After a meeting in December, gallery owner Lorraine Pilgrim has offered to represent my work in her studio gallery, Studio 87. The gallery is located on the Gold Coast, 87 Ridgeway Ave, Southport. Lorraine has had a highly successful career spanning forty years in private Art Galleries and Studios. She has worked with artists such as Michael Zavros and I very much look forward to a wonderful artist/gallery partnership.
Our first exhibition together will be her Christmas group exhibition titled ‘Christmas Bash/Knees Up’ on Saturday, December 15. Here’s a look at the pieces I’ll be showing. For a price list, contact Lorraine directly on her website.
Here’s the invitation:
It’s time! The Rah Collective Book is out, and it features two pages from yours truly. One page features some of my illustration work that you can view on www.geline.com.au and the other page has as nice little interview. This book will be circulating mostly around Australia, but if you’re overseas you might get lucky ans score a copy. You can always order one from the Rah Collective website. They’ve done a great job getting together talent for the book. As the ultimate book-sniffer I can vouch that it also has a good scent. After all, that’s important.
‘The Girl I Used To Know’ is my latest solo exhibition to be held at Lust For Life Gallery in Fortitude Valley.

The touring exhibition of the prestigious Queensland Regional Art Awards, ‘Connection’, will land in Brisbane at the Queensland State Library on Saturday 29th September. This exhibition has been touring around Queensland for the last six months and it’s making it’s way to the city. Come and check out my painting at the opening.
Curated by Michele Helmrich (Senior Curator, The University of Queensland Art Museum) this impressive exhibition features the diverse art work of 29 of the finest emerging and established artists working in regional and remote Queensland.
The theme of the exhibition ‘connection’asked artists to explore their relationship and associations with regional and remote Queensland and the people, places, history and stories that connect them with this unique place.
CEO of Flying Arts Stephen Clark said that after a successful tour around regional Queensland he was thrilled that ‘Connection’ was at last arriving for its Brisbane season.
“The QRAA encourages participation and recognises excellence” he said “and provides a wonderful opportunity for regional and remote artists to showcase their work to a wider Queensland audience”.
“While it’s in Brisbane there is also a great opportunity for city residents to see the work of artists who choose to live and work outside the mainstream”.
The Queensland Regional Arts Awards is a hallmark event produced by Flying Arts which for more than 40 years has been providing visual arts development services throughout regional and remote Queensland.
The official launch of the exhibition, to be opened by the Hon Ros Bates MP Minister for Science, IT, Innovation and the Arts will take place at The Studio, State Library of Queensland on Saturday 29th September at 4 pm.
The launch will be preceded by a public program that includes a forum on the topic ‘creativity and the power to connect’ (2pm) and a Floor Talk by curator Michele Helmrich (3.30 pm).
Great news! One of my pieces has made it as a finalist into the Heysen Prize, a national art prize for the interpretation of place. If you are in the Adelaide area, get down to the Hahndorf Academy at 3pm on Saturday October 6, 2012 to see the winner announced.
Due to technological and cultural shifts, the way people see the world is changing. Through constant contact with computers, we are quickly becoming accustomed to a new kind of imagery. ‘Every Place and No Place’ explores the essence of a landscape filtered through digital imagery on textured, painterly canvases. I aim to achieve a dance with control and the serendipitous nature of expressive painting. There is an ethereal and sublime quality in digital video or photography when the medium corrupts. This effect reminds me of recalling a place from our past and the distortion that happens with memory.
A few months ago I was approached by local photographer Tracy Naughton. She had an idea photograph me by replicating old photographs of famous artists. I really had to put on my thinking cap in order to capture some of the expressions.
The purpose of these photographs is not to get an exact likeness of the original, but to explore notions of grandeur, and how it is that an artist becomes ‘great’. I’m no different than mosts artists; I want to be great.
The shoot was both humbling and empowering. Humbling because it reminds me that I’m only a beginner and I have a long way to go in my practice before I’ve done what I set out to do. It was also empowering because in order to be able to model for the photos I had to adapt strong personalities. Frida had a regal confidence yet fragile. Dali was clever, quick and a little maniacal, and Picasso had a sense of confidence that can only come from knowing he was great. Walking in their shoes reminded me of my own strength and character.“It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”
Picasso experimented with light paintings in which he used a small light source to make a sketch in the air while photographing with a slow shudder setting. Of course I didn’t want to replicate his sketches; instead I wanted the feeling of a confident and decisive sketch.
“It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”
Picasso was taught by his artist father, and by the time he was eleven he could paint like a master. However part of his life’s journey was to let go of pretenses and re-learn that quick, confident stroke that usually comes with being a child. For me, those sort of wild strokes are second nature and my journey is to learn to control those reactionary impulses. It’s like a crazy beast that needs taming. Some people like a crazy beast. I happen to strive for perfect balance. The light paintings are about as impulsive as you can get, so I felt right at home.
I figure I’ll let you Google the originals, just to keep things interesting.
The photographs will be on display at the RIDE exhibition in March. Do come along to show and support your Sunshine Coast artists! The coast has been providing some great shows mixing music and and food and this is one that celebrates the emergence of a real arts scene on the coast.

What a great night!
Loads of people came to see the launch, screening and group exhibition of Artist by Artist. Thanks to all of my friends and family who came to the event. And a special thanks to ABC Open and Creative Generator SEQ for their support.
Cindy Wider was amazing as she spoke on behalf of all the artists. Her story-telling ability is totally profesh, and had me at the edge of my seat with antici….pation. What a woman!
Tracy Naughton from Let me Sea photography was a lifesaver as I scrounged around for a place to buy some flowers for the lovely and hard-working Kim Schoenberger. I’m going to trade an art piece with Kim soon. So excited to have one of her amazing sculptures at home!
On a boo-hoo note, this was also a bit of a goodbye to ABC producer Natalija Brunovs, who was instrumental in helping everyone make the films. From beginning to end! Thank you for all your hard work and especially your friendship. Keep an eye on this amazing woman because she can do stuff. A lot of stuff!
Here are some photos from the night which I totally swiped from the ABC website (don’t sue me!):
Tracry Naughton & me.

Hammin’ it up.
Ooh, what do we have here? My lovely sister and her handsome Johnny Cash impersonator. What a keeper!
