In the Studio with Simon Reece

Justin Morrissey chats to Simon Reece about his up coming show at the Cultural Centre. 



Simon Reece: Flotsam and jetsam

29 June – 11 August

Simon Reece’s exhibition Flotsam and jetsam is about rubbish, debris, detritus and how it impacts us but also reflects us and who we are. In the universe, cosmik debris is scattered throughout. This space waste becomes the building blocks for the universe itself. Something bigger is formed from this rubbish. However, our climate malaise is brought about by waste which is also creating something bigger. In this case, large blooms of jellyfish are appearing and highlight the detrimental warming of the oceans and the collapse of ecosystems.

At the centre of Reece’s new body of work, which includes ceramic and mixed media sculptural objects, sits a large scale jellyfish bloom giving shape to the terrifying beauty that is consuming our oceans. Small pieces of natural sponge collected from the beaches are made into cosmik debris, highlighting the wonder of the universe and how we inhabit it, and how repurposing our waste can be transformative.

ARTHouse Podcast | March 21st | Sean O’Keeffe (Fake Shemp) talks to Gary Caganoff ‘Give A Dam’

ARTHouse Podcast | March 21st | Sean O'Keeffe (Fake Shemp) talks to Gary Caganoff, director of documentary 'Give A Dam'.
If you missed ARTHouse on the 21st of March and you haven't seen the documentary Give A Dam by Gary Caganoff you now have the opportunity to do both online! Listen to the interview here on PodBean and then watch this important documentary about New South Wales government's intention to raise the Warragamba Dam wall, and flood 65 km of the river, destroying wilderness, animal habitats and flora, on the Give a Dam website using the Film link.
It showcases the spectacular landscapes under threat and the people who are devoting their lives to save it. You should also check out the issues and reports from indigenous groups and from local residents and councils brave enough to oppose the proposal.
Also there is a very interesting theatre arts segment in the second half of the podcast with Jonathan Llewellyn from Riverside Theatres.

Julie Paterson discusses her current series, interviewed at Rough Track Cabins

Julie talks about her new series of works to be showcased at an upcoming exhibition, Edge to Edge, Landscapes on Cloth, at Lost Bear Gallery in the Blue Mountains. 

Like traditional tapestries, these artworks are on fabric and they tell a story. They are designed to hang on a wall without a frame. I print with water-based screen-printing inks, then the finished artwork is heat treated and Scotchgarded. It’s the same process I use for my commercial furnishing fabrics to make the works robust, which is why they don’t have to be framed in a traditional way.
The canvas for these artworks is commercially screen-printed industrial-quality upholstery ClothFabric. Some are linen, some are hemp, all printed by hand in regional NSW.



Early Morning at The Leap

63cm x 138cm

ink on hemp – unique state stencil print


Printed over Banksia on hemp
Generally we gather at Govetts Leap when the full moon rises, and sometimes, for the sunset. Creating this work reminded me what a good idea it is to go down to watch the sun come up with a thermos of tea.

Our regular host of ARTHouse segment Fake Shemp, Sean O’Keeffe interviews filmmaker Tom Taylor at the MTNS Made Salon

Spiteful aliens with more intelligence than humans will shortly appear in the Blue Mountains — but fortunately they will be of the digital variety only.

Leura filmmaker, producer and animator Tom Taylor is creating a 45-minute sci-fi thriller called Last Ark. Set in Katoomba, Leura, Mt Victoria and the Jamison Valley, the short film will double as the first episode of a crowd-funded web series if it develops a following.

 The draft promotional poster for the sci-fi short film Last Ark, featuring Blue Mountains actors Damion Hunter, Georgia Adamson and Josef Ber. Image: Tom Taylor.

Written and funded by Mr Taylor, the thriller is set 40 years in the future in a world decimated by aliens.

The story centres on a crew of survivors left to fend for themselves in an Australian military airship. They are on a mission out of the country in the hope of finding a safe haven, but stop in the Blue Mountains where they try to rescue another survivor. 

Mr Taylor said the short film’s theme is ‘the day of judgment is what you make of it’.

“In this first episode, I’m introducing the story world and its main characters — a mix of military personnel and refugees they’ve picked up and saved. They all have their own interpretations of what’s happening around them and what they can do about it, so this creates tensions and a power struggle within the ship.”

Justin Morrissey interviews Freedom Wilson and Anna Murphy

Mycorrhizal: Futurae - Ferox – Inferius is Freedom Wilson’s new body of work which raises awareness of the endangered buttercup doubletail orchid (Diuris aequalis). 

Orchids have evolved highly complex ecological partnerships over millennia. Beneath the soil each plant species depends on a specific species of Mycorrhizal fungus for its existence. 

Wilson participated in botanical surveys and field research in the Kanangra Boyd Wilderness area and in snow gum habitat near the Wombeyan caves. 

She was guided in her research by ecologist and Saving Our Species project officer Anna Murphy from the Office of Environment and Heritage.

Visual Dispatches with Fiona Davies

Visual dispatches presented by Fiona Davies. Tonight's guest is the sound video and performance artist Naomi Oliver. Naomi is also on the board of MAPBM

The entrancing image Watercolour II, is an example of Naomi's 2D data manipulation practice which will be discussed in detail tonight. Her process is to start by responding to something in the real world when making a watercolour. This work on paper is then manipulated by digital programs to introduce distortions and blips or errors.

A long experience with performance includes her role as one of The Motel Sisters. They are currently running a Day Spa for residents at Abel Tasman Retirement Village, in partnership with the Information and Cultural Exchange (ICE)
