Paper Works III
exhibition lookbook

We are pleased to present you with the exhibition catalogue for Paper Works III, on view at the Gallery until Saturday 2 May.

The third edition of Paper Works III again features artists working with paper as a material in innovative ways; from the origami-like folding, present in the work of Glen Clarke, Liz Shreeve, and Lisa Giles to the incredibly delicate and intricate hand cut paper from Louise Morgan, Nicola Moss, and Mylyn Nguyen. Helen Mueller‘s ‘earthen wear’, melds printmaking with molded vessels, Bettina Hill’s ‘The Shape of Paper, arcs and lines’, features strips of paper woven into a bulbous form, and Elizabeth Willing uses processed cheese to sculpt a single sheet of paper through natural processes of decomposition.

NB: All of these exhibitions are eligible to be reviewed for the 2 Danks Street Award for Contemporary Art Criticism. For further details and to download an application form, visit the 2 Danks Street website here.

▶ CAROL MURPHY, La Baigneuse
“This exhibition references the depiction of the bather in art history, but using the medium of ceramics. It is a further examination of the sculptural form in various poses at rest and play.”


▶ TODD FULLER, Studies in Motion
“Drawing is a personal obsession, through it I dissect the world its occupants and my relationship to these elements. Studies in Motion features studies of choreographic sequences, their physics, energetic states and an intuitive response to the two.”


▶ FLATLINE, A Dance for Paul Klee in Black Box Projects
“Flatline is an interdisciplinary collective and at its core is artist Todd Fuller and dancer/choreographer Carl Sciberras. ‘A Dance for Paul Klee‘ is a choreographic score forged from the logic of mark making after several drawing classes with a group of dancers. The piece is filmed on a beach made famous by Arthur Boyd and then articulated by a hand drawn transcription of itself.”

Flatline is a finalist in the Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award at Graftion Regional Gallery with the video work ‘A Dance for Paul Klee‘, to be screened from the 17 October to 7 December 2014.


▶ GREER TAYLOR, out of rain
“The works in out of rain refer in some way to this triple meaning together with reference to the ‘life-cycle’ of water: rain, clouds, mist, deluge, its seepage into the earth – to comment about cutting off supply.”


Flatline performing Sketch at Riverside Theatre, Parramatta

Flatline presents Sketch at the Riverside Theatre in Parramatta on 11 – 13 September 2014. The choreography is by Carl Sciberras, art by Todd Fuller, sound by Mitchell Mollison and performed by Roz Wythes and Katina Olsen. Visit the Riverside Theatre website to book tickets.

This performance triptych sees three dancers, a visual artist and composer transform the theatre into a hyper-sensorial world where these three mediums push and pull one another into new territory. The work converges old and new technologies to intercept lines, curves and colours with choreographic and sound scores.


News – Exhibitions, Stockroom + Art Film Night (3 July)

New in the Stockroom – Robert Boynes diptych

ebaf7d14-98a8-45ce-aa3a-c1baab20a8c0Robert Boynes’ multilayered paintings have always drawn inspiration from contemporary street culture, more recently incorporating skateboarders, hooded figures and graffiti among textured backgrounds that contain text, water, signage and lights. Capturing a sense of motion and flux, each canvas stands alone as an illusive moment in time or is configured with others to create storyboards of several filmic ‘frames’.

View more paintings in our digital stockroom.

Flatline performing at Queensland University of Technology

On Tuesday 22 July at 6:15pm, Flatline will be performing ‘Drawn Duet: True Gesture’ at The Block at QUT Creative Industries Precinct.

‘Drawn Duet: True Gesture’ invites drawing and dance to participate in an unlikely duet. Starting from a space akin to a life drawing class, a drawer commences his interrogation of the body. The body is at first a study, but as the body shifts and begins to move, the line is blurred and the body and mark exchange a rhythmic dialogue. The dancer and drawer impact and dissect each other, generating surprising results as old and new technologies collide.

‘Drawn Duet: True Gesture’ is performed by Sydney duo Flatline, visual artist Todd Fuller and choreographer Carl Sciberras. Flatline creates work that is a hybrid interaction between the mediums of Art and Dance.

Visit their website for further details.

Please note: Flatline and Represented Artist Todd Fuller will be exhibiting at Brenda May Gallery from Tuesday 9 September until Saturday 4 October and will present a spectacular ‘one night only’ performance during the opening.
