On the Rivet - Art & Fashion - Well we like that!

And I like it when my weeks meanderings turn into some sort of mostly coherent visual significance; and photography for you. My first show of the week (starts 3rd shot down) was Tyrannium by Dionysos Anton at KUDOS Gallery which features youth-style inspired art and a number of jackets that had been artified as well as rugs/wall hangings from upcycled fabrics, the denim wall work is pictured below. All along with a collection of drawings large and small and sculptural pieces that were not 'fashion' a billy/go-cart (looked like a dad build to me); a forest of stakes.. a video edit of Japanese Godzilla animations - everything a budding young heart could desire - and I loved it!

Of course it's also VIVID Sydney so I have been prowling around working on my 2016 VIVID photographic project. Which is just how I came to bump into two of the artists who were servicing their artworks, which were a little worse for wear after the terrible weekend weather.. Then last night the Duchamp meets Non-Objective works of Joe Wilson & Chanelle Collier at their show ART THAT DOES at Mils Gallery; and a diversely stylish art crowd very much in evidence. All of which was capped off by the jacket, patches, rings and tattooed fingers of the lady immediately below; as I left the Shakespeare Hotel after a steak and chips and another glass of ale. As always lots to see in Sydney, these shows are all on now; links below.
