Consider yourself invited

I apologise for this self indulgent misuse of our blog, but you don't have a retrospective every day (thank imaginary deity).

You are invited to the opening of my retrospective and website
on Wednesday, 10 May 6-8 pm at Macquarie University Gallery

Thank you for your indulgence. As they say. Hit the Macquarie Uni Gallery link on the invite and there is a map and parking and public transport info. Basically, if you come in the main entrance at Waterloo Road, off Herring Road, then the second road on the right is Eastern Road, it's the main road through the centre of the Uni and it finishes almost on the doorstep of the Vice Chancellor's Building and that's where the Gallery is.

Re Terry Smith, when Terry and Ian Burn and Nigel Lendon all washed up back in Sydney in the late 70s a bunch of us teamed up to set up the Media Action Group which produced slide shows analysing media treatment of various political issues. They were mostly sold to unis for use in media and cultural studies courses. Terry and I are going to do a rerun of one of the slide shows, (the one on advertising was probably the best, but we may do the one on uranium mining because it is suddenly deja vu again again). Hopefully by then I can track down a few more other members of the large but now very scattered group to join in. So if any of you are out there and reading this, get in contact with me.

I was not thinking specifically of Michael Hutchence, but the general principle certainly applies.

Terrific Ian, and def not an indulgent use of the blog, go for it I say. A contingent from Loose projects is going to come along - also that image really got into my head I woke up thinking how beautifully simple and complex at the same time...theres a real layering of different ways to read whats going on.
this is what I like about Art, that its able to conjur this level of complexity.

I'm becoming obsessed with the history of ceramics lately but I have nothing articulate to say about it (yet).

im not sure about that whole "invisible artist" title. seems too self absorbed. maybe a title that focuses not on the artist but the art?

What a strange comment. I think you missed the point np. He is someone who has apparently tried to be almost anonymous most of his life yet you say too much emphasis on the artist? Do you talk about Anon's Waterlilies or Anon's Sistine Chapel ceiling? I've only seen the website, not the show, but it looks very interesting.

I never made it to the opening night, but I went bright and early and the big pieces had been put up. The Tree of Life has quite a Commodore 64 look, I liked the symbolism - open ended. Similarly the one of the mountain - it reminds me abit of Dean Bowen's work but relatively edgy. It was nice to see a textile/wall hanging too.
