How Memories Are Made – Now Open

If you follow this blog at all then you will be well aware that everything for me over the last few months have led to my current exhibition that opened last night. Well It was a really great night with so many friends and new faces coming by and having a look at what I’ve been up to for the last few years. Once all the prints were on the wall, I was as amazed as anyone at this collection of work. I hadn’t realised I had done so many colour prints. So much for a narrative though, I guess I’m the narrative and this is how varied my life is at times…

…and on the opposing wall was the show’s centerpiece. The Fender telecaster that became a woodblock and then returned to being a guitar. It was fun last night to see people walk up and strum the stings only to them seem genuinely surprised when it made a sound. Exhibition-2

For me the music I make and the art I make are one and the same creative past-time.  So it was good to show off some of where my prints have gone.

As per usual though, I took these shots at the start of the night before anyone showed up and the forgot to take any photos as the night got underway. The artshow is up for the next few weeks and is open every day so if you are down in Fortitude Valley you should stop on by.

A few people have asked about some of the limited Artist Books and records I made to coincide with the show. These are not in the gallery but are now available online here…

…and in the lead up to last night i even spent a few minutes having a chat on local radio 4BC about the show. You can go have a listen to that HERE

A big thanks to Matt at Mild Manners for helping put it together!

Tonight Live…

Everything is up on the walls and we’re ready to rock n roll (so to speak).

I even got a nice bit of coverage on page 9 in today’s daily newspaper The Courier Mail.

And I should mention that where as the exhibition is running for the next few weeks, the limited hand-made artist books and the vinyl I have made (scroll down the page to see them) will only be available from me tonight at the opening. So if you come along, hit me up!

Thanks and I’ll see you later on!

It’s been a few years between solo art shows but thankfully due to that, I have a few years of artwork that I will be showing as part of this show.
More details will be coming along in the next few days but until then you will find a portion of what’s on display over on my facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/againstthewoodgrain

So many great friends and great artists are a part of this. Nothing hi-brow, just a lot of good people having a good time. Come be a part of it!
