Graduation Night

December 18, 2010

For better or for worse… it’s done. I now have a Bachelor of Photography. And a Life again…

… At least until I start Honours next year. It’ll be a struggle, but hey.. what in life isn’t?

Unfortunately I had to do it all alone last night, with Jean in Tasmania collecting her own ‘Master of Contemporary Art’ and Mum and Dad not able to make it due to health reasons. Thankfully Simon and Justine were there to help fill my belly with wine and curry on our ‘special night’  :p

But here’s a quick photo from last night’s graduation with my great friend Fidi. One of the other people that helped make it a little bit pleasant. Thanks Fidi and I will see you in LA (one day)   🙂

To everyone that has been positive, Thank you. Especially Jean-Maree, who has helped me work my way through all this with a minimum of bloodshed    :p

To the people that have been negative, Thank you too. You have helped me focus.

Ok, thanks for reading. It has been a remarkable year.

Much Love,

Ian

 

Oh and I got this photo from Renata Busiak, it’s from the Pine Rivers Regional Gallery’s ‘SNAP!’ exhibition which closes soon. I’m so pleased to be hung alongside Renata, she is awesome!!

Wrap up

December 5, 2010

Well the week was awesome and last night’s Luke Roberts Opening at the IMA was brilliant. Not only was the work beyond expectation, but the whole event was great. Even the band (Jezabels) were great.

It was great to catch up with some of Brisbane’s greats and have a chat with Luke himself. Do yourselves a favour and get into the IMA and see the show.

Friday night was good too and as the photo shows, I was hung next to Renata Busiak in the SNAP show at the Pine Rivers Regional Gallery.

It was a great show and featured Walter Stahl, who I have exhibited with at the QCP. On the whole it was a great week and really good to catch up with people in the scene.

Christmas next…
