PAINTING MILL v3 – WONDERWALLS FESTIVAL



James Dodd, Painting Mill v3, Wonderwalls Festival, Port Adelaide, Aptil 2017 from James Dodd on Vimeo.

This is the third significant variation of the Painting Mill project. It was a great pleasure to be part of the Wonderwalls festival and to be able to connect with such a large and diverse audience. Similarly, it was great to pursue a mural – like outcome and work at a larger scale in a similar context to other large paintings occurring during the festival.

In many ways this was a bit of a test run for the new variants, though maybe I find myself always testing things when I present the Painting Mill.
I will be pursuing a few more tweaks in the next couple of months before the work is included in a group exhibition, titled Dream Machines, at Hazelhurst Regional Gallery.

WONDERWALLS PORT ADELAIDE

This year’s Port Adelaide Wonderwalls festival will add an exhibition component to its already overflowing line-up of visiting artists and over-sized wall painting. I’m pumped to have been invited and have been working on a new variation of my Painting Mill project to present. Come down to Hart’s Mill on the weekend after Easter for a squiz. In the meantime you can check out recent updates on my project here.

ADELAIDE CENTRAL SCHOOL OF ART – SUMMER SESSIONS



Stencil Workshop as part of ACSA Summer School 2017 from James Dodd on Vimeo.

Adelaide Central School of Art hosts a number of workshops throughout the year, specifically targeted at inviting high school students to undertake projects at the school’s Glenside campus. We believe that this is a great way to nurture creative potential and to give further insight into what happens at a tertiary level creative school. As part of a broader program including other drawing and sculpture workshops a gave an introduction to basic stencil techniques and their use in creating texture and pattern. I built this into a larger context of working in teams to create fantastic creatures which could become large scale and dynamic.
