‘Message In A Bottle’ Interconnected
My new work ‘Message In A Bottle’ will be joining a stellar lineup at the New England Regional Art Museum as part of Beautiful Bizarre Magazine’s ‘Interconnected’ exhibition from May 13-June 26.
Beautiful Bizarre Editor-in-chief Danijela Krha Purssey has pulled out all the stops and defied traditional genre boundaries to bring together over 70 of Australia’s top artists – from decorated veterans to extraordinary emerging talent (for the full list of artists click here). This is edgy, conceptual, imaginative and deftly executed work that brings what might once have been considered lowbrow genres, like neopop and dark surrealism, well and truly into the realm of fine art.
Congratulations Danijela on what’s set to be an incredible show and the first of its kind in Australia. I’m very proud to be part of it.
If you’d like to receive an exclusive catalogue preview before the exhibition opens, please email email@example.com to be added to the catalogue preview email list prior to Monday May 9th.
If you’re able attend, the show opens at 6pm, Friday May 13th at the New England Regional Art Museum, 106-114 Kentucky St, Armidale, NSW 2350.

A FEW WORDS ABOUT MY ‘INTERCONNECTED’ PIECE…
‘Message in A Bottle’ is an ode to the symbiosis of intra and inter connection.
We are artefacts of fragility and resolve, gossamer and titanium intertwined, each as fractured or whole as self-cognisance permits. As our inward eyes open, we often see our fragile parts as things to confine, guard or obscure.
The canary has long been my hallmark device for the complex relationship between fragility and freedom. To, dauntless, uncage our vulnerable aspects is to let fly a divergent strength inspiring deeper connection, within and without.
The Latin note in the bottle, ‘Ubi unitas, ibi spes. Dum spero, spiro.‘, translates to ‘Where there is unity, there is hope. While I hope, I breathe.’
