Will ‘o the wisp

BY Mickie with ArtSHINE Gallery | 04-Dec-2017
I am a NZ artist who has called Sydney home since 2003 after living in the UK for 14 years. You may be familiar with my still life images: flora and fauna viewed and grown in NSW Australia with more than a hint of chinoiserie. My work could be interpreted as purely decorative. By using allusion and symbolism, I weave stories into my work based on my experiences as trans-racial, Asian adoptee: joyful and chaotic assemblage of blooms and fruit displayed with a collection of ceramics from anywhere and everywhere but with a narrative that draws the viewer in for a second look. The result is a collection of pictures combining unexpected elements to create strangely familiar images. There are stories to each of my works that lift them from the purely decorative into a narrative piec

ALL IS CALM - A CHRISTMAS PRODUCTION

BY Promise Adelaide | 27-Nov-2017
The Christmas Truce was an extraordinary event that took place in 1914, the first year of the war, and was never repeated. Thousands of men put down their guns and left their trenches to meet their enemies in No Man’s Land. They exchanged gifts of tobacco, rum and chocolates; even photographs of loved ones. They sang songs, played a game of soccer, and buried each other’s dead. Upon orders from above, they eventually returned to their trenches and re-instigated a war that would last four more years. All is Calm is a musical production with an entirely male cast who tell the story of the 1914 Christmas Truce through the words from letters and poems of the soldiers and through the a cappella harmonies of the Christmas songs they sung.

Curator: Javid Ramezani; Art Research PhD., Tandis Art Magazine – Online Manager. An Art Critique written by Masoud Sadedin. Translated from Persian to English by Hamed Z. Qadim. Portrait, Painter Identity Mirror: What is in the mind of painter as he steps into his workshop? That is the question, not only the audience bear in mind, but also mostly painters are engaged to before entering their own workshop. Probably, the challenge is diverse as much as the number of the painters and each challenge in its very own leads into a new unique concept for painting. Otherwise, not only the painting but any other artwork driven by previous concepts and perceptions is sentenced to death and the artist is the executer.
