Out and About


Last night one of our clients, artist David Wills (above), was part of a group exhibition at the National Art School. Along with artists Justin Balmain - his works are titled as soft paintings and use cut-out shapes on fabric - Deidre Brollo and Catherine Fox, David created his first Wunderwall comprising just under 2,000 photographs. The exhibition marks the first from the artist-in-residency program. The name 'Salad Days' plays with the idiomatic expression used to refer to the days when we are young and relatively inexperienced yet idealistic, but also refers to a time when we are approaching the peak of our abilities.

One of the motivations for starting our blog was to promote and support the creative people we work with on a daily basis. The Paris Crash is one such example. Featuring Harley from DigitalPress, the wide eyed man second from the right, The Paris Crash is currently riding high on Uncharted, a national program aiming to give exposure to fresh new musical talent.

Out and About


The MCA in Sydney is showcasing the work of artist Shahzia Sikander. Working with animation, paint and drawing we were impressed by the masterful hand-control evident in her brush-work. With intricate elements, we were quite taken by the beautiful combination of traditional and contemporary practice.

Sydney Festival 2008

We love the way the city comes alive on balmy summer nights late, particularly when Sydney Festival is on. It never lets us down, and this year was no exception with terrific performances in Alas and Au Revoir Parapluie. We're already excited about next year.

Edit Launches


We're proud to be working with EDIT on their exciting new venture. Inspired by the possibility of re-imagining and recycling, EDIT sits between fashion and interior design with vintage textiles and classical furniture. At the Shapiro Gallery launch in Woollahra, co founder Sharyn Storrier-Lyneham - former editor of Vogue Living - remarked 'Edit is very much about breathing new life into already existing things. It's about having fun with decoration and adding touches of whimsy to interiors. It's decoration without explanation.'
