Just like the Fox at the eclipse, Vali Myers has turned up in an uncovered collection of rolls of film now being displayed in a street photography exhibition at the Museum of Sydney. This was taken in May 1950 in Sydney and would have been in the weeks before she boarded a ship for Paris at the age of 19, leaving Australia to trust her vision of being an artist. She is wearing a favourite outfit, a green corduroy pants suit that she told me infuriated many men and women too at the time who would call her names and confront her on trains and on the street in Melbourne. Hard to believe isn’t it. But look at her face. She knew herself even then. In her satchel are her drawings and she took little else with her as she sailed away. Thanks for the eclipse reminder Vali - authenticity is the only way. .
Available in 3 weeks for our next Pop-Up is this incredible work by one of our newest artists; Josh Fartch. It’s so moody, mysterious and so bloody lovely! And wait until you see the size... Ohhh La La!! So pencil ✏️ in the 8th of August at 7pm as we fling the doors open for our ‘BiG Art’ Pop-Up. If you’ve got the walls, then we’ve got the art! @joshfartch

I’m really happy with how this one turned out. These really capture my imagination - they are like tiny little worlds trapped inside.
