Leopard Print and Golden Boots - Gallery 9

I love going to art show openings and contrary to the belief of some of my more cynical friends, I am not just there for the free drinkie poos; I am there for the art, honest I am. But its not just fresh new art that you get to see at art openings you get to check out the crowd too and; that crowd differs oh-so-greatly depending on a raft of variables from; gallery status, style of art, the medium itself.. You know, painting, printmaking, photography, design, installations; the many permutations of the aforementioned really do create an infinity of variables in the art and the art crowd and I just love it all. On Wednesday evening it was Gallery 9 in Darlinghurst for 'non objective project one' with a posse of artists I know well from SNOLynne Eastaway, Adrian McDonald, Giles Ryder and Kyle Jenkins. No artists portraits this time though; I just went along to enjoy the show.

Of course one just can't ignore a Street Fashion opportunity at Gallery 9 like our man in leopard print skinny pants and shirt with gold boots, blue complimentary scarf and long black coat. Only in Darlinghurst? Well maybe, the detail of the Eiffel Tower and star charms against the leopard print shirt make for a 'nearly' abstract art statement of their own. Great stuff and not something everyone can carry off - that's certainly my idea of real Street Style!

After Gallery 9 the art loving continued at King Street Gallery for Joanna Logue's highly abstracted Australian landscape paintings; actually in some ways not so different from the detail of the shirt above...

Two fabulous shows well worth getting along to.
