Art Al­manac

Art Almanac - - News -

Oc­to­ber 2018

We ac­knowl­edge and pay our re­spect to the many Abo­rig­i­nal na­tions across this land, tra­di­tional cus­to­di­ans, El­ders past and present; in par­tic­u­lar the Guringai peo­ple of the Eora Na­tion where Art Al­manac has been pro­duced.

Why are we here? Be­ing a hu­man on planet Earth seems to pre­oc­cupy the artists in this is­sue; from the pas­sage of time in the work of Jenny Sages to Halinka Orszu­lok’s ob­ser­va­tion that the tran­si­tion of night­fall al­ters space in mys­te­ri­ous ways. Rob McHaffie has cre­ated some of his most lit­eral paint­ings to date, as he says ‘I don’t think sur­re­al­ism re­ally touches upon the weird­ness of ev­ery­day life. What we’ve con­structed as hu­mans is worth look­ing at and re­flect­ing upon.’ We also con­sider the ground where life un­folds in ‘Oceans From Here’ and Ali­cia Frankovich’s show ‘Ex­o­planet’ which in­ves­ti­gate the An­thro­pocene.
