The first of its kind for Sydney, The Bayanihan Philippine Art Project is a collaborative multi venue celebration that presents numerous opportunities to discover and explore Filipino art and cultural practice across the city this winter.

The Art Gallery of New South Wales, Blacktown Arts Centre, Campbelltown Arts Centre, Mosman Art Gallery and Peacock Gallery & Auburn Arts Studio, in association with Museums & Galleries NSW, are partnering to present a multi-arts program that celebrates contemporary art and culture of the Philippines and the strong ties that this country has to Australia.

The art of the Philippines has been largely under-represented and under-explored in visual arts programming in many Australian cultural institutions. This project seeks to redress the imbalance and to examine the diversity of contemporary art forms and artists of the Philippines and present them to Australian audiences.

Mosman Art Gallery on Sydney’s North Shore is taking a lead role in the project with its presentation of Halò – an exhibition by internationally acclaimed installation artists, Alfredo Juan Aquilizan and Isabel Gaudinez-Aquilizan, alongside the creative talents of Sydney based multi-media artist, JD Reforma.

Perhaps the most ambitious installation ever to be shown at Mosman, the belly of the Gallery has been filled with a large scale construction that dominates the main exhibition spaces. The Aquilizan’s ‘fleet’ of military-like vessels, amassed and waiting mid-journey and all handmade from ubiquitous cardboard boxes, appears in whole floating between two floor levels. It is a powerful and challenging statement sensitive to the social and complex issues of migration and of the artists’ own personal history and transient experiences.

These much in demand contemporary art practitioners supplement the exhibition with significant works from their own archive reflecting the artist’s practice of recycling materials and works wherever possible.

Taking over the Gallery’s Cube Space and it surrounding walls, is the work of JD Reforma, a young Sydney based artist with Filipino family heritage. Reforma’s layered video works convey aspects of the complex and often violent ways in which American culture has entered the Filipino psyche.

In his digital and popular soundtrack mash-up ‘Coconut Republic’ (2017), five films convey conflict, linked by the fact that each was shot on location in The Philippines but set elsewhere; Filipino jungles and landscapes serving as an aesthetic stand-in.

Reforma also investigates notions of popular culture and the cult of celebrity in his darkly humorous ‘Confidently Beautiful, with a heart’ (2017) a work about the Miss Universe 2015 pageant, at which Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach was crowned winner. As Reforma notes in the exhibition catalogue: “I think it’s particularly resonant now to revisit and assess this post-Trump institute in the context of a very Trumpian reality.”

A series of special community events and public program is programmed across the city. Halo, a free exhibition, is on show at Mosman Art Gallery until September 11.

This exhibition  will feature the iconic art of American Georgia O’Keeffe alongside modernist masterpieces by pioneering Australian artists Margaret Preston and Grace Cossington Smith.

The ground-breaking exhibition draws together about 30 works by each artist from the breadth of their careers.

While O’Keeffe, Preston and Cossington Smith developed highly individual styles, they are connected by their choice of subject, their experimentation with light, colour and form, and their commitment to presenting alternative ways of seeing the world.

Each artist identified in their paintings a personalised or modernised sense of place, and in so doing developed new art forms that expressed something of the identity and culture of their respective nations.

The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes @ the Powerhouse Museum

“Watson. Come at once if convenient. If inconvenient, come all the same.”

(Sir Arthur Conan Doyle -The Creeping Man )

In this very  exciting exhibition history fans and Sherlockians are able to journey back to Sherlock Holmes’ Victorian London and help solve a fascinating murder mystery.

The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes opened on 3 June at the MAAS Powerhouse Museum in Ultimo and runs until 8 October 2017.

Museum visitors explore the science and mystery behind the world of Sherlock Holmes and the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, doctor-turned-author, and the man behind the legend.

Holmes was a chemistry and forensics expert ahead of his time, who used seemingly trivial observations of evidence that others missed, or interpreted incorrectly, to solve challenging mysteries.

The exhibition shows how his methods altered the way police work was conducted in the real world, leading the way to the modern forensics of today. Continue reading The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes @ the Powerhouse Museum

This is a gallery that shines a light on extraordinary achievement. It is a showcase of makers and designers who set their bar high, who take a risk, who seek to push ideas, techniques, to further themselves and their work, who pursue a flight of fancy with a twinkle in the eye.

In-House Definition: done or existing within an organisation; without assistance from outside; internally.

Made In-House :  is a showcase of beautiful, functional things for the home, made at MakerSpace.

The exhibition  presented a selection of pieces that fit in a home, and presented a high quality of making and design; a mix of the quotidian and the sublime. The exhibition was set up as a curated series of scenes or tableaux: for example, a chair, side table, light, teacup and napkin set up ready for use.




To mark the 75th Anniversary of the Japanese submarine attack on Sydney Harbour, Mosman Art Gallery has organised a multi-media site-specific exhibition staged in an oversized old naval fuel tank at Headland Park, Georges Heights, overlooking the scene of the World War II account.

Six Australian and Japanese artists have interpreted the event in a contemporary context, offering large–scale installations, paintings, soundscapes and immersive experiences that consider war and conflict on a global scale, while evoking one of Sydney Harbour’s darkest moments.

When the Japanese opened fire on the night of 31st May 1942, it was a brazen strike that created fear and havoc across Sydney and around the nation. War was brought home to Australia’s Eastern States. Continue reading TOKKOTAI : A NEW EXHIBITION BY CONTEMPORARY AUSTRALIAN AND JAPANESE ARTISTS


The mind of Harrison Earl is a manifestation of adolescent hobbies. Comic book artists and characters, heroes, heroines and villains from decade-past anime and a fair share of 90’s alternative rock music provide the context for the surrealist art of Harrison Earl.

BLACK RAINBOW is an artistic dichotomy of the human form. The title of the project encapsulates each piece within the exhibition; the idea of opposition and contrast through a dreamlike vision. Through this, a singular recurring character will travel within artworks telling an interconnected, subjective story throughout the various dream states. Continue reading BLACK RAINBOW : A SOLO EXHIBITION BY HARRISON EARL @ M2 GALLERY


Buddhist Exhibition is an exhibition that  has been organised by the University of NSW Buddhist Society (UNIBUDS) to showcase Buddhist artefacts and artworks to the public.

In accordance with this year’s theme, “Uncovering the Light of Buddhism”,  the exhibition will explore the original purpose and meaning behind some Buddhist artefacts, by delving into the influence of time and culture in shaping the current perceptions of these artefacts.

How did Buddhism come about? What items did monks use back in the day of the Buddha? Who distilled the Buddha’s teachings from oral communication into written form and how were they recorded? Come and find out as you navigate your way through artefacts and exhibits as art, history and Buddhism intertwine.             Continue reading BUDDHIST EXHIBITION 2017 : UNCOVERING THE LIGHT OF BUDDHISM


“An artist’s interest in gardening is to produce pictures without brushes.” Anna Lea Merritt

The latest luminous film from Exhibition on Screen is from the Florence Griswold Museum in Connecticut located at the former boarding house in Connecticut where the artists gathered .

Narrated by Gillian Anderson and directed by Phil Grabsky, with some voice over of artist’s letters of the time, it documents how the American impressionist movement followed its own path, whilst taking heed of leading French impressionists such as Renoir and Cezanne.

It also puts the art movement in context of the development of America at the time with the adoption of Impressionist techniques by US artists and it examines the way the movement interacted with changing attitudes to gardens, as well as the many other upheavals in American society at the time. Continue reading EXHIBITION ON SCREEN : THE ARTIST’S GARDEN : AMERICAN IMPRESSIONISM




I was born and grew up in São Paulo, an extremely busy city, full of contrasts. I have always loved to wander around the old downtown, amongst high rises, noisy traffic and people from all walks of life.

Bossa Nova is forever the rhythm that calms me down; and samba is in my blood. Maybe in a past life I lived in Africa. Drums hypnotise me, and Carnival is a sublime elation.

I wish Brazil did not have the major social inequality it does. There´s a lot of suffering around, but funnily enough through suffering huge creativity flourishes. Natural beauty and an aura of excitement: even in its dull moments, Brazil is a party place, where you can have fun and find love.

Speaking about love! I met my Aussie husband on the Amazon, and yes, it was true love! I moved to Sydney, which quickly turned into another passion.

Aboriginal art and culture became an inspiration as much as Indigenous and African culture were inspirations in Brazil.

My soul is forever divided by my original and new roots, however through painting I feel complete, I´m able to connect my two beloved countries, or indeed all the amazing places I have visited around this planet, and the ones I hope to see in the future.

When I can´t travel physically, I travel through my art.

On this particular trip, I couldn´t go anywhere else but deep into Brazil. It´s a combination of art, design, nature, culture, music, people, the spiritual, the raw and the mundane. It´s Brazilian Dreaming.

.Flavia is extending an invitation to readers to see her exhibition on display at the Penny Farthing Design House, 51 Darling Street, East Balmain from the 3-11 March.

Opening Exhibition “Shift from within” by the artist Haruyo Morita

Le Petit Bateau art collective is pleased to invite readers to the opening exhibition of the talented artist HARUYO MORITA on Saturday 11th February, between 7 pm and 10 pm at the Vincent and Dupree’ Salon 248 Bronte Road, Waverley.

The title of the exhibition is Haruyo Morita : Shift From Within.

Whatever word or label we use to describe the oneness of our universe, we are all inescapably participating in it. Haruyo Morita’s works explore the connected nature of this existence, recalibrating our perception of ourselves by focusing on our spiritual similarities, whilst accepting our man-made differences.

“Just because people believe in different things, they are no better or less – we are just made differently to keep the balance in this universe.”

Haruyo’s paintings reflect this understanding by stripping away our human forms and figures to reveal the shared essence of what it actually means to be a human being below the surface.

Haruyo seeks to replace judgement, malice and confusion with a gentle understanding and calm observation. Her planetary orbs of human experience sit suspended in ethereal whiteness; peaceful, egoless and beautiful.

In a world where many resolve themselves to negative energy and the perceived drudgery of existence, Haruyo reaches for more by focusing on acceptance and embracing the poetry in everything around her.

There is no instruction on how to feel, only an effort to inspire by showing us one possibility and prompting us to make our own decision, to create the changes we desire for ourselves, from within.

Haruyo Morita is a Japanese artist who began her study of visual arts at Tajimi Technical High school (Japan) in 1994.

Morita’s passion for art soon took her around the world to further refine her style at the National Art School (Sydney) and at the ‘Villa Bastille’ Art School (Paris).

Morita is currently based in Parramatta working with Sumi (calligraphy ink) ‚ traditional mineral pigments‚ gold leaf‚ shell powder‚ acrylic and oil paints.

Danny Eastwood Photography Exhibition @ Black Eye Gallery

Liquēre – Latin verb meaning – to be fluid

Photography is often a literal transposition of reality, but it can also blur boundaries.

The images in this exhibition aim to confound the viewer.

Submerged, reflected & refracted; figures are presented in an almost abstract way. The pared back form becomes sculptural with the subtle modulations of light and motion.

These are transitory moments of movement – the figure and the water perfectly meeting each other in a moment of flux.

Danny Eastwood is a fine art and commercial photographer sought after for his attention to detail and creative vision.

Eastwood has been recognised internationally at D&AD, the New York Advertising Festival and features in Luerzer’s Archive Top 200 Advertising Photographers.

Eastwood is a member of The POOL COLLECTIVE, a creative cooperative comprising of seven artists working in the mediums of motion and still imagery.

Opening Night: Thursday 16 February 6pm – 8pm / Exhibition runs: 14 February – 5 March

Allow plenty of time to explore in this huge, sprawling, fascinating exhibition that has just opened at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney. Elegantly designed, the exhibition is situated on the street level, right near the entrance.

The exhibition features six mummies from the British Museum’s collection, dating from 900 BC – 180 AD, all scanned using the latest CT technology. Interactive, 3D visualisations and allows visitors to explore the mummies, whilst displaying over 200 objects which help place each mummy in its historical context.

The exhibition asks – what lies beneath the wrappings of each mummy ? Who were they, how old were they when they died and what caused their death?! Continue reading EGYPTIAN MUMMIES – EXPLORING ANCIENT LIVES @ THE POWERHOUSE


Who was Hieronymus Bosch? Why do his strange and fantastical paintings resonate with art lovers now more than ever? How does he bridge the medieval and Renaissance worlds and continue to influence artists even today?! Where did his unconventional and timeless creations come from? These and other questions were answered in this fascinating film.

The film is based on the critically acclaimed, once-only exhibition which brought together practically all Bosch’s major paintings and drawings from around the world to his home town of Den Bosch, Netherlands.

This is a striking exhibition that saw almost half a million visitors marveling at Bosch’s quirky creations and imagination. The Museum had to remain until after midnight every night. Continue reading EXHIBITION ON SCREEN : THE CURIOUS WORLD OF HEIRONYMUS BOSCH

PINNED TO THE WALL is a highly charged series of new work by Sydney artist Susan O’Doherty that uses discarded domestic items to explore themes of gender inequality and family violence.

Working across assemblage, painting and sculpture, O’Doherty has purposely collected familiar and nostalgic objects to help map her contemporary storytelling and to bring the private into a public message.

Susan O’Doherty began working on this exhibition three years ago collecting objects by design. Her trademark use of vintage items was intentionally chosen and placed to convey harmony or dissonance or something intangible in between.

This is a solo exhibition by artist Gabbi Lancaster which  commemorate the Moreton Bay fig trees of Sydney. Jade is an expression of the artist’s love and respect for nature, highlighting the magnificence, beauty and vulnerability of trees and the birds that rely on them.

The collection captures the detail and majesty of the Moreton Bay Fig trees of Anzac Parade and Randwick. The unnecessary destruction of these significant trees, by the NSW government, has compelled the artist to spend many hours under their canopies, leading to the creation of these works. Continue reading GABBI LANCASTER’S JADE @ m2 GALLERY SURRY HILLS


Our collective memory is shaped by the ideology of the day. The politics of memory enables a regime to record its version of the past. History is conditioned by this shared remembrance.

The decaying monuments from Tito’s Yugoslavia form the backdrop for ‘Monumentalism’ – an exhibition curated by Anthony Bautovich at Kudos Gallery in Sydney opening on Tuesday the 8th of November 2016.

Currently undertaking his Masters of Curating at the University of New South Wales Art and Design (UNSWA&D) Anthony has been awarded the 2016 Kudos Gallery Early Career Curator Award. The son of migrants from the former Yugoslavia, the curator’s interest in art from Eastern Europe was the catalyst for ‘Monumentalism’. The exhibition will bring together International and Australian artists to respond to the emotional, political and social impact of the failings of the single party state.

The exhibiting artists are Croatian multimedia artist Igor Grubić (film), Dutch photographer Jan Kempenaers, Sydney artists Tim Bruniges (sound), Biljana Jancić (installation), Kuba Dorabialski (video), Kusum Normoyle (video and performance) and Vienna based artist Marko Lulić (video).

The images featured in Jan Kempenaers’ 2010 book release, ‘Spomenik’, – a Croatian word meaning monument – created an Internet frenzy. The alien like modernist structures in ‘Spomenik’ captured the curiosity of the West. Memorials from the past, these abstract monuments were commissioned by President Josip Broz Tito to convey a sense of confidence and strength in the new Socialist Republic. Designed and built in the ‘60s and ‘70s by leading architects and sculptors from Yugoslavia including Vojin Bakić and Bogdan Bogdanović, these landmarks of modernism are located at sites of battles and concentration camps commemorating the victims of fascism in WW11.

The aesthetic beauty of these brutalist memorials challenges their innate and commemorative intention. Devoid of signs of ideologies, war heroes or religions, these abstract forms were symbols of a modern and unified future. Established as recreational areas to visit and cultivate a sense of national and cultural togetherness, these remote and isolated memorials now lay idle.

As the Balkans War took hold in the early ‘90s and Yugoslavia fell apart, the monuments became touchstones for the inherent hatreds from the past. Many of the monuments have been destroyed and even today the remaining memorials are being dismantled for their raw materials. The authorities turn a blind eye. From triumph to tragedy, these abandoned and decaying forms are a reflection of a broken and disbanded state. The original intention for the creation of the monuments has resulted in their demise. Politics created the monuments and politics has destroyed them.

Where: Kudos Gallery, 6 Napier St, Paddington 2021. (02) 9326 0034
When: Opening 5-7pm on Tuesday the 8th of November.
Live performance on opening night by Kusum Normoyle at 6pm.

The exhibition runs from the 9th to the 19th of November. Gallery hours are Wednesday to Friday 11am – 6pm and Saturday 11am to 4pm.

The Student with the Red Rose
The Student with the Red Rose

In 2010, acclaimed artist Del Kathryn Barton and renown filmmaker Brendan Fletcher had a casual conversation about working Barton’s series of Oscar Wilde inspired artworks into a short film.

Six years later, Oscar Wilde’s The Nightingale and the Rose, was born.

Currently showing at ACMI, the 14-minute adaption of Wilde’s tale of the same title is now open to the public.

The film took three years to produce with Barton and Fletcher working closely with award-winning post-production house, Method Studios. The team used a mix of handmade props and post-production animation techniques to meticulously craft the piece.

What they have created is an intense and beautiful rendition of Wilde’s original, featuring a chilling score by Sarah Blasko and the voices of some of Australia’s most celebrated actors including Geoffrey Rush and Mia Wasikowska. Continue reading OSCAR WILDE’S THE NIGHTINGALE AND THE ROSE
