A note from the artist…

Update

Happy New Year and wishing everyone a wonderful 2018.

2018 is off to a busy start, with numerous group exhibitions to get things started. Firstly we have a group print show in Chico California USA, followed by a show in Sydney, Australia for All We Can’t See. Details below.

I also will have some work showing at the Ambassadors Residence in Den Haag, Netherlands and the Australian High Commission in Singapore in Feb/March.

I am excited to share some new glass sculptures I have been working on with master glass blowers from Leerdam, Netherlands. It has been a fascinating experience and details will be posted in March.

I also have a solo show taking shape for July 2018 in Berlin and also a solo exhibition in Melbourne in August.

Finally the TEXT page has been updated for the latest articles posted in recent months. Go have a read!

All we can’t see – group exhibition, Sydney

In August 2016 The Guardian published The Nauru Files, leaked incident reports written by staff in Australia’s detention centre on Nauru between 2013 and 2015. These files detail 2,116 individual cases of assault, sexual abuse, self-harm, child abuse and abhorrent living conditions endured by asylum seekers in the care of the Australian Government. Despite the harrowing nature of the files, the centre continues to operate as before – the conditions remain and the abuse is ongoing.

‘All we can’t see’ exhibition aims to raise awareness and to humanise the individuals the Nauru files are about. I am very privileged to be showing work for this important show.

When: 2nd February – 10th February 2018

Where: The Yellow House, 57-59 Macleay Street Potts Point, Sydney
