Little sneak peak of Regret is For Chemists at Paradise Hills. S
Paradise Hills is excited to present six of Tasmania’s awesome emerging talents mixed together to create a solution of pure creative chemistry. Working in painting, drawing, digital collage, sculpture, murals and installation, these six artists will be on show for three weeks in what could be one of the most exciting collaborations we have ever had at the gallery. With Jacob Leary fresh from his win of the John Fries Memorial Prize for emerging artists two weeks ago and Tom O’Hern back from his residency in Paris, all artists are now taking the trip across Bass Strait and bringing there ground breaking work to Melbourne.

Hey spungoz, Hamishi here. It’s my first day @ #theopeninghours thought I’d celebrate by curating an exciting show in Melbourne on the grey area between high + lowbrow art and the relevance of lowbrow art in a contemporary discussion.

Please join us for opening celebrations on the 27th of September at 6pm.

Curated by Hamishi

Where is the middle ground between high and lowbrow art in Australia’s regressive commercial contemporary art scene? “Sup Brow?” is an exhibition presenting an informed discussion on the relevance of “Juxtapoz Art” in contemporary art and the border between Lowbrow and Mainstream Australian painting through the lens of Australian and international painters, illustrators and mixed practice artists.

Blackartprojects present another exciting group show in Melbourne entitled “Show White”. “Show White” looks to continue the admirable exhibition history of the non-defined space with this ambitious project in spite of a somewhat regressive commercial marketplace.

Composite @ Gallery ONE THREE

Georgie Roxby Smith
Jake Stollery
Shane Basinski

Composite opens tonight at Gallery ONE THREE in the Melbourne CBD. Some impressive shows have been put on by these guys and this should be no exception.

A composite form is a mixture of two completely different materials that are usually a natural and a synthetic, merged together (although not completely) to act in concert. In this exhibition, artists Georgie Roxby Smith, Jake Stollery and Shane Basinski display work that is of a similar quality – although not completely.

Georgie Roxby Smith is an Australian visual artist working across a range of disciplines exploring new pathways between virtual and physical worlds. She received a Bachelor of Media Arts from Deakin University in 2004. Her graduate studies include a Post Graduate Diploma in Visual Arts and Master of Fine Arts from the Victorian College of the Arts. In 2010, Georgie developed her multi disciplinary work ‘Reality Bytes’ at The Watermill Center Spring Residency Program and presented the work at Rearview Gallery in Melbourne Australia as well as exhibiting at several local galleries and public screens. Georgie was also part of Linden Centre for Contemporary Art Innovators Program 2010 and Melbourne International Arts Festival including ‘Navigators’ 2006 (for which she received the Eldon and Anne Foote Trust Travel Grant), ‘John Cage’s Musicircus’ 2007 and, in 2008, contributed to ‘Longing Belonging Land’ on opening night and assisted artist Chris Doyle (US) with his ‘Ecstatic City’ installation.

As an artist, futurist and creative technologist, Jake Stollery appreciates the beauty of transition. He presents a series of work that explores the evolution of self in its interplay between organic and digital identities. He also runs Stollery, a creative start-up that specialises in fashion, music and lifestyle brands. He’s developed creative work for the likes of Myer, Nana Judy, tyDi, Regan Tamanui, Fear of Tigers, Artscrowd, Happy Lab and Peter Alexander.

Shane Basinski is a musician and sound installation artist. In his sweeping soundscapes Basinski explores the listener’s emotional involvement with various sounds of the 21st century, such as foreign conversations on a train and walking through the streets of Melbourne, with underlying base lines and guitar solos. Basinski is a master of many instruments and utilises as many of them as he possibly can to organise his compositions.
