Paul Kirk Solo Show SIRENS

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.”

For all enquiries please contact central@platform72.com.au or call 02 8003 7247.

DATES
September 15, 6:00pm-8:00pm

Hannah Rothschild: The Improbability Of Love

THE IMPROBABILITY OF LOVE is a big, bold, rich canvas of a novel, a cross genre goliath about art and the art world, about food and culinary art, and about love and the improbability of love.

It’s also a thriller, a mystery, an historical romance and a satire, transcending mass market and literary fiction whilst straddling both.

The novel takes its title from a painting attributed to Watteau, the most significant piece of art to be auctioned this century, the value of which is set by desire: who wants to own it and how badly. Continue reading Hannah Rothschild: The Improbability Of Love

New theatre company Tooth & Sinew’s premiere production of Howard Barker’s SCENES FROM AN EXECUTION lives up to the company’s name.

It’s an apt choice, as Barker’s language is muscular, visceral and a veritable anatomical alphabet.

Our first image is of a female artist sketching a nude male model. Her first words are about buttocks. “Dead men float with their arses in the air.”
