Ken and Julia Yonetani are noted for their use of unusual materials like salt and sugar to make objects of exquisite beauty which underscore the impact of human activity on the environment.

Uranium glass, which is both beautiful and radioactive, is the chosen medium for their latest exhibition, Crystal Palace: The Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nuclear Nations. It is a response to the recent and disastrous Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant incident which followed a major earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

The work is showing at Artereal Gallery, 747 Darling Street, Rozelle in Sydney

Nathan Taylor: Loved to death

September 13, 2012 4:00 am to September 29, 2012 4:00 am September 13, 2012 4:00 am to September 29, 2012 4:00 am

Nathan Taylor is a painter of the landscape of urban Australia, documenting the overflowing bins and worn pavements of suburban streets. Taylor’s landscapes give prominence to carefully designed objects that have been worn through use and then often simply discarded. They re-include these abandoned objects through kind attentiveness and profound devotion.
At some point in the future we will find ourselves explaining to a credulous audience just how we lived our lives and Nathan Taylor’s paintings will help us do that.
