Gallery artist Bundit Puangthong has been selected in the Bendigo Art Gallery Arthur Guy Memorial Painting Prize 2009. Bundit’s work ONE WENT OFF (above) encapsulates everything that is wonderful about his work: colour, composition and the jumble of words, themes and associations – Buddhist, Thai and American Pop culture. Mixed media on canvas 168.0 x 198.0 cm $6,300
Read a great interview with Vexta on the Melbourne Street Fashion website, and watch out for her upcoming solo exhibition at ECG in early October 2009.
Stefan Dunlop’s Selected Works exhibition is currently on view at the gallery.
Of his work Stefan says:
I’m interested in the reality not the symbol. I refer to my work at the moment as a kind of ‘patchy painting’. I have moved away from previous linear and spatial explorations and currently work using large patches of colour to build positive space out from the picture plane. The resulting work is solid and in the best examples creates a kind of exploded space beyond the canvas.
Stefan will be ‘In Conversation’ at the gallery as part of Brisbane’s Art Sunday on 26 July
Stefan Dunlop was recently awarded a University of Texas artist residency, Central Trak, which he will take up in 2010.
Stefan was also shortlisted for the LAUNCH Clayton Utz Travelling Scholarship held recently at Metro Arts in Brisbane.
His exhibition Selected Works opens at the gallery towards the end of this month, and will feature an artist talk at Brisbane’s forthcoming Art Sunday, to be held on 26 July 2009.
Margarita Georgiadis’s forthcoming show The Dust Weavers – A Prelude opens at ECG in early August.
For Margarita, the process of painting resembles that of writing a book. In her work we discover a record of life which finds resonance through its unfolding.
