MINING PYRITE is a NEW exhibition to be displayed for FREE at Newington Armory Gallery at Sydney Olympic Park, from 10 am-4 pm every weekend from Saturday 17 June – Sunday 20 August 2017 (inclusive).
Curated by Cassandra Hard-Lawrie and Nick Vickers, MINING PYRITE will feature the works of 20 international and local contemporary artists, each of whom have drawn inspiration from Sydney Olympic Park and used its facilities to create their artworks. The diverse exhibition spans a broad range of expressive media forms including installation, sculpture, photography, multimedia, video, painting and more.
Gaining its title from the mineral ‘pyrite’, or ‘Fools Gold’, this exhibition explores the parallel narrative of failure and success that can be drawn from any ‘artist’s’ story.
Curator Nick Vickers draws comparison between the development of Sydney Olympic Park and that of the artist’s journey-“The constant testing and exploration of the boundaries of what does and doesn’t work is the stock and trade of creativity,” explained Vickers.
During the past 12 years, Sydney Olympic Park Authority has supported more than 170 artists’ journeys of exploration by providing its artists-in-residence program. The program allows artists to take inspiration on-site of the historic, heritage-listed Newington Armory precinct, via its unique studio spaces available for rent to 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.

Artist Paul Kirk is inviting readers to the opening of his solo exhibition SIRENS which takes place on September 15 between 6 and 8 pm.
Sirens is an Exhibition based upon the watery theme of the ‘Sirens’ of mythology by Sydney based artist Paul Kirk. The Sirens in Greek mythology were beautiful creatures who were also quite dangerous. They would foreshadow death luring sailors towards them with their sweet songs across the ocean breeze only to become shipwrecked.
The artworks are conceptual portraits of female artists by Sydney-based emerging artist, Paul Kirk. These unique portraits are oil paintings transformed into three-dimensional objects. They infuse sculptural elements to create a conceptual portrait of the sitter becoming a of the subject.
As Paul states “my portrait ‘Subjects’ are current Australian Female Artists that I perceive as having an ‘Edge’ in their art practice and in their personality. This edginess I find fascinating, intriguing and uncanny in the ‘Sublime’ sense. Their innate wildness that could potentially lead to connection to ‘Sirens’ of mythology.
“Aesthetically, my paintings look at how lighting phenomena can alter our perceptions of two-dimensional and three-dimensional representation.”
