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!
