“Till we meet again, if not in this world, in the next.” These are the heartbreaking last words of a Bendigo boy in a final letter to his mum before the young soldier was killed in action on the Western Front in WWI. Private Leslie Robins’ poignant words formed the inspiration for his great-great-nephew Andrew Harrison to compose an extraordinary contemporary classical work, If Not In This World, to be premiered at two major concerts of the same name. If Not In This World, along with another new work by Bendigo-based composer Rohan Phillips, Meditations on der Krieg, will be performed by the acclaimed Arcko Symphonic Ensemble in two powerful and emotionally-charged concerts in Bendigo on Saturday 10 November and the following day in Melbourne on Sunday 11 November, the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day.

Daniel Marzona is pleased to announce a solo exhibition with works by Jörg Gelbke. Against the background of an art world whirling ever more rapidly around itself and propagating the absolutely newest trends in an almost weekly rhythm, only to praise tomorrow the grandness of something even newer, the slowness and tenacity that is inherent in Jörg Gelbke’s work seems strangely anachronistic. @danielmarzona #danielmarzona #jörggelbke #berlinopenings #opening #exhibition #ausstellungen

Although influenced by Pop Art, with its bold, eye-catching images and impersonal approach, at the core of Ty Joseph’s work is an intrinsic desire to express individuality, elegance, and social interactions by applying symbolic overtones. Working with vivid, distinct colors on large canvases, Ty infuses his sense of identity into each of his works with signature sweeps of L-shaped patterns. When viewed from a distance, these patterns create an illusion of unity that, up on closer inspection, reveal a much more complex, multi-faceted image, much like the idea of individuality itself.
