The Lady and the Unicorn

Pocket notebook drawings from the rare display of this marvellous and mysterious medieval (c. 1500) suite of tapestries at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, on loan from the Museé de Cluny. I have never encountered such a soulful unicorn!

Deep Red: Hobart’s Stranger With My Face Exhibition, April 2016

Some moody phone camera documentation (my DSLR camera had just died) of the Stranger With My Face exhibition, which ran from 14-17 April 2016 as an adjunct to Tasmania’s Stranger With My Face International Film Festival. I was in Hobart covering the festival for RealTime Arts and had also been invited by festival director Briony Kidd to participate in this group show. Curator Robyn Oh did a terrific job of assembling the various works in the Festival Club (aka the Founders Room at Salamanca Arts Centre).

The exhibition took its cue from the festival, which showcases and promotes the work of women who make horror and dark genre films.

Sculpture at Scenic World

A few glimpses of this year’s Sculpture at Scenic World, an annual exhibition held in Jurassic rainforest on the floor of the Jamison Valley, Katoomba, in the Blue Mountains region of NSW. I travelled to Katoomba to cover the exhibition for the next edition of RealTime magazine, coming out on June 6.
