Melbourne Now, 23 Nov - 23 March.

I’ve just finished installing for the up-and-coming opening of MELBOURNE NOW -  the largest initiative ever undertaken by the National Gallery of Victoria. Bringing together over 300 contemporary artists, Melbourne Now showcases the latest art, architecture, design, performance and cultural practice to reflect Melbourne’s extraordinary and unique cultural landscape (#melbournenow).

I am honoured to have been given a large space to create a unique installation titled Degustation which will include new and existing works. All will be revealed on the 23rd of November.

I'm excited about showing Degustation as I honestly believe the installation is the best work I have produced to date.

You can experience Degustation at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia at Federation Square from the 23rd of November 2013 - 23rd March 2014.

To kick start the opening weekend of Melbourne Now, I will be giving a talk at the Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia at Federation Square on the 24th of November (from 2:30pm to 3:00pm) and would love to see you there.

The Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize Winner 2013
Last month I was overwhelmed to receive the 2013 Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize for Sorrow - especially given the high quality of work submitted by all artists. It was even more special as it’s the third time I have been a finalist in this prestigious award.

I’d like to thank Art Gallery of South Australia director Nick Mitzevich and fellow judge, Professor Ian Howard from the College of Fine Arts for selecting Sorrow.

I’d also like to thank everyone who took the time to vote for Sorrow. I’ve recently been informed that Sorrow also won the 2013 Woollahra Viewers' Choice Award. I’m humbled and grateful for your continued support.

My thanks to Sir James Wallace and the judges.
