Art Hamptons 2014
A MASSIVE SEPTEMBER MAGAZINE that looks to the Future Now as much as the past. The Substation’s annual award team-up with Victorian College of the Arts Honours graduates is in it’s third year and currently touring regional Victoria. We Meet the Artists as the show moves to Punctum in Castlemaine. We also meet New Zealander Jake Walker, who is pictured sitting in the tower window of architect Ian Athfield’s home in Wellington, where the artist lived for a time as a child in the late 70s. The impressive home’s surfaces and forms are frequently referenced in Jake’s work. He tells all and more in an interview with Naima Morelli. Plus printmaker David Frazer tells Klare Lanson about his Little Aches & Pains with songwriter Paul Kelly, we hear the big voice of a little country town in We Are Dookie, and Inga Walton brings a HUGE wedding glamour extravaganza to the feasting table as we kiss both Melburnin’ and ACTease goodbye for a while. On top of all that there’sComics Face, more madness in The Madness of Art … oh, and Ben’s still lost in the outback in Greetings from Beyond the Pale. It’s big and it’s cheesy. Share it around. COVER: Christina-Hayes, ‘Curses like Chickens come home to roost’ (detail) 2013, oil-on-linen.

Madness of Art special episode: Charlie Hewitt on Painting
“There’s something about a paintbrush that scratches an itch,” says artist and MoA co-producer Charlie Hewitt in this revealing and intimate interview. Charlie opens his studio to explain his process as he works on number of canvases. “It’s feral, done mostly by myself,” he says. “It’s so full of promise. It’s constantly telling me that I’m close … taking me to a point where there can be some kind of relief from all the experiencing, to something called completion.”
We’re catching up! The last episode of MoA Season 2 is featured in our July mag, out later this week.
