Loss Control is a solo exhibition of new sculptural works by Charles Robb. Loss Control was conceived as part of an ongoing self-portraiture project, shaped by the artist’s interest in figurative and incidental form – especially the mundane objects and materials that accumulated in the studio during the modeling and casting process. In bringing these very different orders of objects together Robb seeks to testify to the strange slippages and correspondences that occur in the studio, and the new subjectivities that they produce.

The Rapture of Death is the experience of delight upon escaping grave danger, writes Prue Gibson. It offers the sweet knowledge that you are safe, at least for the moment, from the clutches of darkness. And it is a phrase which refers to the fear or apprehension of death, rather than the actual experience of dying.
Based on the book of the same name by Prue Gibson, The Rapture of Death features major works by some of Australia’s leading artists. Like the book, this unusual exhibition is a philosophical enquiry into the use of deathly imagery in contemporary art, and investigates why fear of death is an intrinsic part of life.
BASED ON THE BOOK: The Rapture of Death by Prue Gibson. Published by Boccalatte Pty Ltd.
OPENING: Friday 30 November 6.00pm. To be opened by Prue Gibson, Author, The Rapture of Death

Juan Ford‘s much anticipated solo exhibition opens next week at dianne tanzer gallery + projects.
A determination made in 2007 to briefly conduct an un-clicheed re-engagement Australian painting has turned into an ongoing and ever-expansive project for Juan Ford. Since then he has unceremoniously and disrespectfully mashed together painted realism, figuration, botanical illustration and landscape traditions with junk, plastic, gaffer tape, house paint, stickers and sludge to produce a unique series of paintings.
In this series, portraits have become landscapes, landscapes become portraits, but in a way that gives these ludicrous ‘traditional’ demarcations a swift kick up the posterior. His project focuses on the idea that human hubris to our natural environment will be our own undoing, and thus mocks the tendency of painted realism to salute colonialism, and the nature-fearing, resource-devouring, self-destructive attitudes it embodies.
This series is also an exquisitely and lovingly rendered study of the play of Australian light, and an ode to all that grows here naturally.
Join us for drinks at our official opening on Saturday 8 September, 3-5pm!

His solo exhibition at dianne tanzer gallery + projects is opening 8 September.

Entitled Minor History, the exhibition is a collection of new painterly sculpture by Shaun O’Connor exhibited alongside fellow dianne tanzer gallery + projects artist Juan Ford. Exhibition opens August 11 – September 1.
The work in Minor History presents O’Connor’s astute reflections on the commonplace signs, symbols and inscriptions that activate the street surfaces of the artist’s Brooklyn neighborhood. Anonymous inscriptions, protest graffiti, doodled abstractions, buffed tags and faded blue collar handbills serve as starting points for a collection of meticulously modeled painterly sculptures. The artist utilizes everyday materials to craft slick objects that read as pop editorial.
