Features in this issue
WILLIAM WEGMAN: BEING HUMAN
‘Much in Wegman’s oeuvre deals with issues of interest to art and artists. Cubism and other early twentieth-century art forms are constant motifs.’
William A. Ewing on Wegman’s influences and intent.
BALDESSIN/WHITELEY: PARALLEL VISIONS
‘Like Whiteley, Baldessin explored a duality in his art, where one figure may carry a number of different identities, different states of mind.’
Sasha Grishin AM explores Baldessin/Whiteley: Parallel Visions.
POLLY BORLAND: POLYVERSE
‘The new series was an endeavour to reduce visual language. I was aiming to abstract but at the same time conjure a kind of mythical dreamlike state.’
Polly Borland on her new series MORPH.
RIGG DESIGN PRIZE 2018
‘The shortlist for the Rigg Design Prize 2018 includes ten Australian studios working in the field of interior design and decoration invited to design a purpose-built interior that responds to the exhibition theme of ‘Domestic Living’.’
Simone LeAmon on the Rigg Design Prize 2018.
LIFE AND TIMES
‘The works by the amateur artist Maria Margaretha la Fargue, dating from 1761 to 1792, are limited in number, and this is likely why she is largely unknown to the greater public.’
Charles Dumas investigates The shrimp seller 1776.
