Week 6: 4 May, 2020
Paul Casey, Lonely Barb (watercolour/collage), 3 May, 2020
Social distancing influences us all.
Tayla Flett, Sculpture to Paper, 25 April, 2020
For Visual Art class (BSE- Academy of Creative Arts) we drew pictures of Patricia Piccinini's sculptures—like the one at Bendigo Art Gallery.
David Stephensen, Choir singing in the pandemic, 26 April, 2020
Virtual choirs—one way to keep singing and learn new skills. All you essentially need is your phone, a copy of the music and a way of silently hearing the guide recording. This one was sacred music—a whole Evensong, and bit of a challenge.
Ann McAlpin, A bone to pick?, 27 April, 2020
Another fun creation!
Angela Morrissey, Nilüfer and Ayşe Meryem, 27 April, 2020
My drawing is of my friend Nilüfer and her daughter Ayşe Meryem. Nilüfer is a Turkish-Australian woman and her name means 'water lily'. Ayşe Meryem is the Turkish form of Aisha Maryam and means 'prosperous' and 'wished for child' respectively. Special names with unique meanings for two very special women.
Samantha Bews, Neurofibrillary Tangles, 28 April, 2020
"As a shut-down activity I did a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) through the Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre called Understanding Dementia. This is a poem responding to the module The Brain." Samantha Bews is a theatre-artist working in Central Victoria. Her last three major projects have explored dementia and its associated complexities.
Jane Ineson, Portrait of Sheree McGuane (iPad drawing), 26 April, 2020
I love Sheree’s beautiful presence and strong spirit. I am working on a series which I call Portraits in a Pandemic. I seek subjects who are willing to sit for me for up to 40 minutes at a respectful distance in their backyard. All I ask is that they contemplate what sustains their well-being during this pandemic. I draw on paper, and sometimes take photos to work with afterwards. The creation of this portrait is in a moving drawing on my Facebook.
Roger Muller, Capital Theatre passage, 29 April, 2020
I took a few photos around town one day and am having a go at painting them, this is my first!
Bruce Henderson, A Beacon of light in a COVID 19 era, 28 April, 2020
This image is of light misty rain taken on the evening of the 28th April. Some fill light to highlight the spire was provided by a LED torch.
Judith Jacobs, Bacchus, (Acrylic and collage) 28 April, 2020
God of wine, agriculture, theatre, and fertility (to mention a few).
Diane Cardinal, Reminiscing (white charcoal on black canvas), 27 April, 2020
I'm very new to the art world and am spending my time in isolation learning where I can.
Sue Jeavons, Autumn pond reflections, 1 May, 2020
I needed some fresh air today so during a fine spell swept fallen leaves from the deck. I liked the colours and reflections in the little pond.
Andre Sardone, Roberto the Brush Tailed Phascogale, 2 May, 2020
A local endangered species, these interesting marsupials are found living in the Bendigo National Parklands in which I live as well. A chance meeting the other day with a phascogale conservationist led me to try morphing this curious creature into my current style of artwork.
Milton Long, Contemporary Studio Jeweller, pendant, sterling silver, enamel, 2 May, 2020
This pendant is a companion piece to last week’s earrings. The base of the enamel is crackle black with a vermilion overlay and the setting is sterling silver.
Dr Michael J Leach, Listening, 3 May, 2020
Michael is a poet, epidemiologist, and lecturer at Monash University, Bendigo. His poems reside in such journals as Cordite Poetry Review and the Medical Journal of Australia. This concrete poem was inspired by listening to the radio, the television, and the rain over the past week.
Paul Harrington, Jigsaw Puzzle, 1 May, 2020
Claire Clarke, The Mountains, 1 May, 2020
Gail Casey, Three Pears (watercolour), 3 May, 2020
Barb Fordham, Magnificent Waves, 1 May, 2020
I love the power, mystery and majesty of the sea. Not to mention the alluring colours and movement. Escapism!
Kathryn Harrison, Covid play, 26 April, 2020
Duffy - Ha Ho Art, Life goes on - Young Doctors in CoViD Love (Acrylic on canvas), 3 May, 2020
Some more covid shenanigans! A big shout out to the heroic health services and key workers locally, nationally and internationally!
