Now I can show you a page about me and my scanner camera projects that I’ve been working on for over 12 years between other projects. More stuff coming on the scanner soon but for now I am so pleased to be in this book published by Ilex and the Tate, authored by Lorna Yabsley.
All my UK friends – go to the Tate and look at it in person – I’m on page 108.

I’m working on the hardware side of things these days but you can see more stuff at scannercamera.wordpress.com

Banyule Award for Works on Paper 2019

I have this work in the Banyule Award for Works on Paper show opening Wednesday 28th August, 2019.

Fortune Teller #1 (Iceberg), 2019. folded archival inkjet print on paper, artist’s proof. 

This work is a test piece utilising the schoolyard divination technique of the “fortune teller”, a piece of paper folded in a specific order that can be manipulated to reach a conclusion about the users future.  Icebergs are literally on the threshold of change as rates of melting increase and icebergs are found drifting further afield and earlier than in previous seasons.

Designed not to be opened, this “fortune teller” becomes a sculptural form at this larger than usual scale. The viewer cannot actually determine an outcome but can only see hints of possible futures through the folds. The various flaps depict icebergs slowly melting in their natural habitat while the inner, un-viewable, layer depicts a vast dark endless ocean.

The Banyule Award for Works on Paper is awarded biennially to an outstanding contemporary work on paper. It is open to all Australian artists. The award is an acquisitive prize, with the winning artwork entered into the Banyule Art Collection.

Artists are invited to respond to a theme, and can submit work in any medium, as long as it is made on, or with paper paper.

This is a selective process, with the finalists’ exhibition held at Hatch Contemporary Artspace, Ivanhoe. We received an overwhelming 439 entries to the 2019 Banyule Award for Works on Paper.

 

New Book Out Now

Photographic works based on the Strange Loop concept of working ones way through a seemingly hierarchical structure giving the impression of moving forward only to end up back where you started thus forming a Strange Loop. These works are about the strange landscape of Iceland, being stuck, but with a great sense of momentum occurring at the same time. Part biographical, the works represent my own Strange Loop of returning to Iceland in the exact opposite order from arriving there 3 years previously, and the events that occurred in between including losing all my digital data and all the images I had spent 3 months making thus being back at the start of a very strange loop.

Hardcover, 100 pages, colour.

AUD $110 / GBP £65 / USD $80 approx.
