 Contemporary Paintings at Soho Galleries and Chifley Foyers 

Driving back from the optometrist after being told that I had a cataract appearing on my right eye, I spent some time thinking about Monets late garden paintings prior to his cataract operation. What I liked about them is the jumbled, muddled and fused edges, with a colour palate which battled for supremacy.

Some months later whilst having lunch, I found myself staring through a beautiful spray of red roses, augmented by gold wrapped Ferrero Roche chocolates presented in a cellophane wrapped basket which was to be given to a dear friend for her 60th birthday.

My vision was blurred as I tried to peer through the heads of roses to the white background beyond, becoming more absorbed in the way I was seeing, I began to purposely blur my vision even more.

What happened next was truly exciting. There appeared a fantastic arrangement of blended colour and unusual shapes that did not exhibit a definite edge, that most art school students, myself included, had struggled to capture in earnest during their art school drawing classes and here I was suddenly rejoicing that there were no edges. Immediately I recognised that I was crossing a visual path that I was keen to make much more of rather than surrendering the image as a passing glance.

Reaching for the camera, I began to shoot the images out of focus to exaggerate once again what I saw as being really unusual. Eighteen months later I began my attempts to describe this quirky visual effect, it was necessary to radically alter my painting method to employ finger painting, air brush and spattering in order to achieve the desired effect I was chasing. I fancy the latest suite of paintings may well be the signature to a new series of work... Soft Edge.

LARISSA SMAGARINSKY   at ARTPARK  & SOHO  Galleries  SYDNEY

 CONTEMPORARY BRONZE SCULPTURE

'The idea for a new direction in my recent work is to find harmony in movement and proportion, elegance and simplicity in form. This is all combined in 'Harmony,' 'Eternal Youth,'  "Olympic Spirit' and 'Wild dancers'. One look at these sculptures should fill you with excitement and pleasure and a desire to touch them. The human body forever feeds my imagination, inspiring me as an artist to create again and again. 

But only the moment of discovery within our self has the meaning, and moves the artist to find a new language for these creations.  We treasure only the moment of discovery within our self. 

The hidden parts of our innermost natures are analogous to the secrets of the cosmos. We are constantly trying to uncover them, displaying them in the light of our understanding.' Larissa is consistently intent on capturing moments, spirits and essences; so much so that her legacy will be clear to both present and future generations 

Larissa Smagarinsky draws the inspiration for her themes from a vast arena. Her stimuli come also from the Bible, ancient history, modern events and from human emotions. However her main interest has been and still is the human body in repose or movement. Movement fascinates the artist and many of her most successful works embody movement in sport,  gymnastics and dance. Some sculptures are just called 'Movement' (1993) others are more closely  defined eg: 'Crazy ballet' (1988) and 'Wild Dance" (2002). Her other great interest is in the  portrayal of love from mythology and the present. Larissa Smagarinsky explores its many aspects from the highly erotic in 'Lover's Ecstasy' (1990) and 'Tired Lovers' (1990)  to the maternal filial love and finally to the sublimated divine love in "Madonna" (1992).

Larissa is consistently intent on capturing moments, spirits and essences; so much so that her legacy will be clear to both present and future generations.

WENDIE MCCAFFLEY SCULPTOR 

MEDIUM & LARGE FORMAT SCULPTURE - 

FORGED STEEL SCULPTURE Exhibiting Soho Galleries and Art Park  SYDNEY

For the past 19 years I have worked in the medium of forged steel, predominantly on ornamental architectural ironwork commissions.   Working within a 1880s industrial blacksmithing workshop at the Eveleigh Locomotive Railway yards I have had the unusual opportunity of having some pretty serious gear at my disposal. I utilize machinery that was associated in the past with the forging of parts for steam Locomotives.  

In the  new series of sculptures the initial conception was to create feature pieces with a

 retro feel, to add groove to any space.   

Composing together irregular geometric shapes creates a strong visual effect and by means of certain methods some parts are in silhouette while others have more of a flat surface. These surfaces acquire an earthy textural quality during forging. It is this sort of immediate dimensional change in the steel that is so fascinating about forged steel. When hot it responds to the hand (or power hammer) at the bidding to the imagination.
