complex

I stumbled upon the work of Tatiana Plakhova,

Dubbed ‘complex graphics’, these illustrations depict “imaginary landscapes of interconnected entities”

Balance, form, light and shade, with an underlying theme of nature, mathematics and space, I have much love for these..

G(O)OOD + (D)EVIL

rabbit + cocoon, (art, fashion and music)

culture on the coast, all the good stuff

rabbit + cocoon is a new(ish) creative precinct that provides spaces and resources for motivated people to run arts practices, businesses and events that contribute towards the Gold Coast’s cultural ecology. They also stage programs and events that promote a vibrant and sustainable arts community. They are a Not-for-Profit artist-run collective.

Recently I was involved in their fashionably conscious event, where local designers showcased their wares. The night was a great success and all proceeds went to charity (in this case youngcare). It’s great to see that the Gold Coast arts scene is being fostered by initiatives such as this.. keep it up!

This little film sums up the night:

skullpture

Jacky Tsai, bringing her own brand of cool,

Portraiture by Nagi Sakai for Please! Magazine

Colour, abstraction and texture achieved by adding a paint overlay, clever

we are nature

Christoffer Relander, Finnish photographer

Double and triple exposure

Where subject (form) and nature (texture) become explicit,

the breakdown of traditional portraiture and landscape photography has been realised
