living the dream

A sunny Saturday with one of my favorite people, both of us in tiki-fabulous attire. Buying Richie Fahey’s Waikiki Wahine at The Outre Gallery sale (in black faux bamboo frame, obviously), a new panama at Smart Alec, a wander through the Victorian Hot Rod Show, and gelato at Il Melograno. So happy…

suzanne phoenix : suburban autos @ arts centre warburton

If you love cars and the northside, you must check out ‘Suburban Autos’ at Warburton’s Upper Yarra Art Centre. Suzanne Phoenix has taken some swell photos around Northcote, Thornbury, Coburg, Fitzroy, Pascoe Vale and Brunswick for this great show. Driveways, streetscapes, and sweet, sweet cars. Find it at 3409 Warburton Hwy, Warburton until March 3. Take a look at the image gallery on Suzanne’s website – the light in the gallery was not ideal when I visited, so all my photos turned out rubbish.

jim jimaggio : zamviza citizen @ off the kerb gallery

Jim Jimaggio’s vibrant artworks depict Melbourne buildings, cars, bicycles and the iPhone in a fresh and energetic way. Modern life looks fast, slick and very stylish in this show. Printed in editions of 5-10 using a process (of his own invention – Jim is a self-taught artist) called Volyfoamoir Stamp, this is bold, very affordable art. Zamviza Citizen opened on August 9, upstairs at Off The Kerb Gallery. On display until August 23.
