In July 2015 three Perth artists, Jon Tarry, Stephanie Reisch & Joshua Cobb-Diamond, exhibited at Gallerysmith Project Space (VIC) in an experimental group show titled CRYPSIS.

Working along themes of codification, camouflage, secret exchanges and the unseen, the physical artworks were brought together and conceptually anchored within the gallery by an invisible sculpture that used augmented reality (AR) technology. Please join us to hear from Josh and Stephanie, who will elaborate on ideas and themes behind CRYPSIS. Josh and Stephanie will also discuss the collaboration with experimental architecture firm, FELIX, and sound artist, Alessio Morglia (ITA) in their attempts to reposition the art object in the realm of the non visual.

This will be the final studio night for 2015: please join us to celebrate the five year milestone!

Isobel Wise is the visual art curator at the City of Perth. Her talk stems from an interest in how contemporary photographers approach the interpretation of urban environments to demonstrate social paradigms. She will speak about works of art from a range of periods which allow viewers to consider collective and individual identity in reference to place.

The creation of these works become a point of reference for that which is physical, and are often purposely composed to include or exclude elements which signify social, economic or political happenings at a particular moment in time. Wise will reference Tolonen’s work Swan River Coordinates amongst others, to illustrate how we interact with and use the landscape in Perth as well as our impact on it in a physical sense.

Lyle Branson will be discussing his exhibition SURVEYING THROUGH THE LANDSCAPE, showing at Free Range Gallery in October. With photographic series that looks at the Perth urban landscape of the fraying edges that occupy between pathways that we travel and public and non-public areas that at times suggest the failure of the landscape in our urban surroundings. Lyle will also be discussing the dérive process of long walks he takes through the suburbs like Stirling, Coogee and Midland, and the camera as a method of understanding landscape.

Branson studied visual arts at TAFE and Edith Cowan University. He held a solo exhibition at Central Tafe ShowCase Gallery as part FotoFreo 2012, and had group shows at Breadbox, Perth Galleries and Perth Centre for Photography.

Stuart’s talk will range from ideas of indexicality, detritus and residue to industrial scarification:  As a young artist, I was transfixed by the gouges, scrapes and scattered fragments that signified the less than perfect fit of humans and their accessories to the various environments wherein they found themselves.  From this fascination, Fakeology evolved as a way of making sense of the world.   Traditionally, this has manifested in the constructed object/image either as a stand-alone or as part of an integrated installation.  Of late I’ve been drawn more to the documentation of reduction.  This involves the research and application of the processes and consequences of corruption and erosion.  For quite a period of time I was focused on the aesthetic of the relic, that which was left at the experiential tide line.  More recently my interest, both applied and in research, has returned to.

Talk ImageNatacha Suttor – Artists Online: Miik Green as a Case Study. What happens when an Artist/Researcher and Social & Digital Marketing Analyst start talking about artists’ digital & social media presences?

This talk will give an overview of Miik’s online presences, specifically his social media presences and discuss the delineations between them and Miik’s different, yet interlinked, identities as: Artist, Researcher and Other (Husband/Dad/Brother/Friend etc).  This talk will be a little more interactive, as I will be involving our studio night host in some of the discussion. It will explore the rationale for the delineations, the ongoing process of navigating and negotiating them, discussions we’ve had over the past year about content, learnings along the way, and identifying some areas of opportunity for both Miik and other artists.

Natacha is a digital & social marketing specialist, currently working in the WA’s tertiary education sector. She focuses on online, search and social marketing and strategy, especially within the research, creative and tertiary education frameworks, and how this translates between organisational level activities, and across professional, artist, researcher level activities.


Thanks to all of the artists involved, Linton & Kay and staff, and Merrick Belyea for the catalogue essay for CROSSGRAIN.
