But wait there’s more. Continue reading “Magic Object part 2”
I wouldn’t describe myself as a art groupie, and I only have two friends who I would consider a real participator in the arts circles of Adelaide, but none the less I am an art appreciator. So when I heard about the Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art was set to grace the floors of the Art Gallery of South Australia, I couldn’t resist but to visit, not once but twice.
Magic Object is the theme of this years biennial and it exhibition does not stop at the Art Gallery of South Australia, but extends to the Anne & Gordon Samtag Museum of Art at the University of South Australia, JamFactory, Carrick Hill and the Santos Museum of Economics.
I would like to introduce you to the Bowerbird Bazaar. It has become a gem within the Adelaide community, and its main intention is to connect local designers, artist and sellers to the local Public. A big Etsy market if you will, a hub to support entrepreneur within design, and when Christmas comes around, it is usually the busiest place to be.
A good friend of mine, Haneen Martin – Founder of Zombie Queen and Consulting, has been working very hard over the last couple of years. She has been doing many jobs, still finishing her architecture degree and she is on her way of becoming a house hold name within the artist circles, and yesterday I was able to get some time on my hands and head down to her latest curating gig for YYK —> ADL (From Yogyakarta to Adelaide)
“We are all mortal until the first kiss and the second glass of wine”
You get to those days where inspiration is hard to come by. There is no doubt in my mind that it is like the ocean, it comes and goes with each passing moon. Until you finally decided to give it a break and then it hits you like a tidal wave, engulfing you, and sometimes to a point where its all too much, and you lose it again.
There was a time in my adolescent and childish years that I thought creativity and inspiration was something you can max out like a credit card. That you need to cherish each one and try not to overload yourself, because you might burn out. However I have grown out of that, and realize that sometimes you just need another person’s opinion, or completely different environment to expand your thoughts and let it drift on its on for a while, that or a bottle wine. Whichever you choose.
(The photo above was taken on a recent road trip I had with one of my cousin’s and my sister to the Flinders Rangers. It was a long drive, but worth it. Hopefully I will get them all edited for a post soon 🙂 fingers cross)
I thought I would do a little quick blog mention about the first solo exhibition of Bronte Stolz, hosted and run by Zombie Queen Art & Consulting, which is exhibiting within the Adelaide CBD at the Floating goose.
