With things winding down a bit now, I found some time to get a few updates up. Check out the drawings and watercolours; some new, some recently displayed, in the WORK section. Cheers.

the funk back to the drum…
If you’re in Melbourne over the next week, you should spare time to get down to Drew Funk’s latest exhibit Black Linings at the No-Vacancy QV Space. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make it to the opening and have a chat about the work, but caught the show last weekend, and spent a peaceful afternoon looking into his mythical, eastern inspired world. With over 70 pieces ranging in size on display, he has obviously been really busy; my favourites amongst the lot were undoubtedly the larger, layered pieces, each having hundreds, (maybe thousands) of his signature style animals forming giant animal silhouettes in classical poses. Although most of his ‘guardian’ like animals are influenced by eastern mythology and folklore, it was great to see the ‘mozzie’ make an appearance in a humorous homage to the unsung Australian icon. Drew Funk’s show runs until the 7th of April. For more info, visit the No-Vacancy website.
Thanks to everyone who could make it down to see VISITOR last Thursday. The response was overwhelming! And a big thanks to everyone who bought a postcard for the Japan Red Cross too, all your donations will go straight to the relief workers in earthquake and tsunami stricken areas.
VISITOR has finished, but you can check out photos from the opening at the No-Vacancy Gallery website. Cheers.
No doubt, everyone has seen the news. It’s hard to describe the feeling of distress, loss and general helplessness in Japan at the moment. But to support those that can really help people effected by the earthquakes and tsunami, I’m hoping to get some donations together. There will be some art postcards available at the reception desk, and after the show a percentage of the profits from sales will be donated to the Red Cross in Japan, currently helping those caught up in the affected areas.
After several long months and many a long night, I am very happy to announce my first solo show, “Visitor” at No-Vacancy in Melbourne, Australia. Hope to see you there at the opening, Thursday the 17th. Cheers. Sean.
