The Weekend Post - Cairns Eye - - Front Page - Cairns Re­gional Gallery AN­DREW BONNEAU: RE­CENT DRAW­INGS AND PAINT­INGS Un­til De­cem­ber 18 Un­til Jan­uary 7

Also on Fri­day and again on Satur­day, Cairns Lit­tle Theatre pre­sents an orig­i­nal Christ­mas pan­tomime at The Rondo Theatre. This tale pro­vides the back­story be­hind one of the great Christ­mas mys­ter­ies – just how does Santa get to every boy and girl, world­wide, in one night? At­ten­dees are en­cour­aged to provide an un­wrapped present or non-per­ish­able food­stuff which will be do­nated to the Sal­va­tion Army at the con­clu­sion of the run. Visit www.therondo.com.au for show times. ht An­drew Bonneau is a young emerg­ing artist who lives and works in Cairns. Since his stud­ies at the Na­tional Art School in Sydney, the Char­lie Sheard Stu­dio School and the Ju­lian Ash­ton Art School, Bonneau has fo­cussed on por­trai­ture and fig­ure paint­ing. For Bonneau, a por­trait is the most in­ter­est­ing and chal­leng­ing sub­ject. Sim­i­lar to por­traits of the Re­nais­sance pe­riod, his painted fig­ures em­body much of a clas­si­cal re­al­ist tra­di­tion. Cairns-based artist Ser­ena Kur­ing’s ex­pe­ri­ence of synes­the­sia is trans­lated through her lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion. A cur­rent PhD can­di­date at James Cook Univer­sity, Kur­ing ex­plores synes­the­sia’s au­to­mated, in­vol­un­tary sen­sory re­sponse trig­gered by the stim­u­la­tion of an­other sen­sory path­way. The works on pa­per trans­late Kur­ing’s vis­ual ex­pe­ri­ence of mu­sic through the use of line and colour. Through this she en­cour­ages con­sid­er­a­tion of the di­ver­sity of un­der­stand­ing of re­al­ity by oth­ers.
