ANZAC WALK by PAUL MAHER

ANZAC WALK
Paul Maher 

THURS 25 OCT - SUN 4 NOV 2018

Official opening: Saturday 27 OCtober, 2-4pm
Beer kindly sponsored by @murraysbrewing

This recent series of paintings inspired by the landscape Paul Maher first sees from his bedroom window each morning; the ridgeline linking Newcastle’s coastal suburbs back to the city and harbour. This distinctive skyline has been recently altered to bear the Anzac Walk balanced precariously along the coastline.

Maher can see the Bridge from the front room of his house in Hamilton South. “It looks like a toy,” he says and in many respects it is a kind of play-thing at the hands of this artist. In some canvases its sweeping girth dominates; in others it recedes into or glints from the background just as it’s seen from the artist’s house. While mindful of what the Bridge commemorates, Maher is also careful not to play into cliché. The Bridge has already become an icon of Newcastle and a significant tourist attraction. Generally it is a lookout platform to be photographed on or to photograph from rather than being itself the photograph’s subject.

excerpt from Memorial Drive written for Maher's exhibition at John Hunter Hospital by Maurice O'Riordan, former editor of Art Monthly Australia magazine from 2008 to 2013 and director of the Northern Centre for Contemporary Art, Darwin 2013 to 2017.

HEADS and other things
PETER LANKAS 

THURS 11 OCT - SUN 21 OCT 2018

Official opening: Saturday 13 October, 2-4pm
Beer kindly sponsored by @murraysbrewing 

“The internet has had a huge influence on the way I work. Popular culture is absorbed, found and investigated with great speed and this in turn has I think, produced a faster changing concept base.

The iPad has hugely changed my working process, having returned to studies and sketches as when I used sketchbooks (which were gradually phased out by my long-term studio of 18 years). I have returned to the sketchbook, which is now my ipad as a studio on the run, having opportunity to sketch and make studies for paintings, anywhere and anytime. “
~ Peter Lankas 2018
extract from Artist Statement

The figure, the servo and art of Peter Lankas

Melinda McMillan | OCTOBER 4 2018 - 1:08PM | www.newcastlestar.com.au
AN exhibition of works, Heads and Other Things, by Newcastle artist Peter Lankas will open at Gallery 139 this month. 

The show will pull together works created while teaching life drawing classes, including a series of portraits. Many of the works were initially sketched using an iPad, before being fleshed out onto canvas in oil paint.

Clare Weeks 
Clare is a Photomedia artist working primarily in digital and performance video art. She has been a practicing artist for over 15 years and has shown in solo and group exhibitions Australia wide. She teaches in photomedia at the University of Newcastle (UoN) and previously at Newcastle Art School (Hunter Street TAFE). She is currently undertaking a Doctor of Philosophy (Fine Art) Postgraduate Degree at the University of Newcastle where her topic of research is theatre and the medicalised self.

Peta Lumley is captivated by the beauty of the body as an instrument in communicating between internal and external environments. Through improvised performance and photography mediums, Peta explores and expresses emotions, dreams and memories; capturing the essence of the ephemeral through movement, gesture and play.

Her latest work Juno embodies the themes of fertility, life force and motherhood inspired by ancient relics, deities and archetypes as she undergoes a journey of transformation. Capturing the awakening of an instinctual knowledge ingrained only within the body and psyche of a woman.

GARDEN STATE
Paintings and ceramics JO DYER 

THURS 16 AUG - SUN 26 AUG 2018

Official opening: Saturday 18 August, 2-4pm
Beer kindly sponsored by @murraysbrewing 

Garden State explores the healing relationship between nature and bereavement and is the culmination of Dyer’s practice since the unexpected death of her father in early 2015. In response to this terrible loss, Dyer felt an overwhelming need for solitude and connection to the natural world and found herself dedicated to establishing a leafy garden courtyard at her home in Mayfield.

“Having the opportunity to slow down, connect with and observe the natural world has been a deeply restorative and healing process, which in turn, has influenced my art practice. Many of these works were developed within my little garden. They both represent and respond to that space and how I feel within it. Connecting to the life in my garden helps me feel more accepting of death as part of life’s process.”

Drawn to the experiential process of art making, Dyer creates work that is deliberately expressive and emotive. She renders her figures like portals into their own emotional experiences, layering painterly details with naively depicted figures to explore themes and experiences that are both deeply personal yet universal, such as connection, love, vulnerability and loss.

All artwork from this exhibition will be available for sale by 32auctions.com/gardenstate during the exhibition period, with 10% of sales being donated to Global Gardens of Peace

Nature at the heart of art born from grief

AUGUST 10 2018 - 11:30AM | AUGUST 10 2018 - 11:30AM | newcastlestar.com

FROM deep grief has come a collection of works from Newcastle artist Jo Dyer. 

In March 2015, Dyer’s father Dr Ross Dyer drowned at Bar Beach. He was an emergency doctor at the John Hunter Hospital. 

“My father was a big nature lover, he loved the bush and he loved the beach,” Dyer said. “He was quite adventurous and was passionate about nature and connected to nature. 

“It might sound strange, but I think he died the way he would  have preferred to die doing something he loved, out in the waves.

“Following his death I felt this intense desire for solitude. 

“I did spend time in the studio but felt this intense need to connect with nature. I did that through gardening.

FRAGMENTS
by Peter Lankas
SHEFFER GALLERY 

WED 15 AUG - SAT 25 AUG 2018

Official opening: Wednesday 15 August, 6-8pm
Beer kindly sponsored by @murraysbrewing 

Peter describes this exhibition as “Fragments of time sewn together”, where out of the most mundane can arise an insight into an object or subject which can excite, stimulate and entertain. For Peter his paintings are narratives or songs that have evolved over years of painting. He talks about being both fascinated and fearful of the task of throwing fragments of thought together in a medium (painting) that has such long history and tradition.

Peter has completely submerged himself in the alchemy of painting. He now makes his own oil paint, mediums, varnishes, glazes, the whole basic painting kitchen, from scratch. As it was done in the early Renaissance, using where he can natural materials. It is the pleasure of discovery, the tactile experience of a chef with a hint of rudimentary science that has Peter hooked. Over the years, Peter has refined the process making it simple and versatile beyond belief.

Peter Lankas Yellow car 2018 oil on board 28 x 35.5cm $450.00

Peter Lankas is a Newcastle based artist who is fascinated with the everyday, specifically suburbia, exploring the formal visual feasts and subtle narratives on offer inside the ordinary. His painting practice extends from the studio to the outdoors, exploring the ‘en plein air’ tradition of painting outin the landscape. This direct approach to painting has led him to adopt the ‘alla prima technique’ in the studio, mostly completing paintings in one session, which enhances the concept of capturing a brief moment in time.

Ganguddy, or Dunns Swamp, is near Rylstone on the western edge of Wollemi National Park. Wollemi National Park is the second largest national park in NSW, after Kosciuszko National Park, and is part of the Greater Blue Mountains Wilderness Area.
Despite its name, it isn't a swamp at all. It is a beautiful, serene waterway on the Cudgegong River. It would have been more swamp-like when it was named, before Kandos Weir was built between 1925 and 1932.
At that time the river was dammed to provide water for the nearby Kandos Cement works.
With its glass-like reflective waters and steep rock escarpments, the "swamp" is more of a peaceful wilderness area. The dam has extensive reed beds on the sides and is bordered by sheer sandstone cliffs, pagoda rock formations, woodlands of eucalypts, angophoras and native cypress pines. 
The area has a long Wiradjuri history. Its indigenous name is Ganguddy, which means "good place" and it was once a birthing area for Aboriginal women.
The “darkness” of these paintings is 2 fold – the shadows cast by the rock formations, and the tragic killing of the Indigenous people who lived in the area. 
By abstracting the landscape it allows me to expressively blend both the visual characteristics of place with personal feelings, experience and knowledge. So that each painting has it’s own life and individuality– to capture a sense of place which is personal, but also speaks to the viewer.

The Prime Ingredient in a Big Piece of Pi (π) - Panel # 43 (12,288 - 12,586) 2017, 94 x 58cm

The nature of my art practice consists of wall-hung, timber relief sculptural panels. These pieces are created by incorporating mathematical formulas, theorems & sequences. This art form I’ve developed advocates pure abstraction in an attempt to synthesize a design aesthetic.

In The Prime Ingredient in a Big Piece of Pi (π),Panel # 41 (11,681 – 11,985 digits); Panel # 42 (11,986 – 12,287); & Panel # 43 (12,288 – 12,586),I have encoded and carved the panels with 906 digits of the Pi number (which represents the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter). Within this sequence, I have highlighted (with the Prime colours), the first four single digit Prime numbers (2, 3, 5, 7) contained within them, in an exploration of the aesthetic in Number Theory. 

By looking into the realm of pure mathematics, there lies within a beauty which transcends its usual form. 

A quote comes to mind which encapsulates this synergy between mathematics and art:

Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty — a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture.” Bertrand Russell, philosopher and mathematician

The pieces I’ve created are formulated to capture this beauty.

Malcolm Sands, the need to make art
by Melinda McMillian 

The Newcastle Star MAY 16 2018 - 1:52PM

NEWCASTLE painter Malcolm Sands has always had the “creative urge”. 

In childhood that was expressed through model aircraft and diorama making.

“I was right into super-detailing,” he said. “I should probably have become a sculptor.”

It was not until the mid-1990s that he began to make visual art. It was after discovering Anne Von Bertouch gallery.

Amongst the sedges, snow grass and twisting eucalypts of the swamps, heavy in winter fog, there is a quietness that enters me. Summer meadows, where the long shadows of mountain gums reach for one another and delicate flowers bloom at their feet lights a warmth under my skin. The opportunity to sit with a landscape, quietly within it, and just be with it, is something that is most precious to me. Recently I’ve engaged with the Barrington wilderness areas across the top sub-alpine plateau. Walking for hours in the light rain and mist, finding fallen giants laid to rest in the forest, or peering into the depths of streams that are liquid glass, icy and pure, with streaks of fresh green weed dancing in the light. Rugged up, knee deep in a land whose beauty relies on nothing from me, coloured marks allow me to record a meditation of place. It is here a submission to the wonders of a landscape that simply exists outside of us, in all its rarity and abundance, becomes a contemplation on an insatiable appreciation for the complexity of nature and its sublime existence. - Michelle Tear June 2018

The Hinterland Series came about as a result of a three day workshop last September at Knockrow in the Byron Bay Hinterland with well known landscape artist Tim Allen. I have admired his large works, mainly in oils, capturing expansive vistas whist retaining the energy of his 'plein air' studies.  The three days were spent making preparatory charcoal sketches, 'plein air' studies with watercolour and acrylics, and some more large scale works in the studio. The expansive views from the elevated studio enabled me to get a feeling for the formation of the land and how to express the shapes within with paint and brush. I used beeswax as a medium for my oils and worked quickly to retain the vitality of my brushstrokes and intensity of colour - Sally Reynolds June 2018

These multiple exposure photographs were made 'in camera' by shooting 3
consecutive images over the top of each other. The technique, while
simple to perform, relies on technical understanding of the exposure
process, an awareness of the compositional possibilities and a certain
degree of good fortune. The images were made in Tokyo, Japan primarily
around the Shibuya Crossing area and Omote Sandō and seek to describe

WE CAN ASSIST WITH PROFESSIONAL FRAMING OF ANY WORKS ON PAPER OR PAINTINGS IN THIS EXHIBITION  

Embedded brings Caelli Jo Brooker, Alison Smith and Ahn Wells together for a third time, exhibiting their most recent work and exploring some of the key motifs and forms embedded within the trio’s ongoing creative work and exhibition collaborations.

As each artist works in parallel, trusting the outcomes of the other, the curious and subliminal layers of unintentional collaboration are most revealed through the exhibition and installation processes itself, as unconscious connections emerge through the processes of drawing familiar, but idiosyncratic practices together.

In framing these different perspectives, Embedded also represents the third installment of shared exhibition titles themed through identifying ‘states’ such as ‘turning over’ and ‘conditional’. The latest theme describes the shared and embedded state of creative preoccupation with aspects of abstraction, repetition, symbol, shape, form, pattern, distillation and line, and the collective process of trusting the evolving exploration of these recurrent creative strategies to materialise contrast and connection.

Caelli Jo Brooker’s new work examines cycles and processes of making, and theebb and ow of creative profession and practice. In these works, the mark operatesas a more formal creative strategy set apart from its usual role as an expressive and idiosyncratic signature. The mark is meditative and repeated, functioning deliberately as a generative mechanism for realising an image, and aligned with the designed form more than the rehearsed, or spontaneous gesture. The recurring moon motif in the work represents the ever-present, but shifting pull of the ideas that attract us and the making that compels us.

Alison Smith’s new works on paper are the most deeply personal she has produced for some time. The shapes that are referenced are the result of many years of working with particular forms and recalling lines that are deeply embedded. They reveal a distilled version of many previous explorations and examine how those abstractions could be coerced into representing emotional aspects of her current life. These forms have become a way of referencing, not just the physical world around her, but her emotional states within it.

Ahn Wells has continued to explore the mediums of drawing, textiles and ceramicswhile continuing to be in uenced by the art vocabulary of minimalism and abstractart learned during formal study. For this exhibition, she consciously combines these materials to further explore her non-objective approach to art-making. Traditional and non-traditional craft materials and techniques are used to push the ideas of repetition, order/disorder, surface manipulation and pattern formation that has remained a constant throughout her art practice.
