GIVE



Emerging artist Melanie Evans has just closed her graduating exhibition, Give, at HR Gallop Gallery, Charles Sturt University. After four years of study Evans work exudes a sensitivity, an honesty emerging from the found object and the handmade. Her miniature sculptures, found objects, drawings, prints and textiles place an emphasis on the importance of arrangement. The way in which the sculptures are placed, within a bowl, hung from a vertical wall, or attached to a horizontal surface, acknowledges the significance of placement and possibly denoting to Evans way of looking at the world, sorting things out.

PROPAGANDA (GOMA) V'S RETURN TO SENDER (UQ)













The name of an exhibition poses a question and it is with interest that the “?” is a literal question. Propaganda by definition is a form of communication (possibly biased) that is aimed at influencing the attitude of a community toward some cause or position.

BOXCOPY

Boxcopy began in 2007. A group of students from Queensland University of Technology formed the group because opportunity was lacking  for art students to develop their practice, a time the group recognised how difficult it was for a new artist.

LETTER TO EVA HESSE FROM SOL LEWITT

Dear Eva,

It will be almost a month since you wrote to me and you have possibly forgotten your state of mind (I doubt it though). You seem the same as always, and being you, hate every minute of it. Don’t!
