In March I responded to an invitation to witness a performance by my friend AñA Wojak at Redfern's 107 Projects. Being photographer was incredibly intimate; I was with her all the way, feeling (almost) what she was feeling. Extraordinary, exhausting, it was an absolute honour

An accomplished saxophonist himself, Mark Elliott deploys great humour and wit to his flameworking of glass sculpture. Mark's latest forays have been making sculptures that sound, some of them with remarkable notes.

107 Projects in Redfern St Redfern are renowned for hosting quite left-field performances and exhibitions of multi-disciplinary artforms. Glass + Wind was one such event on Wednesday evening, 29th March, and continuing thru to April 9th 2017.

Over the weekend April 1st - 3rd the former Knot Gallery celebrated the opening of their new premises in 107 Redfern St Redfern, with heartfelt thanks to tthe City of Sydney's generosity. They have taken over the disused fire station, empty for a very long time, given it a coat of paint and turned it over to artist's studios and gallery space.

To the accompaniment of beats by Monkfly for the Sunday night opening, the crowd got to see the results of an open house situation where all and sundry were invited to participate in painting, drawing, building and playing golf. I spent a very pleasant hour and a half early in the afternoon taking the psych test... I have no idea whether I passed, or what it all meant, but it was fun.

Over the Easter weekend I visited the Renaissance exhibition at the NGA (absolutely beautiful!) and took the opportunity to deliver one of my works which was sold to a dear friend some time ago: it has been hanging in my studio window for the duration, illuminated each night as advertising, mainly visible from the Aurora Hotel opposite. Stasis now resides in its new home in Westgarth St O'Connor.
