Human Nature – some things i’ve seen

12.19 pm, Fri Nov 10, 2017 – Mister Sublet, with the laptop, in the lounge room – at home, Hobart, Tasmania.

Rightio, I’m back down south, far south, and it’s time for a relatively impromptu show. I came across a building that’s about to be demolished to make way for new fandangled eco/sustainable/intentional-community apartments, The Commons, and the developers (Small Giants Developments) have been kind enough to say “yep, you can use the space before the wrecking ball swings into the picture.” So a big thank-you to them. This new carbon positive project, The Commons, is being created in collaboration with Core Collective architects.

Human Nature – some things i’ve seen exhibition – Hobart, Tasmania.

Human Nature – some things i’ve seen will be a new mix of old exhibition images that:
– will play off the concept of The Commons and the revival of the existing building which once housed an electrical store;
– will be a continuation of my interest in the tension and interaction between the human and natural worlds, how we define our ‘place’, and our common bond; and
– will be the first public exposure of my works in my new hometown.

Exhibition Dates: Nov 16 – 29
Opening Event: Thurs Nov 16, 6 – 8 pm
Artist Talk: Sun Nov 26, 1 pm
Address: 126 Bathurst St, Hobart
Hours: Thursdays 9 – 2:30
Fridays 11 – 2:30
Sundays 11 – 3
Or by Appointment – charlie@charliesublet.com or 0410 757 202

Hope you can make it down at some point. There may even be a raffle to win one of my fantabulous matchbox miniatures!

And thanks to producer, Kyia Clayton (my do it productions), whom I met in the space when I first wandered in – she showed interest in my proposal, putting me in touch with Small Giants Developments. Kyia is currently producing the Tasmanian Eco Film Festival.

Ok, all the best and bye for now,

Charlie

Runner-up Award – University of Tasmania’s 125th Anniversary Exhibition, The Field

I was happy to receive the Runner-Up Award at this exhibition for my image, ‘The Price of Admission’. The show was curated by Amelia Rowe and judged by David Keeling (Two-time Glover Prize-winning painter) and Dr Jane Deeth (arts writer, curator and educator) who said they found themselves returning again and again to this image. You can watch Jane’s TedX talk, ‘What’s Wrong with Contemporary Art’ here.

5) Random Bits – Taking liberties with Queen Elizabeth II, I can describe 2015 as my annus horribilis, with respect to the departure of several friends and relatives, including my Dad. Make the most of the time you have and let those you love know it. Here’s a pick of Dad et moi in my early years – presumably not an annus horribilis. Note the low angle perspective – pic taken by my brother on his Box Brownie.
