As you may have already heard I've joined forces with fellow Melbourne artist Megan Dell for ‘Split Personalities’ Presented by Fuel Magazine. A duo art exhibition to be held at No Vacancy Gallery, opening on Thursday 18 of February and running until Friday 5 March 2010.
Currently we are in the process of creating a selection of pieces in a variety of mediums and methods from stencilling to illustrations and installations to mixed media. With a emphasis on using recycled materials as a base in which they are working upon, their works reflect an inspiration of ones man trash is a another man's treasure, in this case women's treasure. Both of us vary in styles and mediums in our own works, with swapping between different applications of creativity and contexts, which in turn are our own creative 'Split Personalities'.
For both of us this is the largest showcase of our works in one space that we are preparing for to date.
Recently Megan has exhibited in New Collections by Freshly Baked Gallery, Spin That Thing at Famous Gallery, the Postcard Show at the Linden Gallery and shown in Happenstance Magazine. For 'Split Personalities' her works will reflect her strong use of recycled materials and finding beauty in unlikely places.
In relation to my own art I was published in Curvy 6 and with works in both the Sydney and Melbourne exhibitions. More recently I've exhibited in 'Petits Travaux' at Retrospect Galleries and Leeloo's 'Once Upon' at aMBUSH. My works were also on display as part of the Underground at the 2009 Melbourne Stencil Festival. I'm very busy working on a selection of pieces with promise that you will see a surfboard installation, a visual representation of my grandparents history and of course a strong presence of my passion for nature and using ones imagination.
As part of the Creative Womens Circle, Megan and I will be doing an artist talk on Saturday 20 February from 10am – 12noon. We will discuss how we came together for 'Split Personalities', about our works, the creative process and how we put together such an exhibition. This is for women only and an RSVP is required at www.cwc-melbourne.blogspot.com.
