The solar powered work, Field of Light Uluru, was produced by artist Bruce Munro who conceived of the idea while visiting Uluru in 1992. Twelve years later he created its first iteration in a field behind his home, and it has since moved the work around to several different sights across the United Kingdom, United States, and Mexico. Field of Light was a project that refused to leave the artist’s sketchbook. AMY JOY WATSON. Paper Cut Light Box Fairytale Art Posters.

Deepti Nair and Harikrishnan Panicker, two artists collectively known as Hari & Deepti, create beautiful and detailed dioramas out of paper that look like epic visions from ancient fairytales. The basic method behind these dioramas is very simple – it is Hari & Deepti’s mastery of their craft that makes them so beautiful. Stephanie Crase - BMG ART.

Guy Maestri. Katharina Grosse. HOSSEIN VALAMANESH : GREENAWAY ART GALLERY : ADELAIDE AUSTRALIA. My ongoing fascination with the written word is evident in this exhibition and I hope that the work here extends the conversation I started in my last show at Greenaway Art Gallery.


After my explorations with saffron and the word ‘love’ (eshg in Farsi / Persian) I became aware of the associations between text and colour - the yellow of madness and love. Life blood, 2010, gave me the opportunity to play with this coincidence. In Farsi text the word for blood (khun) and the casual expression for life (jun) are identical except for the position of one dot adding to the work’s ambiguity. Guardian, 2010, is a collaborative work with Angela Valamanesh, inspired by one of her earlier works history, 1993.

JENNY WATSON : GREENAWAY ART GALLERY : ADELAIDE AUSTRALIA. By chance I met Pat and Howard Frederick in 1991 when I was planning my first show in New York.


I met them in Albury, NSW, where they had been living for some years. They were about to return to the United States and invited me to come to Tucson, Arizona after my opening in New York. As a completely New York obsessed artist the rest of the USA was ‘til then a complete blur, but I took them up on their invitation. The plane descended in the vast desert with blue mountains framing the background, an old rusty steel tower with ramshackle letters announced TUCSON. I fell in love with the place immediately. The works in Undercover were made last December/January in the Tucson winter - blue skies, cold mornings, sunny days and walking from inside to outside studio spaces.

These chemical cocktails [embedded in the paintings] can no longer reach the brain through the bloodstream and must take a different route to altering perception.

Home. IVAN ALIFAN - Artist, Oil Painter. Contemporary Figurative Paintings by Marcus Callum. Ellen Altfest. Since leaving Yale School of Art Ellen Altfest has developed her own distinct and devoted approach to a figurative and representational painting.

Ellen Altfest

The writer and artist David Humphrey’s describes ‘her paintings celebrate the way objects become engulfed by their surroundings and simple acts of identification multiply and transform’. Altfest always paints from life, drawn towards domestic plants, vegetables and more recently, male models. Altfest immerses herself in an intense analysis and personal engagement with the subject that pushes her vision beyond the real. Compositionally the paintings are all tightly edited and framed, almost encroaching on the subject’s space whether it be the nucleus of tumbleweed through to the wrinkled skin of a cacti next to the neckline of the sitter.

Ellen Altfest received an MFA from Yale University. Tom Moore.
