Street Fashion Sydney @ INTERMISSION by Pete Hawk.

Its not often that I go to a show expecting one thing (that I suspect I won't like) and end up being completely moved by the work in a way I would never thought possible. Pete Hawk's brief exhibition at M2 gallery in Surry Hills is one such show, it's on till the first of September, which I think means you can drop in Monday/Tuesday and see it. Link to the images and my portrait of Pete at the end of the post if you want a taster. Moving and mildly disturbing pictures of isolated men in country NSW.. without being sentimental; well that was my take. But enough of that, you can make up your own mind, here's what I saw people wearing while I was there. Enjoy!

Strand Arcade - 15th Annual Meet The Designers Night.

The Strand Arcade turned on all its charm for the 15th Annual Evening with our Designers night. It's always great to see the Strand in party mode and last Wednesday was no exception.
Plenty of designers to meet, Lisa Dempsey and Jacqueline Hunt of Jac + Jack and Nic Briand from LIFEwithBIRD, Dion Lee, Kit Willow, Miranda and Elektra Kilbey of Say Lou Lou, Justin Lack, Leona Edmiston, author and stylist Jeff Lack signing his new book IndulGENT. And of course, complimentary nibbles and drinks! My favourite of the night was the Balvenie Double Wood 12 year old single malt at the Balvenie Bar outside the Strand Hatters, my favourite shop in the Strand, we also tasted cocktails with Australian Four Pillars Gin up at mister mister - fabulous, Brown Brothers Prosecco and Solerno Fizz. As usual I did my mixing with you the people; the pictures say it all; Happy 15th Designers night Strand Arcade!

Artists at their opening - A reluctant St. Peter & Simonology..

Two art shows last night, obsolete logos by Peter Atkins at Martin Browne Contemporary and STEREOGENIC by Simonology at Black Eye Gallery. I first met Peter two years ago at his Jazz show, also at Martin Browne and soon after we became Facebook friends. I have to say, seeing Peter's photos he takes and posts on the subjects that inspire him, from minimalist #‎readymadeabstraction‬ gararge doors to design finds at Camberwell Market it's been a very inspiring journey for me too, what an eye this man has. He brings it all together in the obsolete logos paintings and found object constructions Rosalie's Alphabet & Journal, 2014;  what a lot of things go on in Black Street!!! Of course I can never resist making a saint of an artist when their artwork is ready to oblige, thank you Peter, I hope you like the new portrait, thanks for sharing your inspirations and thanks for a great show.

Simon/Simonologies STEREOGENIC exhibition is totally new experience for me and I enjoyed the large works both with and without the stereoscopic glasses, the smaller line drawing(?) photographs I actually preferred with glasses off, the blue and red hues so enjoyable in and of themselves, and they disappear with the glasses on!
