Re-inventing LIFE through ART, an ongoing therapy.
Silent intelligence, each soul’s higher self, speaks of a collective, a whole; the human race as one. In our hearts we all know this to be true, one only needs to apply thought. Pressure in the frontal lobe region may follow as a result, tension will subside with gradual use of the minds eye.
If you’re in disagreement I invite you to come along and allow the artists involved to persuade you of another outlook, or more accurately in-look. An in-look which becomes an outlook of the soul. Push the envelope and watch it bend, be like the reed in the wind, the one Confucius spoke of. The Hidden runs our lives, for most of us have no idea of our purpose of existance. Most of us hide behind invisible mask of our choosing.
Man is a walking talking paradox, who’s hypocritical abilities are of legendary status. At this point in humanity’s evolution I believe it is important to pause and take stock of one’s true purpose, lights, gifts and shadows truths. Together they provide the human halone with a third dimensional experience, according to information (thoughts) available.
Seems to me, one’s thoughts and intent should take precedence above all.

THIS SUNDAY 11 June 2017 all eyes will be on Fitzroy Street, St Kilda …. and this time, for all the right reasons!
The Gatwick is now vacant and preparations for The Block 2018 are well underway, and no better time to celebrate than this weekend’s QUEEN’s BIRTHDAY.
The Fitzroy Street Business Association will be hosting their first ever QUEEN’s BIRTHDAY STREET PARTY from 3pm till 6pm.
Under the meticulous eye of the Association’s Vice President & well known celebrity photographer, Murray Schoorman, the street is set to “come alive” with a bevvy of live entertainment throughout the afternoon.
Commencing seaside, at the St Kilda Seabaths, a decadent horse-drawn carriage will transport the birthday girl (Queen Elizabeth Impersonator) over the Esplanade and into Fitzroy Street. This convoy will be flanked by the official Royal British Guards and will be played in by the traditional bagpipes.
Roving up and down the street, members of the general public will be able to stop and take photographs with Her Majesty and her entourage.
Outside the Metropol complex will be a highly skilled fire twirler spinning his flames like no other guy can do.
All the while, sexy models in “Queen of Hearts” costumes and a magician will be entertaining the crowds till sunset.
You wont miss the amazing stilt walkers, adding to the exciting “street party” vibe!
It would not be a Queen’s Birthday without St Kilda’s famous resident Queen’s – DRAG QUEEN’s of course!
Look out for iconic gender illusionists, Paris, Krystal Ring, Pashion and Rita LC who will be camping it up like they do best.
Venues along Fitzroy Street will be decorated in British flair and many will be hosting after parties into the wee hours of the Monday morning. Which we may add, is a public holiday so no need to rush off to work, guests may like to splash out at the boutique TOLARNO HOTEL where they are offering their rooms for a heavily discounted rate of only $110 for the night.
The Association has enlisted the services of Melbourne’s PR queen, Helen Reizer from HRPR to ensure the street is buzzing with VIP’s and Celebrities to welcome Her Majesty and show off the streetscape from it’s best angle.
This event is a key milestone for the community as they are now on the up & up following an extremely tough and challenging trading season.
All public are invited to come along from 3pm and show their support & enjoy a right-royal party!.

This exhibition comprises 16 hand coloured photographs of scenes entirely
produced by the artist.
After extensive research James Tylor sourced appropriate sites, where
historical material confirms there was a constant presence of indigenous
occupation that consequently had been erased. The artist re-creates the
evidence of occupation, photographs it, prints and hand colours each work.
Gallery Director, Vivien Anderson says, “James Tylor champions the continuum of indigenous presence through the dignified staging of the evidence of Aboriginal occupation”.
“Through the rich tonal highlights of hand colouring the images James projects a pulse into the image, pushing the refresh button on our awareness of the Indigenous pre-colonial legacy and a sense of shared loss.”
Unresettling is a project of relearning and practicing traditional indigenous
cultural practices in contemporary society that have been lost due to
European colonisation of Australia.
As a young Australian with Indigenous ancestry I feel that it is extremely
important to learn, understand, practice and teach indigenous culture. In this
self-experimental exploration project, I have attempted to re-learn some
traditional practices from oral discussions, language, drawings, paintings,
photographs, historical journals and publications. Re-learning these practices
has given me a deeper understanding of Australian history, the environment
and my ancestors’ cultural practices but most importantly a great
understanding of my own Indigenous identity.
In addition, over the past year James Tylor has fashioned over 30 original
utilitarian and ceremonial objects used by traditional Kaurna language
speakers of South Australia to exacting specifications also sourced through
extensive research of the Museum of South Australia.
These objects are to be installed across the exhibition intersecting the images.
Opening: 6pm – 8pm WEDNESDAY 29 MARCH 2017
James Tylor is available for interview on Tuesday 28 and Wednesday 29 March
Please contact the gallery for appointments and further information
Gallery hours: Tues – Fri 11 am – 5pm, Sat 12 – 4pm and by appointment
