Live Painting with Uncle Richard Campbell
Uncle Richard Campbell, one of the survivors from the Kinchela Boys’ Home, will be doing a live painting in collaboration with Christophe Domergue on Saturday 14 October.
The work will be painted with the notion of “painting away the pain”. When he was taken from his family and placed in the home, he would sketch to pass the time away and ease the pain of being removed from his family. Uncle Richard is responsible for the illustrations that form the ‘We were just little boys’ animation.
Buy Art, Win Art
For every $500 you spend on artwork at the fair you’ll receive an entry to win the original artwork ‘Holographic parallelograms’ by Christophe Domergue, valued at $6,000. The more art you buy, the more chances you have to win.
Christophe Domergue is a Sydney-based artist known for his unique “Peeling” process. He uses resin and pigments to physically peel urban landscapes’ layers, revealing the hidden stories lurking beneath. His art embraces collaboration and surprise, inspired by his childhood fascination with industrial sites and 90s rave culture. He aims to showcase beauty in overlooked aspects of life, similar to the Japanese tradition of Kintsugi, celebrating imperfections.
Holographic Parallelograms captures the surreal essence of a city viewed through altered perception in a Sydney warehouse. Vivid hues of orange, pink, and burgundy interplay with whites, creating a pulsating tapestry. The textured layers evoke a sensory journey, inviting viewers to explore the liminal space between reality and reverie.
