The first of many
Hamish Gordon has been a busy boy. In the past six years he has written 14 albums worth of songs, completed hundreds of paintings in various styles, written short stories, poetry and two film scripts, as well as an allegory of nine books, one of which he has completed, with the other eight in various stages of production.
Hamish will be bring his work out of the studio and into the gallery for an exhibition called Parte the Firste at the Spareroom Artspace at 71 Molesworth St, Lismore.
Gordon’s paintings traverse the styles of figurative drawing, impressionism, post-impressionism, pointillism and abstract expressionism , and he has developed his own form that he calls abstract relief, which is a commentary on the role technology must play in shaping a global cultural identity.
The exhibition will feature his paintings as well as his first rock album (also titled Parte the Firste) and his first sci-fi fantasy novel, The Carthian Chronicles, which received a rave review from The Australian’s Carolyn Beaumont.
Opening night is this Friday, May 7, from 5pm with champagne and canapés to satisfy your palate while the work occupies your mind.
