I recommend everyone to checkout Kubota Fumikazu’s show (UN)FORTUNATELY NO LONGER HUMAN at Blindside in Gallery Two from 29 Feb – 17 Mar 2012.
In a world where we can so easily create lines using digital media, it is refreshing to see such intricately beautiful hand drawn elaborate graphic drawings. You feel like you want to dive into his oddly un-human world of lines and negative space.
This is Kubota Fumikazu standing next to my favorite work in the show. It is a must see in person.
Installation view below.
On a side note his also had nice business cards and price list. Oh yes the prices were also very reasonable price started at $800.

So Linden Postcard Show has been running since 1991, this year being the 21st annual Linden Postcard Show. Every year hundreds of small format contemporary artworks by artists from all over Australia are shows in a salon style hanging at the Linden Centre for Contemporary Arts.
Since the Linden Postcard Show has been running for so long it is not a Hidden Gem, however amongst the hundreds of small artworks they have up, you can sometimes find some amazing artworks(Hidden Gems). There are even artworks selling for $1, so collectors go on the hunt for the great bargains. Unfortunately all the works I wanted was already sold out.
For Artists, this is a cheap and easy way to show and sell your artwork as well as having a chance to win up to $5000 award money.
This year’s winner was Dan Price The Architecture of Happiness graphite on paper. I hunted it down and found myself amazed by this little beauty.
