the most consistent exhibition I have done to date.

Below are a few pix of the gallery.

And in other recent news, I have done a small two-day artist residency out at Cloverdale Community Centre, with fellow artist David Dellafiora called Neighbourhood Press. We worked with participants at the centre to create small artists books and zines for the little libraries project.

Below are a couple of images of books made during the residency.

Another project just finished last week was a commission for a Melbourne nightclub to create two space invaders masks. I called in the assistance Jo Kemerer to create them as she has more experience with sculpture…and I must say we were very pleased with the finished results.

Now for a well earned break for a few days before I get into the next lot of projects.

Enjoy!
