A winner in the first Belle ArtStart prize, Sally Anderson depicts interior spaces in both senses of the phrase. Her layered compositions weave still-life objects drawn from domestic environments with landscapes that flash like remembered snapshots conjured by the artist's inner world. This painterly patchwork of physical and metaphorical fragments seems encapsulated by the title of her new show, 'Seabed Bedspread', on view at Edwina Corlette gallery in Brisbane from October 22. The works suggest a second-hand experience of place through memory and feature flowers with deep symbolic resonance for the artist.
An abundance of at-home streaming is no match for the ritual of cinemagoing – and film lovers don't have long to wait for its return. The Sydney Film Festival has launched its 2021 program with tickets now on sale for an array of movies playing at the State Theatre and other venues from November 3-21. From the Palme d'Or-winning provocation Titane to the latest masterpieces from auteurs Jane Campion, Pedro Almodóvar and Apichatpong Weerasethakul – as well as a retrospective for the late Abbas Kiarostami – the line-up is a suitably starry comeback. Paolo Sorrentino's The Hand of God (shown) forms part of the Official Selection.
One of the glitterati for decades and always the life of the party, the incomparable Grace Jones is immortalised here in just one of many pictures captured by Australia's own glitterati of the paparazzi, Robert Rosen, during his four decades of shooting the absolutely fabulous. The celebrity snapper's candid shots of subjects as varied as Yves Saint Laurent and Lady Sonia McMahon will make you long for the pre-Insta era! 'Robert Rosen: Glitterati' is one of five exhibitions launching at the Powerhouse in Sydney with the museum's reopening on Monday.
Paying homage to the divers who have scoured the ocean floor for Paspaley's precious pearls for more than 85 years, the brand's latest collection, 'Dive', is adorned with undersea motifs. From engraved mother-of-pearl coins and keshi pearl and diamond shark charms to necklaces that hint of anchor chains and tasselled ropes of lustrous pearls, every piece conjures the old-world romance of the pearling venturers, and can be layered and personalised to taste with captivating designs for both men and women.
