Anybody who knows me knows that I love James Bond.  So when Alister Karl asked me to join him and a band of other double-ohs in creating Bond inspired work for the Melbourne Fringe Festival naturally I donned my yellow and red gear and ski'd off a cliff with excitement.

The show, titled Bondsong opens this Friday at Brunswick Arts. Each artist was asked to chose a Bond-esque song and imagine a Bond film to go with it. I chose Cat People by Moroder/Bowie and have made a few fun new props for my dream film - which sees the return of George Lazenby to the role. 

On Her Majesty's Secret Service this time around we have Genevieve Piko, The Chaotic Order, Alister Karl, Max Piantoni, Monique Barnett, Ive Sorocuk, The Dark Carnival Dolls & Jenna Corcoran and Jamie Rawls. Truly A View To A Kill!!

Details:

  • Opening 27th September 6 to 9pm
  • Running 28th September to 6th October
  • Open 2 - 6  Thursday & Friday
  • Open 12 - 5 Saturday & Sunday
  • At Brunswick Arts Space
  • 2a Little Bresse St Brunswick

I hope to see you there! In the meantime, let's sit back and enjoy the best Bond Song of them all:

NOBODY DOES IT BETTER!

Sadly it’s over! Thanks to everyone who came along to see The Descent of the Dodo in First & Last at the Counihan Gallery… All six hundred and sixty six of you!

I can’t emphasise enough how much of a treat it was to be in this show! It was especially wonderful to have the opportunity to show work with my fellow Brunswick Arts committee members. When we get together it’s usually to discuss the work of others - so you can imagine how much of a thrill it was to work together on our own project. Such a delightful bunch with varied - but surprisingly complimentary - practices! I encourage you to keep up to date with  Jenna Corcoran, Alister Karl, Carmen Reid, Adele Smith, Ive Sorocuk, and John Stevens.

Adding yet more delightfulness to the delight was the fact that we were sharing the Counihan with Melanie Jayne Taylor whose show A Room For Ordering Memories was truly enchanting.

The Counihan is a really beautiful gallery, top-notch, it was a true pleasure working with everyone there. I cannot thank them enough for having me!

Before I rush on to the next big thing (Pokemon, or Tazos, or something) here are a few collected tidbits regarding First & Last:

Brunswick Arts

I’ve recently joined the committee at Brunswick Arts, a really beautiful gallery just off Sydney Road. Those of you who attended ‘Launch’ (The Giraffe Show) will know it.
