Earlier this month, I had a teeny tiny two-dimensional art piece exhibited in a group show put on by Brisbane gallery/art space the Wandering Room. The exhibition aptly titled 'Closer' presented viewers with a diverse array of works all made and produced within the scale requirements of 8 x 8 x 8 cm. What I like about the concept behind this exhibition is that it does not attempt to be loud and obnoxious. Sometimes proposing 'large scale' projects can take you away more from the glowing, nucleic idea in the centre. The accentuation of scale at the tiny end of the spectrum spurs on a kind of 'stopped in your tracks' or 'did I just see that?'moment. Which is what I love about Slinkachu's work for example. In 'Closer' my artwork titled An Accomplished Woman (Apparently) was installed in what appears to be the down stairs living room perhaps...lovely! See for yourself right here

Heard of Semi-Permanent? With the annual art/design convention extravaganza now spurring on various sideline events, this year I've made the bill for one of the Brisbane sideshows. Run through ETCC and funded by Creative Commons and the Australia Council for the Arts, this show is all about the creative remix. We know a remix in the context of music, but what if that idea was translated to artwork and other cross disciplinary creative mediums? Well if you want to see some fresh and funky outcomes of this progressive and experimental idea, head to the Shooting Gallery
The ETTC show installed at the Shooting Gallery, is up and running for three weeks before the works are subsequently passed on to the selected Melbourne artists for remixing. So if you're swanning about the CBD looking for some visual stimulation and cultural refreshing, walk 10mins up from Central Station (up Creek St into Spring Hill) and turn left into Bowen Street.
