I just couldn't go past posting this extraordinary visual explosion of colour by Dutch artist Suzan Drummen. She uses thousands of individually placed glass, mirrors, metal and precious stones, that reflect light and give a 3D impact effect.
Congrats to Fleur and Alex Wiber for this great online creative approach to providing gallery space for artists. With 'art as the unifying force', they have created a space to link artists with collectors.
and my site at
"The Secret" produced in 2012 has the space to be exhibited at World Trade Centre gallery, as part of the MARS Art Rooms, 25 artists@WTC, 5 August- 30 Sept. Looking forward to the feedback!
Set up a piece in Federation Square as part of the Liveable and Sustainable Exhibition group show. A BIG space with movement, colour and action...so my little piece seemed a bit lost amongst it all.
Went back today and it looked Ok..seemed to have settled into the space and people were commenting on how it was the only sculpture in the exhibition.
Pieces by award winning photo journalist Andrew Brownbill are the highlight of the show. Worth a look if you at in CBD this week.
Fun day installing at D11@Docklands, a new initiative, artist led exhibition space, supported in the Docklands under Renew Australia.
The space that will feature curated exhibitions that support an interdisciplinary approach to contemporary art practice.
The gallery, coordinated by The Second Collective will feature a series of exhibitions curated on a two-three weekly basis. Each show features group, invited collaborations and solo exhibitions/ performances supported by an afternoon/evening opening event. Invited artists will be able to exhibit in one of the two large spaces at a nominal cost.
An opening event for a group exhibition from the 27 July- 17 August.
My Space will be featured ... great fun and thanks to organisers for this very supportive approach.
More go to
A group is starting a non-profit online contemporary art gallery which aims to support creative industries and individuals. It is a way to encourage people to buy contemporary art who may not be directly involved in the 'art scene'. Therefore, we intend to connect artists with collectors via a platform which is accessible to all people and is not intimidating. The more interest we get, the more this project will be able to develop and flourish!
The gallery avoids pretentiousness and exclusivity within the arts. We will alongside artists to help build their careers, exhibit & sell their work and encourage them to keep creating. The gallery also seeks to be welcoming to new collectors and those interested in getting involved in the arts.
We would like to have all the initial artists info by the 15th of July so we can officially launch the website, so the sooner you can get in contact with us, the better!
Please contact Fleur or Alex for more information

This looks like a spectacular piece at Hobart's current Dark MOFO.
A large scale public piece that creates a 15km tower of light made up of 49 searchlights to break the black evening.
This is Spectra, Ryoki Ikeda's installation that forms the central plank of Beam in Thine Own Eye, and the word is people seemed pulled towards it unable to resist its allure.
Grand Sculpture Light and steel in Melbourne Fed Square
The Helix Tree by Bruce Ramus is a grand sculpture of light and steel in the centre of Melbourne City at Fed Square. Inspired by the naturally occurring shape of the helix, the sculpture is constructed from 21 curved steel beams fitted with hundreds of LED lights. Like branches of a tree, the beams spiral 13 metres high into the sky from a central trunk. The Helix Tree uses sound-responsive technology via which voices of Melbourne bring to life its unique and vivid light displays.
Square of Light
A series of community driven short videos to address the question "When does the light turn on'? sharing diverse views on what it means to be part of contemporary Australia.
..........and for something different see how the northern hemisphere sees this Summer Solstice with National Geographic photos
Working under the assumption that silkworms are nature’s original 3D printers, researchers at MIT Media Lab's Mediated Matter group have created a domed sculpture from silk fibres woven by a robotic arm — which was then completed by over 6,500 silkworms.
Marina Abramovic The Artist is Present
Marina has been redefining what performing art is for 40 years using her body as the vehicle.
This film follows the artist as she prepares for an important milestone in her life through a major retrospective of her work at MOMA, New York.
The interviews with her are very reflective and insightful and a chance for her to respond to a question she must have been hearing for many years... 'But why is this art?"
Artscape: Don't Try This At Home - Performance Art in Australia
Screened on the eve of Kaldor Public Arts Projects' major art installation 13 Rooms, Artscape: Don’t try this at home - Performance Art in Australia explores the art of performance, touching on some of the international artists Australia has hosted, as well as retracing our own significant contributions to the form through to its current manifestation in the digital era.
An exhibtion of living sculpture.
Finnish environmental artist Kaarina Kaikkonen creates ethereal, dreamlike landscapes from repurposed clothes. Her latest work, entitled ‘Are we still going on?’ was recently installaed at Collezione Maramotti, a former factory that now houses contemporary art.
Kaarina Kaikkonen‘s huge site-specific installation contrasts with the former factory’s brutalist architecture. It consists of hundreds of second-hand shirts that together to create flowing forms. The garments, which seem to be holding hands, speak of the history of clothing production while creating a dialogue between the masculine and the feminine.
The shirts have been neatly organized by color into a form resembling the interior hull. The garments’ rhythmic repetition and past lives call to mind the fragility of human beings. The exhibition ‘Are We Still Going On?’ and other artworks at the Collezione Maramotti can be seen until 21 April 2013, at Reggio Emilia, Italy.
I’m influenced by contemporary issues and interested in questioning everyday patterns by intervening and provoking alternative forms of discourse.
