Progress on the Samoan Window
These are the centre three sections assembled in position.
Last night I attended the opening of a solo exhibition at Lo Fi gallery by Californian artist ABOVE, his first time in Sydney and in fact his first gallery exhibition. I was already familiar with this street artist's work and got quite excited when I spotted some of his arrows about in Hibernian House. ABOVE works all over the world; it was wonderful to see his work in person.
The exhibition was prompoted by the recent death of the artist's brother and so was titled appropriately "Here today; Gone tomorrow". All the personalities featured in the larger collages are artists who had been cut down in the prime of their careers.
