CURTIN - Book and Show

I've got some pictures in a show called Curtin at Seventh gallery right now (155 Gertrude St, Fitzroy, Melbourne). Three little paintings in a row. They're also in a book of the same name that's floating around.

28 April – 14 May 2011

Opens Thursday 28th April 6-8 pm

Curated by Andie Tham and Johann Rashid.

Featuring Artists Dan Moynihan, James Eisen, Martin Bell, Andie Tham, Beci Orpin, Kate Moss, Rowan McNaught, Jarrah De Kuijer, Stephanie Hughes and Johann Rashid.

Curtin is a recent survey of ten emerging artists, who all site sourced and found material as the starting point of image making and technical process. Linking themes and joining narratives through juxtaposition of high and low brow imagery, this exhibition aims to be a fun exploration of different modes in contemporary culture. Curtin is a group of friends, who’s work directly addresses their surroundings. Inspired by found and sourced imagery from the internet, magazines, old books, and film, these processes involve conscientious cropping, collaging, and re-appropriation.

Boomgates, Human Rights Arts and Film Festival

Here's a Boomgates 7 inch cover, and Human Rights Arts & Film Festival poster that have come out in the time i've been touring. I've had an amazing two months driving across Australia and USA. Meeting buffaloes in Yellowstone National Park and crazy inbred cats and great humans.

This Boomgates 7'' is out now through San Francisco based label SmartGuy Records...featuring the tunes 'Nothing' and 'Layman's Terms'. Find out more about that here -


And this poster is part of a body of work I did for the Human Rights Arts and Film Festival crew (hard workers), it includes a Festival Program that's floating around out there. You should get to every part of this festival you can! There's some total gem events they're getting together - movies, music, forums, etc - i've always gotten a lot out of it.
