Transitioning from a bustling city to an isolated region of the world can really stir up feelings and emotions. There is a stark contrast between being surrounded by crowds of people and then being immersed in crowds of trees. The crowds of people are buzzing with energy and emotion and can make one feel uneasy. Whereas being surrounded by trees, plants and nature can have the opposite effect. The uneasy feeling is replaced with calm and connection.
This is what I experienced when arriving in Queenstown, Tasmania for the Q Bank art residency. Wrapping up a busy 2018 in Melbourne where the population is growing at a rapid rate, I was feeling suffocated. That feeling lifted almost immediately as I arrived in Tasmania. I took in the space, colours, landscape, houses and environment in Queenstown and it inspired me to create this body of work. The colours, subject matter composition and styling are all a result of my time in nature and daily walks around Queenstown.
There are two sides to this exhibition. One being the dense population of inner city Melbourne. The other being the spaciousness and wilderness of the west coast of Tasmania.

The mountains we climb is just as much about
self exploration, as it is about Japan.
Ed’s work has always explored two sides of the human experience, The moment in time, and the effect and the memory of it, the re interpretation and the re processing of a glimpse..
That’s exactly what Ed does in exploring Japan, and its sensations. Its layers of feeling, through the chaos of
Tokyo to the stillness of Kanazawa hills.
Each image is broken down into fragments, with slabs of colour, texture and tone, that symbolise the experience, weather by night or day, dusk or after dawn. This is a time capsule of travel, but also of the struggle and exploration each of us go through in growing as people and evolving beyond what we know.
The mountains we climb is about pushing limits of understanding. Exploring that place that brings discomfort, pushing the elements of your processing ability. For Ed he has done just this with his exploration of abstraction, and re interpretation.

Nfa.gallery has some of Australia’s biggest street artists on board and a once in a life time space to boot. They will be donating some proceeds to the Macedon Ranges Wildlife Network to help with all the local animals that have been injured in the recent fires.
We caught up with a couple of friends (Jess & Terissa), who were helping out at Skalitzers Contemporary Art for the first solo show in Berlin by internationally acclaimed Belgian artist ROA.
“ROA is famous for his large-scale depictions of animals on city walls around the world, ROA brings the creatures which inhabit the fringes of human society back to the metropolis to expose the natural beauty in the cycle of life and death.”
ROA is a brilliant street artist from Ghent, Belgium and is renowned for his giant black and white animal pieces around the city streets and buildings of the world. Today, Roa’s artwork is seen from New York to Berlin and Warsaw to Paris. His style is well suited to the semi derilict buildings and structures you can see his ‘bigger than life’ work on and I’m really impressed with him pushing the envelope in the street art scene.
The night before we hit up my mates Restaurant / Bar Maria Peligro in Kreuzberg for a double denim party. Was a great evening and ended up in McDonalds drinking beers and eating cheeseburgers in the wee hours of the morning.
