Synthetica—a BLINDSIDE and NETS Victoria touring exhibition curated by Claire Anna Watson, presents sumptuous experimental works by seven of Victoria’s most cutting edge contemporary artists: Boe-lin Bastian, Simon Finn, Bonnie Lane, Kristin McIver, Kate Shaw, Alice Wormald and Paul Yore.

The artists use humorous, performative and theatrical devices to interrogate the role of nature and culture in the world around us. Their dramatic and oftentimes absurdist explorations reveal how a synthetic reality has been created through a collision between the creative mind and the material world.

Blacktracker is based on Michael Riley’s grandfather Alexander Riley, a legendary tracker who worked for the NSW Police Force from 1911 to 1950. Tracker Alex Riley of Dubbo, NSW, has done more to solve major crime, recapture jailbreakers and save lives than any other Aboriginal man in that state.

This beautifully made and penetrating film is a tribute to Tracker Riley, one of the greatest of all Aboriginal trackers as told by his family and descendants. His life encompassed a period of great oppression in the history of Aboriginal people, but, Tracker Riley’s legendary skills and deep humanity lifted him above the ignorance of the times.

His practice spanned conceptual photography, portraiture, film and documentary. Today his legacy continues, with his work still holding relevance within Australia and abroad.

Melanie Caple: I wake to see the world gone wild

from August 08, 2015 @ 8:00 PM until September 07, 2015 @ 2:00 AM
Latrobe Regional Gallery

The Dick Bishop Memorial Prize is an ongoing recognition to Richard (Dick) Bishop’s (1929-2004) commitment to supporting emerging artists. Throughout his life, Dick Bishop provided arts education, support and encouragement to many members of our community and assisted them to fulfil their creative potential. The Dick Bishop Memorial Prize is awarded to an emerging Gippsland artist.

Exploring the delicate and personal interactions that occur within the world, Melanie Caple’s exhibition navigates these themes and seeks to amplify and articulate the subtleties that surround us. Elevating the sprig of a silver dollar gum or the sliver of new moon, Caple aims to weave whimsical tales through the juxtaposition of subject matter.

Inspired by the nostalgia of romantic painters of old but Caple secures her techniques with Australian contemporary art. Using mediums such as graphite, ink, spray paint and gold leaf, Caple aims to create imagery that ignites the imagination, and allows aching hearts the chance to breathe.
