How to take a photo with Facebook
Yesterday it was time to check out a few back lanes for street art and visit a couple of local galleries in Enmore Road. Art street?
Plump Gallery in Enmore is running a solo exhibition, "embodied", by Grace Kingston.
I thought her installation, "How to take a photo with Facebook" was good fun.
The OH REALLY gallery in Newtown is running "Interrupted Focus", a selection of work by several local artists.
David Grenhalgh's "Force Fed" has an air of appealing menace. Linda O'Toole's "Trelease" is a gentler work.
Finally, an unusual piece of street art.
While there are a few places around Sydney where it's legal to wield spray cans on public surfaces (I'll visit a couple of them in due course), most street art is illegal and how long it lasts before it is scrubbed out depends on the local council area in which it appears.
This piece is actually a nice juxtaposition of a paste-on work by SLE33PWALK and a pole wrapped in knitted wool by grrl+dog.Plump Gallery
