Hermès Summer Party

September 16, 2014

Wonderful to be able to share with you my recent commission by Hermès Germany for their 2014 summer party celebrating the theme ‘Métamorphose’. I created three fantastical headdresses for the event and you can see them all in detail HERE.

This coming Friday night the ever popular ArtBar at the MCA will be happening.

Curated by Pip & Pop, this month’s theme is Japan – one of my favs. Paperform was nominated by The Japan Foundation to take part, so I’ll be taking over a whole room on the night. I’m currently in the studio creating a host of new works to be displayed.

Should be an exciting night of all things 日本語 – See you there!

Paperform + Henry Wilson

Can finally share with you my latest collaboration for good mate Henry Wilson.

‘Paperweight’ was a design challenge issued by Henry for myself and fellow paper wiz Bianca Chang. With two interlocking brass cones to form a base, Henry asked us to create softer expressions using paper in a fusion of materials, shape and functionality.

My folding paper shades (no glue!) are off to the Milan Salone this week with Henry as part of The Other Hemisphere exhibition curated by Sarah K.

Very proud to be exhibiting something in Italy this year!

Paperform for ‘The Human Environment’

February 18, 2014

AxisMundi

Tonight in Sydney there will be an opening for The Human Environment, an exhibition held to raise funds for newly formed Climate Council.
After the Australian government recently cut funding to the former Climate Commission, local fashion brand Sark Studio was motivated to rally and lend support.
In conjunction with the creative minds from The Glue Society twenty renowned artists from different creative disciplines were asked to submit an image which contained a shirt by Sark Studio.
The photographs are available through online auction (ending on February 23) with 100% of funds being donated to the Climate Council. It’s a worthy cause!
My image ‘Axis Mundi’ was created with the help of talented photographer Bowen Arico.
