AUSTRALIA’S MONTHLY BRIEFING ON art

Cressida Campbell Grayson Perry Ai Weiwei

$6.00


Koorie Heritage Trust Inc ‘ G n o k a n D a n n a M u r r a K o r- k i ’


On the Cover

From the Editor Our summer issue is filled with a long rollcall of events and exhibitions to keep you busy over the warmer months. Sara Sweet tackles two big exhibition previews with the Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney’s, ‘Grayson Perry: My Pretty Little Art Career’, and the National Gallery of Victoria’s, ‘Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei’. Both artists explore, through different approaches, ideas of identity, masculinity and politics. We also preview the diverse works included in the ‘8th Asia Pacific Triennial’ on at Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art. And Melissa Pesa looks at Charles Blackman’s romantic and poetic world in ‘Lure of the Sun: Charles Blackman in Queensland’. Thanks for your support in 2015, and we look forward to bringing you more art news, briefs, events and previews in 2016.

On the Cover Cressida Campbell Somersaulting flannel flowers float against a dappled blue sky, in Cressida Campbell’s intensely personal cover work. “I drew and painted this picture during the months my husband was dying. It was the last drawing he saw of mine. I tried to give the painting a kind of heavenly mood of peace. I wanted to convey the feeling of freedom you get when lying on the grass looking up at an intense blue sky as well as a sense of movement from the flower’s dancing stalks.” Unusual perspectives, and Campbell’s talent for colour and composition, are matched by a unique process. She carves into plywood, paints them with watercolour and sprays them with water, before taking a single impression. Campbell’s work is part of the ‘Destination Sydney’ exhibition.

Art News

Destination Sydney Take nine iconic Australian artists, over 140 artworks, add three major independent Sydney galleries and you get the impressive summer show ‘Destination Sydney’. Manly Art Gallery & Museum, Mosman Art Gallery and National Trust S. H. Ervin Gallery have joined forces with curator Lou Klepac OAM for this unique exhibition. Artists in the show are: Cressida Campbell, Kevin Connor, Grace Cossington Smith, Elisabeth Cummings, Peter Kingston, John Olsen, Margaret Preston, Lloyd Rees and Brett Whiteley. Uniting the artists and the works on display is the harbour city itself. Klepac says, “Artists who live and work in a particular city tap into the immense collective energy that exists there and extract their own individual visions from it. This is the alchemy of the creative process, which produces the spirit of 38

the city. And no city has had the ability to inspire artists as Sydney has. Sydney is the city of painters and poets.” While not all the artists were born in Sydney, they have been inspired by either stints living in it, or travelling through. Lloyd Rees was on his way to Melbourne from Brisbane when his ship stopped in Sydney and he discovered the city. John Olsen was born in Newcastle but grew up in Sydney, while Sydney artist Grace Cossington Smith spent her days on the North Shore painting Sydney’s people, landscapes, buildings and events. “There has always been something magical about Sydney,” says Klepac, “and many people have fallen in love with this city, for its marvellous setting; its great sense of freedom, and the variety of its various parts, from secluded beaches, to the amazing grandeur of the Blue Mountains against which the city is set, and its marvellous weather. Who has never experienced in Sydney the stillness of a perfect day?”


Each gallery will host three artists’ work in their entirety. Manly Art Gallery & Museum will cover: Lloyd Rees, Brett Whiteley and Elisabeth Cummings. Mosman Art Gallery: John Olsen, Kevin Connor and Peter Kingston and S.H. Ervin Gallery: Margaret Preston, Grace Cossington Smith and Cressida Campbell. The exhibition draws on works from major public and private collections and hopes to give visitors access to some of the great names of Australian art, showcasing the more familiar alongside some of the more unusual and expected pieces. Alongside the exhibitions there will be poetry readings, lectures, artists talks, visits to Sydney locations that are depicted in the artist’s works.

is a kind of visual mirror of our spiritual existence. This is what this exhibition is celebrating.”

At the heart of the exhibition, Klepac says, is recognition of these artists and their contribution. “Every generation is inspired by the artists active in the immediate previous fifty years, or so. This represents the living art of our day and

Exhibition Previews

Grayson Perry: My Pretty Little Art Career by Sara Sweet

With an art practice spanning thirty years, British artist Grayson Perry has questioned ideas around ‘what constitutes art?’ He continues to intrigue those who lay eyes on his creations. Through his elaborate and decorative ceramics, sculptures, drawings, prints and tapestries, Perry has considered an expansive list of themes and subject areas. The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) will host a major survey of Perry’s work, the first in the southern hemisphere. ‘Grayson Perry: My Pretty Little Art Career’ is presented as part of the Sydney International Art Series 2015-16. This highly anticipated survey follows Grayson’s creative journey from the early 1980s to now. Curated by MCA Chief Curator, Rachel Kent, ‘Grayson Perry: My Pretty Little Art Career’ exposes a series of key themes. Kent explains, “Grayson has drawn on a range of historical precedents, as well as ideas and imagery from 46

everyday life in his art. It combines deeply personal references to his own history, family and sexual identity, as well as wider social and political commentary – for example, an exploration of class and identity in Britain today.” Transvestism has been a fundamental force in the artist’s personal and artistic life finding expression through various works in the exhibition including Precious Boys and Western Man. Perry’s feminine persona, Claire, is understood to be a ‘central plank’ in his creative identity. Kent says, “The wider exploration and complexity of masculine identity today is central through his art and life, and is something I find particularly pertinent for Australian audiences.” The exhibition brings together thirty ceramic pieces spanning the artist’s career. These have been accumulated from collections around the world. Kent says that drawing together a substantial representation of Perry’s ceramic works did come as a challenge due to their fragility and small


scale. Viewers will see some of Perry’s earliest ceramics made in 1983, when he attended night pottery classes in London. His playfully charming and brightly illustrated ceramics outlay a construction of narratives that deviate from the artist’s personal reflections to political references and comments. Kent says, “Also on display are the artist’s sculptures in iron and brass, his prints, the tapestries he has been making since the 2000s, and a host of other material including sketch books, drawings, plus selected costumes and photographs that give a wider context to his art practice.” References are made to Alan Measles; Perry’s childhood teddy bear, which became a substitute father figure during his childhood days. Kent says that the bear came to represent “an all powerful, protective demi-god with his own religion of tolerance, or ‘holding one’s beliefs lightly’.” The MCA provides a space where people can tap into Perry’s world and see some of the influences that determined his projects. The survey delivers an expansive overview of Perry’s career, and Kent hopes that people will, “find many surprises, from the extraordinary craftsmanship of some of the objects themselves, as well as their aesthetic power, to the social and political messages they contain. Grayson describes his works as ‘stealth bombs’; they draw you in visually, then deliver their message, with humour, pathos and precision.”

Exhibition Briefs

Jumaadi Confessions

Joan Ross 20-50% off all plants & animals

These are ‘Confessions’ not to God, nor to a court, but perhaps to the audience of art, including Jumaadi himself, as to what is honest or less so in his practice. For this exhibition Jumaadi employs a variety of media, in works made in a number of different countries: buffalo hide, paper, canvas and wood, crafted in the US, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Northern Territory, and Mosman.

Curated by Rilka Oakley, ‘20-50% off all plants & animals’ showcases a selection from Joan Ross’ extensive repertoire including drawing, sculpture and video.

Teak panels came from the dismantled wall of an old eastern Javanese house. As is so often the case these works relate to Jumaadi’s ongoing deconstruction of history, memory and myth.

Her works are both satirical and disarming while addressing serious issues including ownership, surveillance, fear and boundaries. Her trademark use of fluoro is prevalent as are her kangaroo fur fashion items. Ross’ aesthetic is visually pleasing and yet confronting, reminding us of our colonial history and the ongoing repercussions of that history.

James Gleeson centenary: works from the collection

Marina Strocchi: a survey, 1991-2015

This exhibition celebrates 100 years since the birth of Australia’s foremost surrealist painter and poet, James Gleeson (1915-2008). Drawn from the Gallery’s own collection of the artist’s work, this exhibition looks at Gleeson’s remarkable legacy through a selection of paintings, drawings and studies for paintings.

Lingering between abstraction and landscape, Marina Strocchi’s paintings are rich evocations of her experiences of living in the Central Australian desert. This survey exhibition is a study of Strocchi’s reflection on life in the Red Centre and Top End as well as its surrounds.

Gleeson’s art explores the human condition beyond visible reality, the senses, reason and the conscious mind. Inspired by writers and artists of the surrealist movement, including Salvador Dali and Max Ernst, Gleeson utilised poetry, dreams, mythology and chance elements as material for his work. His late paintings extend his psychological concerns beyond humanism to a cosmic experience of nature in constant evolution.

Melbourne-born Strocchi has lived in Central Australia for the past 20 years. Her paintings and prints are laden with iconic motifs of jabiru, fish, windmills, buffalo, feral cats, mangroves and mulga. Renditions that trace human activity, such as mining, travelling tracks, windmills and implements of industry and effort, indicate the post-colonial additions to the Territory landscape, complete with flora and fauna.
