What is Bricolage? Stephen Baxter has an answer

Stephen Baxter has added an intriguing new gallery - BRICOLAGE - to his website.

This is what he has to say about it:

“BRICOLAGE the gallery is work of my own that I feel has elements that make them a Bricolage. It is debatable as to what makes a Bricolage so some of my research into the subject is included on the page hope this will enlighten the viewers as to what it is I am on about with this strategy.”

You can find Bricolage in Stephen Baxter’s Galleries section on:

There’s a neat wrap-up of Bricolage at:

Dave Groom selected for this year’s “Churchie”

Dave Groom has been selected for this year’s Churchie Emerging Art Exhibition. After a couple of shows at Doggett Street Studio and some interest from Rex Irwin Art Dealer in Sydney, Dave has attracted the attention of the 'Churchie' with two pieces selected for the 2004 show. One is a medium sized pastel which Dave completed in response to terrorism and the other piece is a larger oil, depicting the open forest that surrounds him at his studio on Beechmont.

The Churchie Emerging Art Exhibition is held at Morris Hall at the Anglican Church Grammar School, Oaklands Parade, East Brisbane from the 14 to 16 May.

Both works can be seen in the New Works gallery on:
