My video, Blue, is a 10-minute transition from one kind of sky to another; from afternoon sky to approaching bushfire. The transition is played out artificially in colour and sound where the colour blue is used as a “palette” and sound moves from the bush to fire. The slow transition reflects the ambiguous nature of approaching disaster inherent from the isolated perspective of single houses in rural properties. My personal experience of approaching fires contributes to the feeling evoked in this work. The purpose of the work is to open up the feeling to audiences that have not experienced this effect in real life. So, naturally, for those who have been in this situation, the video will be uncomfortable but for those who haven’t perhaps this representation helps understand the experience.

Imperceptible Resistances

Modern Art Projects, Blue Mountains, Everglades Gallery, Leura, curated by Lizzie Marshall, 2018.

Imperceptible resistances, curated by Lizzy Marshall, featured the work of 17 MAPBM artists - Vivienne Dadour, Frank Davey and Tess Rappa, Fiona Davies, Beata Geyer, Anne Graham, Danica Knezevic, Tom Loveday, Fleur MacDonald, Peachey & Mosig, Sean O'Keeffe, Naomi Oliver, Ebony Secombe, Rebecca Waterstone and Gianni Wise. The exhibition focused on the subversive layers of resilience in human beings, under the pressure of the imperceptible compromises of today’s networked society.

“The MAPBM artists respond to the site and wider theoretical concerns to explore their role in networked systems where they effect change through resistance.”

I can (Sing) Paint a Rainbow

Hawkesbury Regional Gallery 2017

Liam Benson, Anna Carey, Rosie Deacon, Anne Macdonald, Rachel Timmins, Tom Loveday,

I can see paint a rainbow explores the use and effect of colour; from the intellectual to the playful in contemporary Art.  Art speaks to us in so many different ways, because its speaks to each of us individually in the act of looking and engaging. It may be accompanied by words and ideas from another, the artist, a curator or critic. But ultimately we will find our own meaning in the act of experiencing and surrendering.

We may find connection in an image or representation that is immediately recognisable or something unfamiliar that resonates and it is often the way an artist use colour, a purposeful choice of hue or shade that will evoke that intimate connection.

Colour is extraordinarily emotive.

The artist in I can sing paint a rainbow, use colour to explore identity, both collective and individual; social, cultural, sexual;  the transience of childhood, connection to memory and place, personal obsession and Australian kitsch and a memorial to a cultures genocide.

The Questions I Didn't Ask is a confession. At the many conferences and public talks by international luminaries i have attended I usually took copious notes. In those notes, there are questions that I was either too lazy, too tired or too insecure to ask of the speaker. In this confession, I recite those questions, noting the speaker and the topic.
