Just back from a Gallery crawl with Frantz [link]
and Helen [link]
starting with the Vienna: Art & Design [link]
exhibition at the Victorian National Gallery. It was a chance to get an up close look at original paintings of two of my early influences Egon Shiele and Gustav Klimt. Close enough to make the guard's panties bunch up and get in the way of the people strutting around with headphones taking the audio tour. I thought it would be funny if the tour walked them into a blank corner and told them how interesting it was for an hour.
Then the crawl continued to FanBoy vs. ArtBoy gallery [link]
where we saw their Superhero exhibition and chatted with Mark the proprietor about the possibility of showing work. They are doing a Science fiction group show in Dec. this year.
The Gallery is in Prahran near my old studio off Chapel Street, it was hard for me to get my bearings, the area had changed so much.
