Ex-Student’s Exhibition

Kim Lawler

Kim Lawler, [a former pic student]
Between Lines
Tue 29 Sep 09 to Sat 10 Oct 09

gallery hours: Tue – Fri 11am to 5pm
Sat 12pm to 4pm


“Beyond romance or nostalgia, Lawler’s lucid visual studies reveal the aesthetic beauty of the stories being written and rewritten onto this responsive and at times fragile environment.” Amy Barclay, curator

Between Lines comprises a series of aerial photographs taken in the Kimberley, far north Western Australia. This remote area is embedded with stories of Indigenous and non-Indigenous inhabitants, transitory visitors and scarred by multinational companies resource development. The artist, Kim Lawler, is concerned with markings, both natural and constructed, that tell stories of places, transitions and interruptions that occur within the landscape.

Between Lines is informed by Lawler’s experience of living in these regions and local perspectives on the displacement of people and their consequential relationship to the land that has taken place. It is also informed by the opposing qualities of abandon and connection that occur as the stories within these landscapes continue to unfold.

Important; AND interesting upcoming shows

2009-08-03 — posted by at 01:10

Stuart here. Yes folks I am back. Looking forward to hearing your stories of creative adventure you’ve undertaken while I was gone.

Here are some shows I think yo should see next week.

Liu Xiao Xian: From East to West

One of the most compelling contemporary Chinese Australian artists, Liu Xiao Xian explores the nuances between East and West with playfulness and wit, revealing some profound differences as well as shared concerns and values. Born in China and raised during the Cultural Revolution, Liu Xiao Xian left Beijing for Sydney after the Tiananmen Square Massacre. On this twentieth anniversary of Tiananmen, it is fitting that RMIT Gallery is focusing on his photographs and sculptures which explore the subtleties of his diasporic experiences. The exhibition will include chess sets that incorporate Australian indigenous animals and introduced species, large scale portraits of Buddha comprised of images of Jesus, and stereographic images with Liu’s face superimposed that highlight the relative invisibility of Asians in Australian settler history.

New Scientist Eureka Science Photography Prize 2009

Richmond, Victoria, Australia

The next exhibition at Town Hall Gallery begins on Wednesday 8 July and runs until Sunday 2 August 2009.

The Family Mould continues photographer Ilona Nelson’s current exploration of self identity. Prompted by the birth of her first child, Nelson uses her artistic practice to focus on her family history, demonstrating that the deeply personal is in many cases the universal. Her selectively hand coloured photographs reinterpret images from her family album by re-photographing them in a contemporary context.
