Kate Smith September 19


  War is so now… When Kate Smith’s Headspace was in production, however, she couldn’t possibly have imagined just how topical her content would become. The very day of Kate’s opening Aussie troops are off to Iraq for round three. Headspace is a construction (read installation) of drawings and objects, and drawings as objects, that takes over the entire Manuka […]

Susan Buret September 04


Not too much on the walls at CCAS Manuka at the moment and that’s because its floored !

His highly expressive paintings and drawings come with traces of Bacon, Hockney and Freud, an extraordinary lineage but Sacha has stepped up to the plate. Perhaps […]

Collette Brennan, Michael Cook and William Yang August 19


  Mick called into the opening of William Yang’s My Generation at Andrew Baker Art Dealer on Friday night and left with some stunning photos.    

Dan Vukovljak, Shane Breynard and Ann McMahon August 16

There is a set […]
