Margaret River Gallery Exhibition Estate 2 –21 March 2013. New works by Lauren Wilhelm. Lauren Wilhelm is a Western Australian artist who has exhibited nationally, in New York and whose recent solo shows have been sold-out. Inspired by history and man’s seeming inability to learn from it, Lauren’s paintings offer a quirky look at hubris whilst still managing to evoke a stillness and sweet melancholia. Her latest work is inspired by the idea of land ownership and territory. Dismayed by urban sprawl and large tracts of bushland she remembered as a child being carved up into souless expanses of identical rooftops, Lauren explores our preoccupation with owning a slice of earth

The WYNTER DARK GRAPHIC NOVEL APP is a whole new comic reading platform. We're planning on creating a new way to experience comic books and graphic novels without detracting from what makes them great in the first place. This isn't a motion comic or a standard comic book reader, this is a whole new way to dig into the books that will be published that allows readers to get involved and contribute in a dynamic way. This campaign is to raise the funds for us to code the platform - we have the first series ready to roll out well on the way (WYNTER DARK) but the idea will be that this becomes a platform for other books and creators to publish their work via the tablet medium. Once we have the platform ready roll we'll be soliciting from other creators to start a next generation comicbook e-publishing company.
The exhibit features a menagerie of colourful animals, armoured beasties, robots and the odd member of Daft Punk, each piece an exploration into the concepts of creativity and divinity, the journey to finally get along with oneself, and the power of inspiration.

Exhibition launch with the artists to be opened by Yin Cao Curator of Chinese Art Art Gallery of NSW. Saturday 2 February 2013 2.30-4.30 pm. Pei Pei He and Li Baoying were born in Shanghai and Beijing respectively and both had their initial art education in China. Pei Pei He settled in Melbourne and completed her Fine Art Honours degree from Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne. Li Baoying graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing and undertook postgraduate programs at COFA in Sydney. Pei Pei He is fascinated by the movement of people and traffic in urban space and the rhythm of city life while Li Baoying loves the Australian wilderness and landscape around Tasmania. Pei Pei He depicts the urban cityscape in Melbourne and Sydney through her meticulously crafted photorealistic black and white oil paintings while Li Baoying captures the wilderness landscape in Tasmania through her photography in different seasons and different times of the day. Different Worlds showcases the works of these two artists with similar background and yet with quite different perspectives on the Australian urban and wilderness landscape.
In March this year, Queen St Gallery will host a solo exhibition by established elbourne-based artist Eolo Paul Bottaro. In this his first solo exhibition in Sydney, a number of recent paintings, drawings, etchings and lithographs will be on display in this recently opened art space in the heart of Woollahra’s gallery precinct. While Bottaro’s work is widely known for its representation of Melbourne’s urban underbelly and iconic buildings such as the National Gallery of Victoria, Shrine of Remembrance, and the Royal Exhibition Building, this exhibition will mark the commencement of a series of works that introduce Sydney’s various urban environments as the stage for the dramatic figurative narratives the artist creates.
