New Art Awards 2012 Project of the month December - Ocean Patriot by Bridgit Thomas

BY New Art Awards 2012 | 03-Jan-2013

The continuing maritime traffic on the bay flows into my drawings and watercolors and these recent works consists of transporters and oil rigs which glide down the bay without fanfare or fuss. They are in unrecognizable forms with massive cargo and are surreal in their size and dimensions. They dominate the landscape and fill up the sky. I marvel at these overwhelming constructions and complex infrastructures and am lured into this intense detail of metal madness. In my drawings I am trying to make relevance of all the confusion & chaos that surrounds these seemingly impossible maneuvers.

‘The Woods’ begins with a sprightly, wordless chant before retreating into a spare and stately mid-section, Kranz coaxing out gorgeous hooks over a pared back arrangement that builds to a luminous finale. It’s set against accidents of imprecision, strange beauty, and the kind of ineffable sounds only stumbled across in analog terrain.

Andrew Wurster Melbourne Fundrasing

BY Andrew Wurster | 17-Dec-2012

This exhibition is capturing Melbourne at a time when it has been undergoing more change than it has for most of it's history. The rich architectural & multicultural heritage of Melbourne has changed drastically in the past dozen or so years. The city has become much more densely populated that it ever has been before, there has been many more tall buildings constructed which has changed the lifestyle of people and the atmosphere in the city. In this collection I reference the cities history and contrast it with what has been created, I find the conversation between the Victorian architecture and atmosphere and the the turn of the millenium feeling an interesting relationship.
