Sydney artist Laura Jones‘Still Life’ paintings are a celebratory expression of life. It’s not just the subject matter that embodies this, but also the artist’s emotional interpretation in which she invites us to share with her the captivating joys around us all.

Jones’ bright blooms, bountiful foliage and exotic fruits burst forth with youthful vigor from their canvases. Rich in pattern and colour and styled with casual grace, they are free-spirited bouquets that uplift the soul. Gifts from the earth; dragon fruits, pineapples, orchids and gum blossoms, are offerings from Mother Nature at her best. The seasonal joy of Jones’ handpicked harvest of flowers is bighearted, abundantly festive yet at other times beautifully solitary. The backdrops are extensions of the bountiful sentiment; patch-worked colours, abstractions of space, or dense inky black, opening up or condensing our focus.

Working with hand-picked flowers, Jones’s time is limited to their lifespan, their detail depicted broadly so that all that remains is the true essence of their spirit. Her subject matter is ageless but her lashings of confident brushstrokes are completely contemporary.

As it is we are not alone in our admiration, this exhibition is a retrospective of Jones’ work since 2012. Laura Jones appetite for life is contagious, inviting us to capture the moment, to celebrate and to share its joys.

We have cherished Jones’ vivacity since interviewing her for a ‘Chat in a Chair’ back in 2013.

‘Tempo Polveroso’ is a new body of work by Belgian photographer Frederik Vercruysse dreamed up within the serenity of an ‘artist in residency’ program at the Villa Lena in Tuscany.

Currently in exhibition at the iconic store, restaurant, hotel space, Graanmarkt 13 in Antwerp, Vercruysse’s 16 photographs are a clouded abstraction of the quintessentially romantic ideals of the Italian countryside.

Devoid of all human presence, the very core of the italian landscape of marble is at once cinematic in it’s grandeur, yet melancholic in its reality. The ‘Tempo Polveroso’ or ‘Pulverised Time’ of Vercruysse’s capture transcends a comprehensible sense of scale, creating a unique vision of the landscape architecture of Tuscany. Eerily detached from a sense of reality and context, they are picturesque yet abstract, intimate yet monumental.

Exploring beyond the quarries and into the immediate surrounds of the Villa Lena, Vercruysse’s illusions of nature are free from context. Their detail is layered in mist and blurred or flared, infinitely poetic is a suspended dreamlike haze.

Julian Meagher in ‘Drinking with the other Sun’ and Anh Do in ‘Man’, now showing at Sydney gallery Olsen Irwin present emotional portraits of men in a raw, yet endearing way, their subjects floating in white space, in paint on canvas. Meagher’s work is ephemeral and ghostly, his subjects reverent, fragile and blurred presences while Do’s men are physically arresting, thickly layered to command space beyond the confines of the canvas.

Sydney-based artist Julian Meagher’s exhibition, ‘Drinking with the other Sun’, is a collection of ethereal paintings layered with a recurrent exploration of the male figures pivotal to the artist, his understanding of masculinity, the evolution of Australia and the legacy of our history.

Although Meagher’s medium is oil on linen, it is his combination of precise linework combined with delicately controlled leaching and dripping that mimics the character of watercolours. It’s a technique that softens the features of faces, the gnarliness of flora and gives dimensional purity to the collections of glass objects.

‘Drinking with the other Sun’ explores the Australian identity by placing male figures that are personally connected or historically known alongside the native flora of Australia and that of our imperial motherland. The history of forefathers portrayed against the hardiness of the Banksia and contrasted with the iconic English Rose (at once delicate and prickly), metaphorically referencing British influence on our national identity. The stoic depiction of Australian masculinity is portrayed by Meagre as an exploration of vulnerability.

Portraits include those of the artist’s cousin Leighton whose father was a matador in the 1960s in Seville, as well as portraits of the great great grandsons of explorers William Wentworth and William Lawson, and the grandson of Sydney Harbour Bridge engineer John Bradfield. Meagher also includes a self-portrait in his father’s shirt.

Meagher comments; “As I’ve grown older I have become much more aware of how both personal and collective inherited history shapes our identity, especially in relation to contemporary Australian masculinity.”

Anh Do‘s first solo exhibiton, ‘Man’, is a collection of densely painted portraits of friends of the artist, with creases and crevasses speaking of full lives touched by beauty and pain. Do, a well known comedian, actor, writer and television personality has found his solace in painting.

Complementing Meagher’s preoccupation with masculinity, Do explores the paradox of human nature, exploring that mysterious place of enlightenment behind our public facades and the emotional duality of men. As Do puts it, “I try to pick people if I think I can show the whole story in their faces… It’s very intuitive, I am just looking for those lines between the guy’s eyes or something in the mood he is giving off’.”

Rugged, deep furrows, with flyaway hair and craggy beards are decisively painted with confident brushstrokes, impasto style. Colour accentuates the intensity of Do’s masculine faces in ‘Man’ as they float on their canvases allowing for no distraction from the commanding yet almost familiar subjects.

Sydneysider Daniel Shipp’s photographic exhibition ‘Botanical Inquiry’ is a carefully orchestrated arrangement of almost ikebana-like plants and flowers against cinematic backdrops of our cityscapes that are full of drama. Working with vegetation sourced from the streets of Sydney, Shipp hones in to amplify the small natural wonders often overlooked in the hustle and bustle of the everyday.

Playing on scale, Shipp creates an insect-like perspective. We are made to imagine him digging himself into the ground in order to access this viewpoint. With the looming dip of a stem, plants lose their delicateness and become towering, textural structures, beautifully sinuous in form, speaking of the survival of the fittest. The built environment is hazy, solitary and haunting, yet almost insignificant against the drama of plant life, a reminder of the true order of things.

‘Botanical Inquiry’ is fuelled by Shipp’s relentless curiosity of the interaction with and simultaneous existence of the built and the natural environments.

Australian artist John Bokor’s still lifes and landscapes from his exhibition, ‘Close to Home’, speak of spiritual connection to his everyday. Lounge rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, teapots, vases and bottles of Panadol are lovingly brushed onto canvas – a snapshot of contentment with living.

Cluttered and homely, his paintings are filled with objects, all bumping into one another in a friendly manner, joyously haphazard. Confident but slightly careless brushstrokes are visually intact but dreamy, creating a fuzziness of movement like a shifting gaze.

Colours are over intensified, connecting with the viewer on an emotional level. Purples, oranges, royal blue and all the hues of pink permeate Bokor’s poetic vision of life. Celebrations of the mundane, Boker’s painting are far from ordinary.

Arthouse Gallery’s ‘In The Still’ groupshow explores the idea of the still life through the eyes of twelve contemporary Australian artists. Diverse in materiality and application, from large scale floral single blooms to 3D compositions, the essence of the everyday or the moment, is always present.

Craig Waddell’s intimate paintings of tactile blooms are almost scientific in their botanist dialogue. Miranda Skoczek‘s vivid colourscapes ground and isolate one object while others ghost in the background, part dreamscape, part consciousness. Laura Jones‘ paintings are more traditional yet informal and celebratory with their lurid textiles, bright blooms and festive fodder. Leah Fraser’s condensed imagery is fanciful, a collision of flora and fauna, decoratively wild and free. Kirra Jamison’s floral impressions are visual imprints, like firecrackers when you close your eyes. Claudia Damichi’s ikebana-inspired portrait is laced with symbols like a graphic equation to the organic structure. While Heidi Yardley’s split-natured compositions from yesteryear, smudged and soft, are reminiscent of black and white photos of 1950’s Hollywood beauties.

‘In The Still’ is a collection of bountiful jaunty combinations of the actual versus the abstract.

In/Out: OUT/ABOUT: Felix Forest 'Chernobyl'

Felix Forest’s ‘Chernobyl’ is a haunting realisation of Forest’s teenage dream to visit the eroded, decayed city; built, then abandoned after the world’s worst nuclear disaster. Shot last May after a last minute opportunity arose when Forest was working in Paris, his visit was as fragile as the political situation at the time, the Ukrainian war raging on and Kiev literally up in flames.

The clarity with which Forest’s experience of ‘Chernobyl’ is documented, the delicately balanced compositions and the sense of order in the symmetry imbues the devastation with an unexpected calm. The perspective of Forest’s work is vast yet intimate, dramatic yet serene, a poetic balance when all images are viewed together. The intimacy of the almost domestic scale crops, where one feels that someone has just left the room, is complemented with the comprehension of the almost 30 year abandonment in the broader perspectives of the public spaces. There is a crisp reality, a heartbreakingly beautiful tactility, yet there is a sense of composure to the abandonment. Vivid greenery creeps in, a peripheral acknowledgment of hope. The palette of tranquil mossy greens with harsh slaps of red highlight the dichotomy of emotional experience.

Forest says, “My focus was always on taking photograph in the exclusion zones and I was so focused before I got there that I forgot about the experience side of the journey. It soon caught up with me. On our way to Chernobyl, there were a lot of militias and military road blockages and as soon as we arrived a thunderstorm started… The ambiance was so dramatic and infectious, I was the only ‘tourist’ in the zone as the political climate wouldn’t have been appealing to most people. My guide (you have to get permits through the Chernobyl agency to go there and are constantly escorted by a guide and watched by militaries) has been working in Chernobyl for 14 years, first as a worker and then as a guide. His knowledge of the zone was very extensive and we had planned our expedition as precisely as possible to minimise my exposure to radiation.”

The emotional weight of Forest’s ‘Chernobyl’ is hard to take, yet the experience of such delicate, considered beauty in the abandonment resonates deep within.

Sydney is in for yet another treat with the launch of Living Edge’s new showroom opening this week in the Woolstores, Alexandria. Previously, spread over two showrooms they’ve united to showcase the cache of treasures they are so known and loved for.

Ranging from the timeless classics of Herman Miller, Walter Knoll and Louis Poulsen to the future classics of e15, La Chance and Established&Sons, the showroom is a beautifully restrained, minimalist canvas for such exceptional talent. Designed by Woods Bagot, the space’s characteristic warehouse bones are celebrated yet its reincarnation is sleek.

On the ground floor, a series of dedicated platforms are offered up to each of the brands they represent. The brief was to; “create a series of mini environments… allowing each brand its own designated space using different materials and finishes to create a unique backdrop for their product”. A cosy e15 party incorporates one of our new favourites, the Enoki side table, while the Walter Knoll loungeroom with the Flow Chair and Grand Suite Sofa presides over the double height space.

The mezzanine is dedicated to Herman Miller’s “Living Office” concept. This enables the team at Living Edge to not only work within this environment, but to also offer a seductive testament to the end user of how function and form can unite in the workspace. As they put it; “It has completely changed our way of working and I think we’ll continue to see more benefits, not only in terms of the client interface but internally as well.”

The overarching concept is to showcase each of the Living Edge brands in their own dedicated space. It’s a move towards an exhibition-style showroom experience – our customers should feel as though they’re walking through the Milan Furniture Fair (without the hordes!). Each furniture ‘pod’ is designed to be true to the aesthetic of the brand it represents.

Tailored for the refined connoisseur looking for an Eames Classic Lounge & Ottoman, or the contemporary collector after La Chance’s Bolt Stool, Living Edge’s new Woolstore, Alexandria, showroom is now open.
