Mixed media prints by Annie Keil-Taggart detail the physical, spiritual and psychological journey she has undertaken. From leaving the inspired spaces of Warrendyte in 2000 travelling to home country in the Kimberley and returning.
The somewhat surreal acrylic paintings of Jennifer Powell express a journey of a different kind. They are images of transit through her complex inner world.

Monstrous Sublime,

Artists: Dina Mittas, Vanessa Law, Atlanta Bell, Pairaj Srisuphanraj. Group exhibition of mixed-media art exploring the monstrous aspect of the
sublime in various contexts. Opening will be Friday 6th October, 6-9pm. Tues to Sun 12 am to 6 pm. Info 0405570800

"The "monster", it could be said, is the part of a system of order that
threatens to overtake the whole order from within : a cancer cell, a
nightmare, an act of terrorism, a way of seeing.   Monsters, as liminal
creatures, thus take us to the borderland of the sublime where the
beautiful verges on the terrible; the creative verges on the destructive.
Like the sublime and abject moment which gives us a heightened state of
existence in the same motion as it threatens us with dissolution, at the
heart of the monster is this calling of the human into question. The
social organism purges itself of monsters like a cat vomiting up a
fur-ball that will only grow back.  It realizes deep down, that what it is
looking at is its own reflection in the abject waste of the monster ; it
realizes what it is experiencing is its own self-expulsion in the
potential for unruly, destructive growth, that the monster is.  In 'The
Monstrous Sublime', a cross-media group of artists play with ideas of the
monster in contemporary life. "

Australian artist Benjamin Charles Paulsen has been involved with many exhibitions and projects including the Hobart Fringe Festival as well as several collaborative events with reputable Queensland artists.  In 2001 Benjamin traveled to Hong Kong for his first international exhibition at Gallery Opus (now Red Door Fine Art).  Benjamin’s works were again shown in Hong Kong at Meli Melo Living Arts Café (2002) along with French artists Sylviene Pelletier and Fenjan.

Benjamin’s ‘Strip Paintings’ (framed in shadowboxes) are rugged Australian landscapes as seen from the visor of Ned Kelly.
‘Monsoon Works on Paper’ are a dynamic use of acrylic, gold leaf, tar and shellac….

“Before the rain, before the rain when sound moved in ripples, through the wet air.  Before the rain when the heat would draw out bloody murder of the unforgiving firmament.  With the first drops of rain, hitching a ride with the clouds as black as pitch, my spirit came to quicken in my small floating form….”

(Extract from “Monsoon” 1999)

Artist Statement

VANITAS
All the world’s a stage
And men and women merely players
They have their exits and entrances

 

The Dutch 17th century Vanitas ‑paintings were primarily still‑lifes, quite often incorporating bones, that is skulls and such, dead insects even. These allegories served to remind the living not to get too comfortable ‑ that is attached to luxuries and wealth, as, just as with a bowl of fruit or vase flowers, temporality, decay, was just around the corner, and so too this mortal flesh.

My intention in this Vanitas show however is to present, through portraiture, a more uplifting view to Vanitas this life in the real world.  I  havedepicted people in their diverse ages and stages of life. Yes there is an end to life but lets embrace each moment with wonder.

I have used the flower motif as metaphor and individual portraits representational of humanity, that is humanness. Flowers in their beauty, bud, flourish and decline. so too with we humans.

Flowers express joy through beauty, humankind express their experiences, life's challenges and victories in their faces and although the quote 'vanity of vanities, all is vanity' (Ecclesiastes), is intended to remind us that life is but a transient passing show, there is contained within these moments in time, the splendour and privilege of our participation.
