Highlighting Artist ~ KRISTINE BALLARD and her signature style "Fragmatism"

BY Mickie with ArtSHINE Gallery in Chippendale | 27-Apr-2017
WHAT IS FRAGMATISM? (frag • ma • tism) (Quoted the artist Kristine Ballard for the best definition below) “An artistic style based on the concept that our perceptions are often a compilation of reality and experience. What we remember is a morphed idea of the truth. Images disintegrate and fragment on the picture plane. Objects decompose and merge into one another. Colour combinations are restricted, to create an emotive response. An amalgamated approach derived from the cubists deconstruction process, the orphic explorations of the Fauves and the Nabi’s endeavour to synthesise nature and aesthetics. This practice aims to capture mood through heightened sensations of form and colour." ~ KRISTINE BALLARD #artshinegallery #fragmatism #artshineindustries

Indigenous Entrepreneurs - Injalak Ethical Art Thongs

BY Pozible | 26-Apr-2017
The coolest, hottest, most ethical thongs in Australia. Would you like to wear cool clothing and footwear with Aboriginal designs but worry about the ethics? Stop fretting and get organised to support our campaign to produce some uber-cool ethical thongs (flip-flops to you internationals). Be stylish, comfortable and have peace of mind knowing that you're doing two things at once: supporting Injalak Arts' Aboriginal artists and also Australia's most ethical social enterprise, Etiko. Three great designs to choose from. Becoming a supporter of this campaign - whether by ordering thongs or taking up another reward - will give us the necessary cash to pay the producers to make the first ever batch of these fair trade thongs specially for us + royalties for the artists. If we are not successful we can't order the thongs to be made. More information about costs of production in 'how the funds will be used' below. PS: The artists have no issue with the designs being on thongs - in fact they're thrilled.

Come wielding your instruments: Jam finale @ BSG with gesticulating street poet Christo Warner

BY Christo Warner | 26-Apr-2017
This is experimental, as all once was. Thursday 27th @ BRUNSWICK STREET GALLERY 7:30pm-9:30. An open melting-pot showcase of improvised jams. Musicians beyond genres are invited to forge a fusion with my performance poetry. Envision various configurations of musos progressing through the gallery’s zones. In the name of art, poetry, music and the yet unknown the project was sewn. This is now Stage 4/4, the culmination of the progressive “What Washes UP” project running across the last two weeks. First performed solo for contrast @ BSG. Then invited the public to participate and held two jams @ In.cube8r Gallery. Much video of the performances awaits upload! C: And now, COME. Throw your inhibitions to the wind, invite your friends, and watch or play your musical tools as we seek an imperfect symbiosis.
322 Brunswick St. Fitzroy.

Locale... and the Gesture of Return - A Group Exhibition

BY Heathcote Museum & Gallery | 23-Apr-2017
Locale showcases the artwork of Emma Jolley, Monika Lukowska, Carly Lynch, Melanie McKee, Layli Rakhsha, Rachel Salmon-Lomas, and Gemma Weston. This exhibition takes an interdisciplinary printmaking approach to address concerns faced by contemporary artists in an era of increased mobility and development of place. The artists address several significant aspects of place through their work, and recognise that the experience of dislocation, relocation, change and memory of place is common to many. Via temporal and physical explorations of place, from the site-specific to unattainable sites, the artists have used printmaking as a means of returning to place.

Le Parcours du Faubourg: Nouméa's Old Colonial Homes

BY Michael Brunott / University of Queensland | 22-Apr-2017
Today I decided to explore Nouméa’s colonial heritage by strolling along the Parcours du Faubourg. The Parcours is a walking trail which journeys past Nouméa’s oldest examples of colonial houses in the Faubourg Blanchot neighbourhood. In the early 1860’s this area was known as Artillery Valley. Colonists arriving from France to the new settlement of Fort-de-France (Nouméa) were encouraged to take root here in this small valley behind Nouméa’s city centre. At that time, an acre of land could be bought for 35 francs, and by 1871, virtually all the land surrounding the newly built Route du Port Despointes was owned by a Mr. Barthélémy Blanchot. In 1874 he advertised his plots for sale in the local paper and sold them as Faubourg Blanchot land, giving the area the name it holds today.

‘PRESENCE’ a very personal exhibition by Lucy Lucy at Besser Space - opening Friday 28 April 2017

BY Sarah Guppy - This Much Talent | 19-Apr-2017
The body of work seeks to reflect our ability to be here, now and real. The portraits capture human tendency to obsess about future, past or their perception of themselves. The concealing masks reflect the idea that rarely oneself is entirely present or true. The ever evolving façade of charm can subtly fool us. This veneer of charm can shift from one person to another, from place to place, hiding a person’s clear soul or real persona. The delicate filters mislead gently the inward and outward perception.
