The Paper Bag Award Show

Cross Gallery
Opening July 18 

Electra Street


My bags are each made from twelve supermarket brown paper lunch bags that have been pulled apart and reconstructed. They are rock hard. 



Paper Bag, 2020, oil on paper, 21 x 28 x 8 cm.

The bag ‘painting’ is based on a memory of sugar coated candy. When I was at high school I had a part time job bagging candy for Coles in Bourke Street, Melbourne.


Many thanks to the award judge John Greenhaigh for selecting 'Paper Bag' as the winner!
There are so many great entries from around the world.


Black Stripe Bag, 2020, 21 x 25 x 14 cm.


This bag painting is based on the memories of the bags you get when you buy fine art materials.

Then and Now


Artist' Luck, 2020, mobile selfie.


Frederick McCubbin. Down on His Luck, 1889, oil on canvas, 115 x 153 cm (detail).


These times are being likened to the 1930s Great Depression. The 1890s were also a time of Depression after the Land Boom. I live where the Australia Impressionists painted.

Image_ Object, examines the relationship between the visual and the physical in non-objective works. Most artworks, it can be argued, are fusions of imagery and objecthood. This exhibition reveals an increasing emphasis upon texture and surface qualities. The predilection for large areas of undifferentiated or barely fluctuating colour, the exploitation of the edge, of the shaped or moulded support, and the physical juxtaposition of disparate or borrowed elements.
