Ep 9 Part 1 -Watching a Commission Come To Life
We recently had the opportunity to commission an artwork from local artist Damian Smith and were able to record some of his creative process from conception to finished piece. For those who have always wanted to see how an art piece is created, we have documented the process for our podcast, accompanied with photographs and an interview. More on Damian Smith… Often using women as the focus for his art, Damian’s style lends itself to a classic, yet contemporary style. His current works focus on juxtaposing beauty and aesthetics against symbolic elements such as skulls, horns, antlers and birds and could be considered the starting point in a conversation about our focus on the superficial versus our own mortality. In doing so, Damian’s work draws attention to philosophical discussions of morality, value and meaning. Beauty Mortality by Damian Smith Because of this, Damian’s work is approachable, and with a glossy-magazine familiarity to it, it makes the perfect place to begin a conversation on value and arts culture in society. This is one of the main reasons we contacted Damian to create artworks for Fringe. Although he admits to struggling to find his identity as an artist initially. Damian’s journey as an artist has taken him from a BA in Fine Arts at QCA in 2003, where he poured his heart and soul into discovering different mediums and engaging in the greater arts industry to leaving uni with no idea of what kind of artist he wanted to be, or what he wanted to say. Even so, Damian has maintained a local focus with a steady average of one to three solo or group exhibitions each year. WIP – Illustration by Damian Smith And as he matures Damian’s life experience continues to inform his artworks. He says, growing up in Queensland, it wasn’t until he travelled extensively that he began to explore the concepts of morality and mortality in more depth. “My travel has certainly broadened my awareness of art and the way it integrates with society.” And he is nothing if not serious about his art career, enacting a methodical approach to finding more time to create. In fact Damian has recently transitioned from part-time to full-time artist. An achievement he credits to the notion that artists can’t just wait to be discovered. He says, “With this in mind I have been working a plan which identifies my ideal lifestyle as an artist, and a path to get there.” He has also developed a passion for education, business and emerging artist mentoring and we will be watching how this informs the direction he takes his arts practice. Fringe believes, as Damian does, it is important we have artists and voices like him who continues to create affordable and accessible art that will enrich the culture of our local community. You can find Damian’s post-modern, urban, animation, pop and street art and fashion culture inspired works hanging in a gallery near you, or on these websites: https://www.facebook.com/damiansart/ http://www.damiansart.com/ https://www.instagram.com/damiansart82 Ali.x The post Ep 9 Part 1 -Watching a Commission Come To Life appeared first on Fringe - Art & Culture.

Podcast Ep 8
As the Day of the Dead festivals continue until November 2nd, so does our celebration of Halloween with our special Halloween Podcast with the shocking conclusion of Ghost Children, by Mitchell Tierney. Find the first two chapters if you missed them on SoundCloud. “Writing crept up on Mitchell when he wasn’t looking. It was a medium to vent his creativity while he was looking for work. He says, “If I could draw well I would have gone to comic books instead, and if I could paint, well you get the picture. “Everyday I write or think about writing or plan ideas in my head. Even at work I jot down story ideas on scrap paper when no one is looking! I have a huge back catalogue of unfinished stories, both for adults and children. I keep them all and slowly work on them when the time is right.” Mitchell Tierney – Author, Ouroborus Books As a bonus! The Halloween Poem performed at the Ruckus Slam by Logan Writer, Ejay Jamb has been featured in the bottom of these show notes. Get down and read it out loud to a friend.

Inspiring Artistic Expression, Logan Ana Medieta, Siluetas As promised here is a little more about late artist Ana Mandieta. Ana Mandieta’s series entitled, Siluetas explored the relationship between nature and being, photographing her body blurred by blood, flowers, feathers and dirt across her flesh in varied combinations. “Her haunting imagery explores the relationship between earth and spirit while tackling the eternally plaguing questions of love, death and rebirth. Like an ancient cave drawing, Mendieta’s art gets as close as possible to her subject matter allowing no excess, using primal and visceral means to navigate her themes.”¹ The Haunting Traces Of Ana Mendieta Go On View (NSFW) – Huffington Post Halloween. Written by Ejay Jamb and performed at Ruckus Slam, New Globe Theatre, Brisbane, 24/10/16. Halloween suggests a thinning of the veil between this world and the next, A most horrifying tale of demons who’ll have you hexed! What then is Halloween if not a symbol of our fear? Our ignorance of realms unseen where nothing is fixed or clear What then is Halloween if not messages from our inner host? Identities with no physical being, perhaps a sad and restless ghost We celebrate Halloween to remind us of other things, like the universe behind the screen and all it’s natural blessings On Halloween, remember well life is more than what we’re told, more than just this fleshy shell where humanity seems so cold Halloween signifies a ghoulish unveiling, The souls of the dead emerge with their moaning and their wailing, our dread a trembling dirge Me, I think this nicely indicates that death is another adventure, Halloween is how it translates until we learn to remember Your own experiences tell you with those mysterious intuitions, which come from an unexplored venue and result in inspirations and visions! Where do we go each night? Into a cosmos of dreams to leave our bodies and take flight, where nothing is what it seems Halloween, that cluster of myths serves to hint at ancient wisdom from the annals of ancient monoliths, to right here in good old Brisbane.

Podcast Ep 5
Last month we’ve delved into different concepts of home and what that means to us. We touched on how arts culture gives us a way to explore what home means, how it’s changed and even what it might feel like to be displaced. Keep listening to hear a reading of chapters 1 & 2 from Mitchell Tierney’s short fiction: Ghost Children.

The severed trees highlight harmful acts of separation, distress, dilution and loss, of people who have been cut off and forced from their cultural heritage, their motherland and their geographic place. I use satire in this collection of drawings to comment on issues of forced migration. The SEVERED ROOTS series starts with a narrative form into which I attempt to weave my understanding of the mental states of mind and physical hardships endured on the journey from one state mind/place to another. My drawings seek to give voice to the ‘speechless’ members of society— the refugee the displaced. I see myself as part of this situation and at the same time I try to position myself outside of it in order to look at it more objectively. In an effort to avoid repetitive imagery which would just show the Dickensian life of displaced people, I have pursued the inclusion of a balance of subliminal narratives and hidden text. I have tried to avoid making a series of work to reflect the anger and compassion of the victim and the viewer but instead I have tried to reflect more on the context surrounding the situation and allow the viewer to pass their own judgement on the situation.” Exploring cultural identities through art: http://www.tidegloballearning.net/further-reading-reflections/exploring-cultural-identities-through-art> The philosophy of home: http://neoskosmos.com/news/en/phillosophy-home-edward-h-spence-opinion By Edward Howlett Spence, Senior Lecturer (Philosophy and Ethics), Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics, Charles Sturt University.

Studies of the general population show a definite increase in the incidence and prevalence of mental disorders. Women are more affected than men. Other vulnerable groups are children, the elderly and the disabled. Prevalence rates are associated with the degree of trauma, and the availability of physical and emotional support. The use of cultural and religious coping strategies is frequent in developing countries.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1472271/ What’s happening around Logan: Music Cavern Beenleigh had their monthly Saturday concert in the Beenleigh town square this past weekend, so look out for the next one of those by keeping an eye on their Facebook page for details.

Podcast Ep 4
This month on the podcast we speak with artist OmiLee, aka Naomi Crawford and discuss her work, her processes and her piece entitled Cleansing. We took this piece out into the community and engaged a few people in a discussion about OmiLee’s work, her style and what it meant to them. Have a listen here: The feedback was mostly constructive and everyone enjoyed the discussions we led. We hear more and more how people would love to have more accessible culture in the community and we’d love to hear from you too. Check out the piece in the slideshow below and let Naomi know what her work means to you. Hit us up in the comments or on Facebook or Twitter, or get in contact with Naomi via her Facebook page. Not sure how to go about engaging with the work? Check out our feature post from earlier in the month. We also discussed in more depth the role our cognitive biases and mindsets play a roll in our lives, and how engaging with art and culture can play a role in helping us be more open, and be happier and healthier.
