Luv a body

This painting Remasked by Ildiko Hammond embodies (scuse the pun) the theme of her latest exhibition at Luv a Coffee in Lismore.

Okay. I like Ildiko Hammonds work. Is it the lushness of the colour? Is it the thick textures (and to hell with the cost of paint)? Is it the obvious relish she has for her subject and medium? I dont know. Im no critic.

Her latest exhibition The Body is a celebration of human qualities like love, cheekiness, passion and of our connection to the natural.

Despite the controversy that her work may sometimes bring about (someone objected to the nakedness when she was hanging the exhibition but hey, thats the nature of nudes) Ildiko is following a long line of artists who use the human figure as a metaphor for their understandings.

The Body will officially open at Luv a Coffee Caf in Carrington Street in Lismore next Monday, August 14, from 6-8pm. The exhibition will run through to the end of September.

Rosanna has designs on female taboo

Artist Rosanna Pimm uses 3500 porcelain tampons to created her large scale performance installation  Riots of Passage in The Quad  as part of The Lismore Women's Festival on International Women's Day. Laying down and de-constructing the mandala structure symbolises the impermanence of the menstrual cycle and an end to female inequality in the world.
