This site is mainly about painting. It offers reviews of current exhibitions, books and films, and discussion of philosophy and theory in art history and criticism. The views expressed are those of the author and all comment is copyright.
The site is currently still under development (2020) as I am beginning to work more intensively on issues in Australian art especially historical and technical aspects of landscape painting, which I am also developing in my own work. A separate portfolio site is under development.
Most images on this site are from photographs taken by me. All other images are drawn from public and commons sites or are credited individually.
Images are reproduced within the scope of fair dealing, including fair dealing for the purpose of criticism and review, and research and study – See more at: http://www.artslaw.com.au/info-sheets/info-sheet/legal-issues-for-bloggers/#sthash.qyWpF0u7.dpuf
Where galleries have given explicit permission for reproduction of images this is acknowledged in the individual review with sincere thanks.
Posts can be chosen by category – see list of topics at the side-bar. These discussions go back several years and reflect my changing engagement with art as a subject and experience. Alternatively by clicking on the Archives all the posts for a given month will appear.
Part of my art-making also involves photography including family history photography, landscape and the use of noir. For the photography collection, posts and comments visit Annette Hamilton’s Image Field here
