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 📷.
Come down on the 10th for this gig at Babushka, CLAP HANDS‘ last for the year.
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.
Shit Narnia have just announced their single launch for ‘This Is How They Kill Us’, and along with it a poster I did for the same. Continue reading POSTER: ‘This Is How They Kill Us’, Shit Narnia Single Launch.
Inspired by Shit Narnia’s track ‘Dog Wedding’.

“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.
