Kites and new work on the way for Robert Andrews

Robert Andrews is working on a new exhibition - tentatively Urban Aesthetic - to be shown at the Art Factory Gallery, 84 Merivale Street, South Brisbane in March 2004.

He is also currently coordinating some kite-making workshops for Brisbane City Council which are part of the Brisbane City Council's Active & Healthy Parks programme and there’s more workshops headed for this year's Woodford Folk Festival so keep an eye out for both.

Sam Sosnowski gets a positive reaction from overseas through website

We’re always after feedback from the artists that are using artHIVES to get their art out there and here’s what Sam Sosnowski had to say about getting his latest exhibition on-line:

“After just having constructed my new website with artHIVES, I posted my
latest exhibition on my site. I was thrilled when a prospective buyer turned
into a client after seeing my ad for the exhibition (with the website URL).
The client went straight to the website and bought a picture - before the
exhibition had even opened! I also had a client in United Arab Emirates
who bought three pictures - purely from the website! Certainly a great
investment and easy to use! Thank you!”

Mark Dutney to exhibit unconventional portraits in the new year

Essentially a collection of portraits without faces, Mark Dutney’s new exhibition - Archetypal Kites - opens at Doggett Street Studio (85 Doggett St, Newstead, Brisbane) on Friday 16 January 2004 and runs to 7 February 2004.

“They are conceptually representative of people and types of people,” Mark Dutney explains. ‘I entered one of the portraits in the Archibald Prize of 2003 but it didn't get much of a look in I think. It was a very nice portrait of Eugene Carchesio wearing a fetching metal white cone cap but because there were no eyes, nose, or mouth I don't think it was appreciated as a good portrait. To me it's got "Eugene" written all over it.

“The portraits are of family and also people states, like lovers and friends. There are individuals (eg. Michael and Eugene) and types of individuals (eg. butcher, lifesaver and syncronized swimmers).

“All the images are developed on a kite shaped field which represents to me the human form. The kite shape is the filled in area occupied by a crucifix shape, and the crucifix shape is the most primitive representation I know of a human figure.”

New Judith Kentish show to open at Brisbane’s IMA

"Here is one impression: rows of bunched cloth held by a rough grid, pinned to the wall. As if someone, wanting to show us something, is using both hands with fingers spread wide to try to hold too much cloth flat against the wall, and the cloth is escaping in places from between their fingers, and bursting out at the sides." - Jill Barker (excerpt from catalogue essay, 2003)

Judith Kentish’s latest exhibition - cloaked - opens at the Institute of Modern Art (420 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley) on Saturday 13 December 200 at 4pm and continues to 31 January 2004. You can ring for any exhibition enquiries on 07 32525750 and you can see some images at:
