The Shadow

"Between the idea / And the reality / Between the motion / And the act / Falls the Shadow . . . For Thine is the Kingdom"

01 November 2006

More aesthetic than ascetic

Arguably the most anticipated event of November, the unveiling of Peter McGuiness's latest exhibition, is only days away. Peter is Tdix's favourite artist and The Shadow's biggest fan, and so this obscure journal finds itself lurching headlong into the world of plugging.

The wonderfully titled Songs from Illawarra Road, 'The Movie' will kick off on Saturday night at the
Gladstone in Dulwich Hill. Peter has a way with names. Other exhibitions of his include Fictitious album covers for a non-existent Chinese, jazz-rock ensemble and The Floating World.

Pictured is a segment from 'Never Mind' which I like because of the jacaranda-like purple colour. I also like the yellow ones. For a better look at Peter's work you can go

It promises to be a great evening. The barbecues will be firing up from about 6pm in the beer garden out back, hopefully under the sinking sun of a balmy Daylight Saving evening, and then at eight will come the debut of the ever-enigmatic Slideshow Man.

Cheers to the beauty of creation and creativity!

Seeing I named both the artist and the artwork, I'm going to give myself 10 points.

After last night's revelation 'I' am feeling more objective. 'Me' is Slideshow Man.

And I hope all of Marrickville slept soundly and will continue to do so, safe in that knowledge.
