  • The Dark Matters at Sydney’s White Rabbit Gallery

    The Dark Matters at Sydney’s White Rabbit Gallery

    I really love the notes which accompany the video work, “Billenium Waves”, by the artist, Tang Nannan, “Waves are the mountains of the sea” he says “and mountains are the waves of the land. They just rise and fall at different rates”. How cool is that? It’s one of three favourite works of mine in the current exhibition, “The Dark Matters” at Sydney’s White Rabbit Gallery.… Read the rest “The Dark Matters at Sydney’s White Rabbit Gallery”

  • Vile Bodies at White Rabbit

    Vile Bodies at White Rabbit

    As I’ve mentioned, I’m a huge fan of Sydney’s White Rabbit Gallery.

    Dedicated to works made in the 21st century, the White Rabbit Collection is owned by Judith Neilson, who was inspired to establish it on a 2001 trip to Beijing.

    Judith and her husband are seriously wealthy and made a wonderful gift to Sydney of an amazing collection.… Read the rest “Vile Bodies at White Rabbit”

    Heavy Artillery at White Rabbit

    “What was your favourite work?”, I asked my friend Sue as we walked away from Sydney’s “White Rabbit Gallery” this afternoon. “It was definitely the video work”, she told me. I had to agree. It’s a beautiful work. Over the course of maybe twenty or thirty minutes, you sit there in a darkened room and watch an artist take delivery of some large stacks of clay, and proceeds to turn those stacks into a human sculpture.… Read the rest “Heavy Artillery at White Rabbit”

    A new exhibition at White Rabbit gallery in Sydney is something I always anticipate. There’s such a large collection to draw upon, and which is constantly being added to, so you never know what you might get to see. Here’s a selection of the excellent work in the current exhibition. Video, sculpture, neon, you name it.… Read the rest “White Rabbit”

    Gallery Crawl

    There are a couple of really stunning video works in the exhibition, LandSeaSky currently showing at the National Art School in Sydney.

    The one that really caught my attention, appealed to both my head and my heart, was a work called Littoral (2014) by Derek Kreckler. As you walk into the space on the second floor, images of large waves at sea are projected onto vertical blinds.

    I spent the day hanging out with my friend Sue. After a bit of a sleep in, and then some breakfast, we headed off for a day of galleries, food, and generally hanging out.

    We started off with the current exhibition at White Rabbit which I’d previously attended and which I knew Sue would enjoy.… Read the rest “MCA – Sydney Biennale”

    “Most of our billionaires are selfish arseholes”, I told Sandra as we made our way in the elevator to the top floor of Sydney’s “White Rabbit” Gallery. In all honesty, it was probably a bit unfair, a bit of an unfounded generalisation. The point I was trying to make was that, while some of our billionaires make the headlines for their apparent apparent “meanness”, others, including Judith and Kerr Neilson have more quietly gone about their philanthropic works.… Read the rest “Currently at White Rabbit”

    Saturday Surprise

    I had no real plans for the day, aside from a bit of house-cleaning, reading and some catch-up TV. It’s been a busy week at work, and I have another busy one ahead of me. On top of that, there’s the possibility of the Federal Election being called tomorrow which will involve some time in at work also.… Read the rest “Saturday Surprise”

  • Beautiful Sunday

    Beautiful Sunday

    Twelve months ago in Sydney we were recovering from the dust storm. Twelve months later it remains a topic for conversation in Sydney. And it’s an event which has influenced two of the photographs in this year’s Sydney Life art exhibition in Hyde Park.

    One is a reasonably straightforward representation of the storm taken on the north side just near the Sydney Harbour Bridge.… Read the rest “Beautiful Sunday”
