Performing, Creating and Collaborating

BY CHRISTOPHER ALLERY
@ VOL 18 ON AUG 24, 2016

Christopher Allery has had a 20 year creative career that has focused on the art of collaboration. This began with an art show during his second year of his Bachelor of Arts (Visual Art). Staged at the Majestic Theatre in Pomona, Chris worked with fellow friends and fellow undergrads to create an immersive installation and performance incorporating found objects, artificial light, and original music which was performed on the Majestic’s grand piano. Now Chris has a number of established aesthetic and conceptual collaborations ranging from his photographic collaboration titled PASTLIFE with artist James Prowse, to the What We Do In The Dark performance based annual events at The Junk Bar in Ashgrove, Brisbane to now curating massive dance party events.  He also likes returning to his home town of Cooroy to host intimate backyard events featuring talented creatives from South East Queensland. The collaborative relationships that Chris has explored since that first rich experience have been fruitful but also stretched him, sometimes painfully, but also professionally, creatively and personally

The Art of Abstract Comics

BY KYM TABULO
@ VOL 18 ON AUG 24, 2016

Kym Tabulo works in the field of abstract comics.  This is an emerging 21st century genre that combines the conventions of traditional comics with abstract painting.  Kym creates works on canvas and paper using a range of formats, scales, techniques and media. Her pioneering work experiments with the idea that dynamic, organic movement and growth can be conveyed in a single image or a sequence of images, to create a sense of movement that also suggests the passage of time. Her process is a combination of intuitive and planned art making. The intention of her work is to generate a visual rhythm rather than tell a story, however others may wish to invent their own story or find a theme.

Memory Imprints of PNG

BY ULRIKE STURM
@ VOL 18 ON AUG 24, 2016

Ulrike Sturm is a visual artist whose work focuses on artist’s books, printmedia and visual narratives. As a teen Ulrike lived in the Highlands of PNG. The impact of that amazing experience never really left her and she cherished the vivid childhood memories she had of those years. It is perhaps strange then, that she didn’t go back there for such a long time, only once until two months ago. Ulrike’s Pecha Kucha talk is therefore about her recent trip to PNG, what adventures she encountered, and how all this relates to her creative practice as a visual artist.  This includes her ephemeral vinyl artworks – many of which draw on memory and are destroyed at the end of the exhibit.

Fragility, Flowers and Contemporary Portraits

BY GREER TOWNSHEND
@ VOL 18 ON AUG 24, 2016

Hailing from New Zealand Greer Townshend’s primary practice is drawing.  Her work is frequently underpinned by the concept of fragility, whether related to the process of memory, language or the self.  Her practice combines portraiture and elements of nature, inferring an inherent connection between the two, and denoting life cycles. Greer will be talking about her take on ‘creating’ contemporary portraiture including her current fascination with all things 'flowering'.
