FELTnatural install

Here are some shots of my work titled ‘Ping Pong Glob’ that was installed under the King William Street Bridge for the FELTnatural River Torrens Public Art Project in November 2013. Thanks also to local street press Rip It Up for the promo!

23rdians @ Arts SA, Sculpture for Sight & FELTspace Wrap Party

23rdians @ Arts SA 2014

ENIGMA23(1)

Today I delivered 3 of my Silicone Nozzle light works to Arts SA to be part of their annual emerging curators program hang. Emerging curator Carollyn Kavanagh has developed a fascinating exhibition rationale and diverse group of artists whose work will be on display in the Arts SA building throughout 2014. I am thrilled to be involved in this project. You can check out her concept for the hang below….

I will also have three other Silicone Nozzles light works on display at this years Sculpture for Sight exhibtion at St. Marks College. The fundraising exhibition is to be held this weekend. The sold out Cocktail Party is on Friday night but the general public can view works from 100 artists on Saturday 14th December 11am to 5pm – gold coin donation entry. There will be fantastic coffee and gourmet food available for purchase – all by the wonderful bistro PUBLIC CBD.

The objectives of this event are:

To raise $200,000 to equip four regional eye centers, and reduce the enormous burden of cataract blindness in Myanmar. In remote regions of Myanmar nearly 1 in every 10 adults are blind, most unnecessarily so due to cataract. The new equipment and specialised training will allow the local eye surgeons to markedly increase the number of cataract operations they can perform each year. We also need to continue providing subspecialty training for our colleagues in the major ophthalmic training centres in Myanmar.

To promote the synergy of sculpture and loss of sight

To promote sculpture artists, offering pieces for sale on a commission basis
