Reappropriate everyday materials and objects to celebrate their intrinsic beauty
Ruth Downes has a passion for reappropriating everyday materials and objects to celebrate their intrinsic beauty. Materials for these ‘wearable’ artworks are from many sources –aircraft headsets to coffee capsules. Detritus from nature has been re-born as a fashion statement. The works question our values and how we award status on these everyday materials into the realm of art. This is much more than a simple ‘up-cycling’ exercise. Downes has an acute awareness of the potential of these materials. These 3D works are mounted on a spectrum of coloured ellipses with several ‘busting out’ on mounted body forms. www.ruthdownes.com.au

Sculpture by The Sea- Cottesloe Perth 2020
“The piece is called God. “The creation process comes with struggles, failures, frustration and contentment, in the joy of craftsmanship. There is a sensuous hedonism in paint textures, in carving perfumed wood, in the application of glazes. It becomes relevant to me on consideration of the audience. I really must have something to convey. As time has progressed my work has become more concerned with the human condition and the connection of this expression with the viewer. I offer up an idea/concept/ metaphor or placebo for them to engage with. Perhaps they will appreciate the superficial visual” Steve Marr. https://www.stephenmarr.com.au/

If the walls could stalk
Kentaro Yoshida was born and raised in the fishing village of Toyama, Japan. In 2004, aged 18, he moved to Australia to learn English, how to surf and eventually design at the University of Technology Sydney. His pastel-toned, hand-painted murals grace the walls of the AGNSW entrance court during the exhibition Japan supernatural. Kentaro Yoshida's parade of monstrous Yokai characters come to life with when viewing it via the Artivive app. Watch a short video of the artwork come to life here https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=737019513454674

Can you find the snowdrops? The value of city pocket parks
New York City encourages its residents to sponsor small parks.  This shot of the first blooms signaling spring is from the Sheridan Square Viewing Garden in Greenwich Village.  The land was originally a small parking lot for motorcycles.  Then a group of residents petitioned for the establishment of a garden in that small space.  Once permission was granted, they planted it and maintain it to this day.
