EXHIBITION: True Blue at Beyond Skate published on No Comments on EXHIBITION: True Blue at Beyond Skate

In the lead up to Australia Day/Invasion Day, we’re meditating on Australian identity, nationalism and colonialism in this exhibition at Beyond Skate.  I’ll have two paintings, Ides and Cinis, in the exhibition, on colonial grief, guilt, horror and assimilated cultural identity.  You can watch their progress via my instagram 📷.

POSTER: Dogs In Space (1986)

POSTER: Dogs In Space (1986) published on No Comments on POSTER: Dogs In Space (1986)

A reimagined poster for the 1986 cult Australian film 'Dogs In Space'. Main character Sam (Michael Hutchence) is pictured in the foreground in black and white, with a jagged red form and the title in the background in red.  Within the red shape can be seen a 60s Volkswagon Beetle car and boarding of houses. In the background above Sam's head are red comets.  The background is white.

Dogs In Space (1986) is a Richard Lowenstein film about sharehouse punks in St Kilda in the 1970s. Featuring Michael Hutchence, the Primitive Calculators, and a lot of heroin, it’s a classic.

It’ll be up at the Bird for the next month or something as part of an art show reimagining film posters through the styles of Perth artists. The Cars That Ate Paris, the Pissedcolas and Cold Meat will be launching it this Saturday at 8.20 pm with some movie tunes too. So come down basically.

gallows 001

 

suicide, catholicism cw //

“So Dante recalls in sound the death of Judas in the death of Pier della Vigna for the same crimes of avarice and treachery. Ahithophel, Judas, your own Pier della Vigna. Avarice, hanging, self-destruction, with avarice counting as self-destruction as much as hanging. And what does the anonymous Florentine suicide say in his torment at the end of the canto? Io fei gibetto a me de le mie case. – – And I – I made my own house be my gallows.”

// Hannibal by Thomas Harris, New York, 1999, 221-234.
