Well as you all know its Art Month here in Sydney and the weather, apart from a bit of a quickie storm this afternoon.. has been a lovely and sunny Autumn seemingly reversing itself back into Summer. In a nutshell you may still wear what you like. So it is nice to see great art and a fabulous array of fashion. Friday night I attend the exhibition Elan of Trenton Shipley at Gallery Eight, who as it turns out is an artist after my own heart in more ways than one. Trenton's show was my second look at naked ladies on canvas inside seven days, and it is curious that both 'nude' artists should choose to wear jackets to their shows with Trenton going all-the-way in a suit with a fabulous paisley necktie and art-matching pocket handkerchief. Is this the dress of painters of the undressed? I don't know, however I will be on the lookout for more fashion signs and wonders on the naked art front.
With all due respect, seriously; I love what I can only describe as a return to Disco Fever worn so beautifully by the lovely Hannah at Olsen Irwin last week for Tamara Dean's 'The Edge', and that's one of Tamara's art photographs right behind Hannah. Another beautiful show. Olsen Irwin was also the site of Robert Malherbe's What's there is there, an exhibition of life painting and landscapes. Robert turned out in all black with a lovely black jacket as you can see in his portrait with the beautiful large nude painting below. I just love his style of brushwork and colour, beautiful the paintings and Robert is equally charming.
