The Post Post 2.0: on the move

August 24, 2012

1

Well, the poor old Post Post has been languishing. Turns out those pesky weekly deadlines are good for something besides getting paid…. They make you sit down at the computer and do the work. But now that I have finally joined the i-phone revolution (if not the generation) I’ve decided to make The Post Post […]

A Tale of Two Cities

July 4, 2012

There is nothing quite so irritating for an artist as being told that your work reminds somebody of a piece by someone else. Happily, no one did say to me that my recent project, Plastic City, bears a striking resemblance to the current exhibition by Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan. I had to tell myself. To […]

Art at the Coalface of Consumerism

Ah, the annual art drought. So little to see and even less to say. But it’s March already. Time to get back to work even if it is a little post the event…. post even for The Post Post. Ironically, or perhaps completely appropriately given the fact that it was January and Sydney-siders one and […]

And […]

  A pleasant surprise. What a nice way to start the new year of art! If low expectations are the key to satisfying exhibition viewing, then no expectations are even better! I have to admit, I wasn’t even thinking about art when I went to White Rabbit recently, I was just trying to escape the […]

Janet Tavener: Out of the Mould

October 3, 2010

If, as the old saying goes, “You are what you eat”, then artist Janet Tavener shows us that what we are is highly mediated, chemically coloured and genetically dumbed down. In her solo show, Out of the Mould, Tavener presents a suite of cast resin objects in the sumptuous drawing room at Vaucluse House. Some […]
