Collective Impressions by Lou Davidson

by Cell Art Space
(109 Lake St Cairns, Ergon Energy Building Window Front)


Lou Davidson’s images are created in-camera using movement, panning, hand-held long exposure, breaking the rules of traditional photography techniques, rather than being restricted by them.

Free to express the memory of what she sees, hears, smells, tastes, feels and senses from her surroundings - without the clutter of unnecessary detail to soften and simplify the subject matter.

“Collective Impressions is about seeing what I feel, how the ordinary can become extraordinary by creating blurred representational forms – recognisable even without the detail engaging the view to interpret; evoking memories, sensations and dreaming of a time, a place or beings. Even abstract form and colour give way to an infinite variety of interpretations.”

Lou Davidson obtained a double degree in Arts and Business from James Cook University in 1999.
Her work has been exhibited in a number of galleries in Townsville.

FREE

OPENING NIGHT FRI 10 December 2010 5.30pm - 8.30pm

Please join us at Cell Art Space, 109 Lake St at 5.30pm sharp to officially launch Collective Impressions.

It is Coming, Pastel and Crayon on Paper, 75cm x 55cm, $995.00

Canopy Artspace at 124 Grafton Street Cairns is hosting Ngathérruw Kéwvnthvkar - My Tomorrow, an exhibition of works on paper by Shaun Edwards, Ma Wanjibang Pukun, from the
26th March until the 1st May 2010.

The exhibition showcases a new series chronicling narratives where the personal and the customary intersect.

With a dynamic array of colours in consistently bold, near-symmetrical compositions, the artist has drawn on knowledge of his culture to articulate a spirit of optimism.

Motifs abstracted from significant sites and medicinal plants to ancestral beings and intimate objects, repeatedly emphasise a symbiosis of culture and nature, of the personal and the symbolic. They are produced in natural pigments, pastel and crayon on paper.

Shaun belongs to the Kokoberrin language group of the Staaten River in Cape York. His language name is Kalk, meaning freshwater spear. His totems are sour yam - Ma Wanjibang and Pukun, a native grass found in his homeland.

The Last Nautilus by Madeleine Challender

by Cell Art Space
(109 Lake St Cairns, Ergon Energy Building Window Front)


An Illuminated Shadow Puppet Installation


Madeleine Challender's exhibition is an Illuminated Shadow Puppet Installation called The Last Nautilus - A Light Story. It describes the journey of a nautilus - whom has found himself alone, in the future, when the world is no longer as we know it today. He remembers his past, and recalls the stories of his ancestors, which he tries to keep alive through communication with other sea creatures.

With the help of a whale and some lantern fish, he explores the ocean in search of something - something that we are all searching for - that which completes us. The fragile beauty of life, family, the environment, and cultures are revealed in story.

OPENING NIGHT is SAT 3 April 2010 first performance at 7.30pm and repeated at 8.30pm.

The exhibition is viewable 24/7, FREE, and finishes 30th April 2010.

ANGELS & BOXES by Shane Morris

by Cell Art Space
(109 Lake St Cairns Ergon Energy Building Window Front)

Light by Shane Morris

Light by Shane Morris

Shane Morris’ artworks comprise of old boxes and salvaged wooden boards – used to make small religious icons of her own devising. The works are about a search for a spiritual life in a place where there are no ancient religious edifices. Instead, the land itself has been made sacred – each place has its spiritual story.

“What I make is to do with my response to the Australian landscape. I like tactile materials, and experimenting with different surfaces. History and the life of the spirit are interwoven with the landscape, and can be observed on the fragile surface or skin of the earth. I have seen and photographed ancient Aboriginal middens and rock art, Afghan graves, and the evidence of exotic native fauna. It gives me a sense of wonder, to see fragments of rich stories of history and nature imprinted on sand and earth.”

Shane Morris has completed an Advanced Diploma in Visual Art and has been commissioned for several Public Art projects.

OPENING NIGHT FRI 7 May 2010 5.30pm - 7.30pm
Please join us at Cell Art Space, 109 Lake St (Ergon Energy building window front) at 5.30pm sharp to officially launch Angels & Boxes. From 6pm - 7.30pm meet the artist and enjoy food and drinks at Twelve Bar Café, Cnr Lake & Shields St.

Mapping the Heart

by Frank Frikker
(Mossman)

Creative Director

Creative Director

Creative Director
Producer and Multi-Media Specialist

Mapping the Heart is a performance of original poetry, songs, and multimedia art linked together like the grid squares of a map, locating the topography of the heart in the landscape of the Douglas region.

Words, music, movement and photographic images tell a series of stories about our relationships to ourselves, to those we love, to our community and our environment. The heart is shown reaching out in an exploration of its territory, negotiating lows and highs, and returning home to find that its purpose lies in its unique connection to its world.

Mapping the Heart celebrates the talents of members of the Douglas arts community as the writings of local poet and storyteller Helen Ramoutsaki are interpreted in a colorful, vibrant travelogue along the contour lines of life and love.

Dates, times, venue:
Sunday Oct. 10th at 6:30 pm

eScapism by Chrissy Dwyer

by Cell Art Space
(109 Lake St Cairns, Ergon Energy Building Window Front)


eScapsim is a series of acrylic paintings of “scapes” – landscapes, seascapes, skyscapes, and cityscapes – illustrating the essence of Far North Queensland scenery.

The paintings have a contemporary feel, which employs vibrant colours and textures. The style is Impressionist, some loose and others more detailed. The title of the exhibition plays on the two words; scape and escape. The artist wishes that the viewer feels a sense of relaxation and dreaminess and that they could be part of the scape by escaping into the scene.

Chrissy Dwyer recently completed a Bachelor of Creative Industries (Visual Arts) through James Cook University. Her work has been shown in a number of group exhibitions throughout Far North Queensland since 2005.

eScapism is proudly funded by Cairns Regional Council's Arts and Cultural Grant fund.

FREE

OPENING NIGHT FRI 12 November 2010 5.30pm - 8.30pm

Please join us at Cell Art Space, 109 Lake St at 5.30pm sharp where special guest Lenore Howard, Visual Artist, will officially launch eScapism.

New Work from Lockhart River

by KickArts Contemporary Arts
(Cairns QLD Australia)

My Country, My Land, My Mountains, My Trees- Artist: Josiah Omeenyo

My Country, My Land, My Mountains, My Trees- Artist: Josiah Omeenyo

KickArts Feature Wall – New Work from Lockhart River.

KickArts presents New Work from Lockhart River on the Feature Wall. Lockhart River is famous for the energetic group of artists who work at the Lockhart River Art and Culture Centre. The community of about 600 people is bounded by rainforest, low mountain ranges and the sea. The coastline is strung with sandy beaches where creeks and rivers enter the sea through mangrove protected estuaries. People enjoy their traditional lands and retain many aspects of traditional culture.

Art works by Elizabeth ‘Queenie’ Giblet, Laurence Omeenyo, Patrick Wasaga Butcher and finalist in the Paddington Art Prize Josiah Omeenyo, Susie Pascoe are being exhibited until 18 February. Other art works by Adrian King, Cheryl Accoom and Irene Namok are available in the KickArts Shop.

The paintings are a contemporary response to the environment, culture and traditions of this isolated Aboriginal Community. They express some of the realities of being Aboriginal and the strong influences of traditional culture and values in their world. The artists have developed their own forms of expression which are very different from the art of central Australia and other parts of Australia. The art from Lockhart River promotes the cultural identity of Aboriginal people in contemporary Australian culture.

KickArts is situated at 96 Abbott Street Cairns. The Galleries and KickArts Shop are open Tuesday - Saturday from 10.00am - 5.00pm. Entry is free and everybody is welcome.

Transparency

by Simon Poole at Cell art space
(109 Lake St, Cairns (Ergon Energy Building Window))

Invitation

Invitation

Simon Poole's exhibition, Transparency, is on at Cell art space from 3 January - 6 February 2010, showcasing Glass Assemblage Sculpture Installation.

Glass is defined as an inorganic product of fusion that has been cooled to the solid state without crystalising. It is so common that most of us take it completely for granted. The optical and physical properties of glass make it suitable for many applications and it therefore plays an essential role in art, science and industry.

If it isn't cast and annealed properly it can shatter. It is malleable in its molten state but hard to control as a solid. It can be soft and organic or angular and hard. It is mystery, beauty, fragility, strength, nature, science, emotion, spirituality and the mundane all wound up into one clear container.

Glass is also one of the most recycled materials in the world; however it still requires plenty of energy to make it happen. I have therefore endeavoured to interrupt this process by taking interesting glass objects I collect and rearranging them without the expense of energy other than that of my own.

REVELATION by Hayley Gillespie

by Cell Art Space
(109 Lake St (Ergon Energy building window front))

Eve

Eve

Hayley Gillespie’s Revelation is a figurative interpretation of the literal transposition of biblical and European myth and tradition on to the Australian landscape.

The story looks at the similarities of belief systems, stories and fables from one side of the world to the other, as well as the indoctrination of some and suppression of others.

The work is fashioned in a European illustrative style, with dark elements throughout, as in the Grimm and Anderson vein, as well as the dark side of the Bible.

“My studies for this have been a long interest in Religion and mythology, dating back from my childhood. My first schooling in England was very pagan, then during high school (Church of England), I became involved with the church and took up Religious studies for my final years.”

Now living in Australia for the past fourteen years, Hayley has developed an interest in Aboriginal culture and European / Australian tales from the early settlers and the similarities and effect they have on each other.

OPENING NIGHT FRI 9 July 2010 5.30pm - 8.30pm
Please join us at Cell Art Space, 109 Lake St (Ergon Energy building window front) at 5.30pm sharp to officially launch Revelation. From 6pm - 8.30pm meet the artist and enjoy food and drinks at Twelve Bar Café, Cnr Lake & Shields St.

Place Called Home

Tammy Law, a Brisbane photographer, will be exhibiting in Cell Art Space for the month of August to coincide with Cairns Indigenious Art Fair (CIAF).

“Mona Mona is a place that doesn’t appear on some Queensland maps. Its history is complex; its future uncertain. The members of this Indigenous community are fighting to make the best of what they have.”

In March 2009, the state government announced they would evacuate the former mission and Indigenous community of Mona Mona. The fifty remaining residents still live on the land, but Mona Mona was low on the state government’s list of priorities, declaring infrastructure and the renewing of housing to be discontinued.

Tammy Law received a BA in Photography (Photojournalism) from Griffith University. Tammy earned a place in the YAMP 2009 (Young Artists Mentoring Program). Place Called Home will be exhibited as part of Cairns Indigenous Art Fair 2010.

Shoefiti by Nicolette Worth

by Cell Art Space
(109 Lake St Cairns, Ergon Energy Building)


Nicolette Worth’s exhibition is based around sneakers and urban culture. Each piece of artwork has been created in a different light, depending on the sneaker, as sneakers show many different characters. Some fun and exciting, some harder to read, but all colourful and happy.

Nicolette’s work is influenced by Australian and American hip-hop culture, graffiti and street art, Indigenous Australian art, Indian art, African art and the decorative era of the 1960s. Her art contains a lot of collage layering, different textures, as well as stencilling, scratching and drawing.

“Sneakers are my passion and my love, art is my talent, and so I enjoy joining these two passions together… I hope to give off a contemporary and different feel to my take on what sneaker art is and how it can be expressed.”

Nicolette has completed a Diploma in Visual Arts. In 2009, her sneaker art was exhibited in New York.

Sasi Victoire, Laurel McKenzie and Margaret Genever will exhibit 'Wonderland' at Artroom @ Vivo, Palm Cove, from June 18.

Photographic artworks

Effervescence: to give off bubbles is a series of abstract images captured underwater, revealing texture, shape, form and drama. This contemporary series exists as a result of situation and experimentation and endeavour to capture the unusual.

“My motivation when I capture an image is to create an artwork that is beautiful to the viewer’s eye. Images are planned and studio light is carefully considered. Photography is my outlet and through each photographic experience I receive, grow and learn.”

Rebecca Claire Edwards graduated with a Bachelor of Photography from James Cook University in 2005. Rebecca lectures in photography at James Cook University, is a freelance photographer and artist, and was a mentee in the 2010 Starburst Regional Mentoring Program managed by Youth Arts Queensland. Rebecca continues to exhibit her digital art in numerous group exhibitions throughout Far North Queensland.
