Artists Statement…..Mark Reyment

Art is what happens when I’m busy making plans!  What starts out as a simple idea becomes increasingly complex, I like to play with disorder and my work reflects degrees of disorder frozen in time.

I often give my work whimsical titles, usually based on whatever was rattling around in my head at the time.

It’s not the fall that kills you (financial pressures)

The worlds strangest married couple (a reflection on love)

A Berlin crisis (feeling under siege)

A man of letters (self-depreciation).

These are things from everyday life given expression in Boxes, clouds, cages, flagpoles, scaffold, factories and towers, what seems chaotic is not quite so! There is a certain amount of order, but there is always a point where I just stop and say that’s it!

Tony Joe White @ Meeniyan Town Hall

April 15, 2017 @ 7:00 PM
Meeniyan Hall

Tony Joe White was literally born for the blues, the part-Cherokee musician being brought up as part of a big brood on a cotton farm in Louisiana, raised on a diet of Lightnin’ Hopkins and local bluesmen, an upbringing reflected to this day in his evocative, haunting music and adding a veneer of authenticity to everything that he touches.

So whether you’ve been with White for the duration or are a newcomer to his incredible music it matters not – come along and join the festivities when the legend that is Tony Joe White hits Australia in 2017.
