But the action doesn’t stop there.

Check out our January Drawing Workshops! 

In January Li Wenmin will be running two fabulous workshops Drawing For Beginners and Drawing Through Journey in the soon to be opened workshop area. Check Workshops on our menu for more information.

Wenmin is a practising artist who specialises in drawing. She trained in Beijing and has acquired a PhD (Fine Arts) from the College of Fine Arts, UNSW. Wenmin has been teaching at a tertiary level for well over ten years and is well positioned to not only assist you to acquire skills in drawing but also to build an understanding of what drawing is and the role of drawing in contemporary art today. Li Wenmin is represented by Flinders Street Gallery.

Alex Falkiner will also be re-running her popular Drawing With Thread and Stitching Off The Page on 25 and 31 January respectively. More details to come.

AirSpace Projects will be opening again on Friday 6 February 2015 with Iconoclasts. Stay tuned for details.

Glenn Locklee has written a lovely positive review of Anie Nheu and Jan Fieldsend’s exhibition Playbox: sixtoeight

And just in case you want to know what it’s all about:

Sydney artists Anie Nheu and Jan Fieldsend work independently then collaboratively to bring together a collection of unlikely objects and materials to stunning effect. While the title Playbox holds childhood associations, this exhibition delves into adult considerations of bodies, emotions, memories and inter-cultural space. Seductive hand painted and drawn surfaces are juxtaposed against industrial and manufactured materials that carry signifiers of culture, place and history. The result is a sophisticated installation crafted with intense deliberation and intelligence.

Informed by the thoughts of the Japanese school of thought Mono-ha (Nheu) and the practice of Ikebana (Fieldsend), extensive time and attention has been paid to the arrangement of things to provide a multi-sensorial experience. Western art history has not been overlooked and references to Minimalism, the Pattern and Decoration Movement and Abstraction abound.

While there is a strong sense of play and collaboration in this installation, playmates Nheu and Fieldsend have left behind a sense of nostalgia, and an emotional residue that is unsettling but fascinating. Works titled Problem Child, Disassembled Monument for a Slow-Motion Dancer and The Tooth Fairy are all shaped and placed in such a way that that it leaves no doubt that this installation is not a consequence of child’s play.
