Taste of Art exhibition - Noosa Regional Gallery

The time lapse between my posts is seemingly getting wider and wider! Hope you are all well and happy J

I have been quietly working away in the shadows on a few projects which, unfortunately remain confidential at the moment so I am unable to share any juicy goss.  However, I have an artwork hanging in Noosa Regional Gallery for the Friends Noosa Regional Gallery's fourth group show Taste of Art, showcasing an array of rich and diverse local creatives responding to the theme Reflections - on display until Sunday 22 March 2015.

My exhibiting piece entitled Resilient II and pictured above may look familiar to some - it is the reverse sister to Resilient I featured in Living Change, Flying Arts Alliance Inc touring exhibition of the 2013 Queensland Regional Art Awards.  When creating the artwork the positive impression (cut) ended up being just as effective as the negative impression, so I created two artworks from the one cut.  For those of you that are interested in process... I discovered a great resource on my travels, a machine that cuts through corrugated iron (and thickened steel, marble etc) with great precision and of course by skill of the operator Steve, a man of great efficiency from Caloundra Waterjet Cutting.

Above, a detailed photograph water jet cutting the corrugated iron, and full view of the machine below, as you can see, this is a serious piece of equipment!
