Recently finished a commission piece for HPCA and Procare Mental Health Services. Commissioned by the committee The Pink Frangipani Ball, which is intended to be auctioned or sold, to further support Procare.
The Pink Frangipani Ball is a bi-annual event started by Andrea Rufo to honour the memory of his wife Sandra. Sandra passed away due to breast cancer in 2005. Over the years the ball has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support breast cancer awareness, counselling, treatment and research. The ball’s committee also shares money raised among other local charity organisations, including Procare Mental Health Services.

As We All Play Parts of Tomorrow Extended

By |2021-02-24T16:24:03+11:00June 16th, 2020|Art, Exhibition, Painting|

Wow! What a reception! Due to popular demand Blackstone gallery have decided to extend my exhibition all the way through to the 12th July. Thank you!

Opening day/night, while a bit different than usual was a massive success. We extended the usual opening reception hours from two to four, with allocated time slots for people to come through and view the artworks with everyone sticking to strict Covid Health Regulations. We filled up all the allocated time slots, and more people emailing through asking to come for a look, and based on sales through out the opening the gallery decided to extend the show for another 2 weeks.

Hope you can make it.

The Nimrods Virtual Walk Through

By |2021-02-24T16:23:22+11:00June 13th, 2020|Art, Exhibition, Painting, Video|

A series or portraits based on songs by Green Day for the exhibition “As We All Play Parts Of Tomorrow”

For this series, I wanted to create a small gang of misfits based around songs by Green Day. Green Day have always been a huge influence on me and one fo my favourite bands through out the 90’s. I’d die my hair the same as Billie Joe on a regular occasions much to the dislike of my parents and teachers. So for this series of 12, I scoured through Green Day’s catalogue, listening to everything old and new in the studio, it was a fun experience to create these figures based solely on one song each. Each art work is mixed media on canvas, and just under 35 cm x 35 cm.

Here’s a virtual walk through of the series that will be shown within my exhibition “As We All Play Parts Of Tomorrow” in an adjoining room with a small speaker playing the 12 Green Day songs that inspired each work playing on loop.

As We All Play Parts Of Tomorrow, Virtual Walk Through

By |2021-02-24T16:27:10+11:00June 12th, 2020|Art, Exhibition, Painting, Video|

As We All Play Parts Of Tomorrow – A virtual walk through.

Just after hanging As We All Play Parts Of Tomorrow, and due to the ongoing pandemic, I thought it would be a good idea to do a virtual walk through of the exhibition. I knew that capacity was limited and that friends and family would not be able to make to the show in person. So we thought we try to capture it and make it as authentic as possible.  Also some works have changed since my initial preview and the addition of seven smaller artworks. Josh from Bar TV, who also happens to be a great mate of mine, was on hand to help and film the walk through.

Exhibition open June 13th – 27th at Blackstone Gallery, Newcastle.
