I was asked to curate the Winter stockroom show. I chose to explore the notion of what is it like to live in China. I did this by using the art made by the Chinese artists, and picking themes and images that suited my lived experience. The exhibition has been written up in City Weekend, TimeOut Beijing and China Pictorial. 

我有幸被邀请策划一次库存艺术品的冬季展览。我选择了探索在中国生活的真谛作为展览内容。我采用了中国艺术家的作品,并挑选符合我的生活经验的主题和画作。这次展览已经在City weekend, TimeOut Beijing China Pictorial上做了报导。

Season's greetings with a tree


It doesn’t feel like Xmas when it is -5 outside with snow, it feels like a ski resort. For most of my clients and friends you are enjoying Xmas parties and drinks which are a bit lacking in Beijing. So here is my greetings in this holiday season, though the Chinese will wait a month or so. The tree is by Laurens Tan an artist who keeps moving around the world. The tree was commissioned by The Opposite House and photographed for Red Gate Gallery.

This exquisite work is on display October to December 2012. it is stunningly beautiful. It was a great joy to photograph it. I can’t believe that the AGNSW passed up a chance to own one several years ago.
