The people whom I’m really responding to at the moment are people who haven’t been at the forefront of my mind before.

Artist Interview: Deborah Halpern - Art Collector

People like Joan Miro and Gustav Klimt. The works of Klimt I used to think were too much and over the top … but funnily enough it’s really having an impact on me right now. For example, the way he puts his peaceful figures in the middle of this fantastic over-the-top design with colour … the contrast really represents life as it really is for me. As an artist, I’ve been working for a long time now and I see artists who are doing works that are a commentary on something, or coming from an academic point of view, and I look at those works and sometimes I may not understand them or I may not respond to them.

Tall Tales unearths the curiously small and enormous artworks from the museum's extensive collection of ceramics, paintings, works on paper, sculpture and contemporary art. Inspired by the ideas of Susan Stewart in her critical text On Longing: Narratives of the Miniature, the Gigantic, the Souvenir, the Collection (1993), Tall Tales examines how we relate to big things and little things, and reflects upon the fascinating and absurd relationships we build with objects through stories and imagination. Featuring work by Brook Andrew, Benjamin Armstrong, Stanislav Halpern, Lorraine Jenyns, Sir John Longstaff, Caroline Rothwell, Alexandra Standen, Stefan Szonyi and more.

"The thing that is important for me is they couldn't reject my opinion ... I couldn't come to another country myself, but my idea and my thought can go. " Robin Gibson Gallery: Sandra Taylor. From Powerhouse Museum, Sydney Sandra Taylor (b. 1942) trained at East Sydney Technical College in 1965-66, and in the early 1970s moved away from making functional wares in the Anglo-Oriental style, towards making painted and modelled narratives of Australian life.

Robin Gibson Gallery: Sandra Taylor

These have usually been humorously and critically observant of some aspect of Australian ‘norms’, and over the years she has made these observations through metaphors as diverse as pigs, savaloys, palm trees, dogs, cattle, houses, swimming pools and pencil pines. The Museum has some modelled works from 1979. This plate is the culmination of a 1992 series ‘Yarns from the Bush’, made after Taylor had moved to Buccarumbi in northern NSW.

The miniature world draws us closer, and invites us to investigate. CoCo Contemporary Connoisseur. Elodie Barker is a well-known professional ceramic artist.

Ah Xian, Ancient crafts, contemporary practice - a new language of art, interview. Ah Xian, Ancient crafts, contemporary practice - a new language of art, interview Ah Xian is a Chinese-Australian contemporary artist interested in the human body and how contemporary craft can make it meaningful.

Ah Xian uses many different techniques and materials, based on ancient Chinese crafts skills, including porcelain, cloisonne, lacquer, jade, ox-bone inlay and bronze as well as concrete. His most recent work is a new body of bronze casts. Craft Australia asked Ah Xian about sustainability both in his contemporary art practice and for traditional Chinese craftsmanship as well as about the themes of urban displacement and cultural remembrance in his works.

Interview with Dr John Yu AC. Resources: An Australian with a Chinese Face. Dr John Yu Portrait Profile Dr John Yu AC is widely known for his association with the Children’s Hospital at Westmead. His achievements as an outstanding paediatrician and administrator were nationally recognised in 1996 when he was named Australian of the Year. Dr Yu also had the distinction of being the first Asian-Australian to be publicly honoured in this way. ‘I am proud of my Chinese heritage', he declared, ‘but even prouder to be an Australian.’ Dr Yu was born in Nanking, China, in 1934. Westmead departs from the sterile white clinic that signalled institutional medicine a generation ago. It is hardly a surprise to learn that a high achiever like Dr Yu has published fifty scientific articles based on research in his speciality area and on management practice but he has also a respectable list of publications on the decorative arts.

Ah Xian first came to Australia in 1989 as artist in residence at the School of Art, University of Tasmania in Hobart.
