Issue 20

Issue 20 is our Fifth Anniversary Edition, with an extra 24 pages in the magazine to celebrate this milestone.

Issue 20 of ARTIST PROFILE goes into the studio of sculptor, Sam Jinks, whose life-like forms capture the expanse of an individual’s lifetime in a single moment. We hear from Jinks about what underpins his practice and artistic vision, Caroline Rothwell takes us through the untold stories from natural history that inform her sculptural practice that combines facets of contemporary existence with creatures now extinct.

Joe Furlonger’s paintings record his experience of Australian landscape and rural life, working from his studio and property in country Queensland.

Also in the issue, are emerging artists Claudia Damichi and Kristin Tennyson; we hear from Wendy Sharpe who roams the globe, painting portraits of the people around her; Andrew Christofides’ complex and abstract works draw on his cultural heritage, which we learn about in the lead up to his next solo exhibition; and we look at the intricately painted used-glass-bottles that make up the large installation works of Chinese artist Liu Zhouquan, with whom we caught up while he was in Sydney for this year’s 18th Biennale.

The Preview section of the magazine features essays and reviews; one on photographer John Bursill, and Glenn Barkley reports back to us about a significant collection of Indigenous art on exhibition at the Seattle Art Museum, USA, Ancestral Modern – the catalogue for which is yours to win by subscribing to the magazine. And we review the Cockatoo Island portion of Sydney’s Biennale, as well as solo exhibitions by Sean Cordeiro & Claire Healy, and Trevor Weekes.

Plus, in this fifth anniversary Special, there’s a 20-page photographic look back of ARTIST PROFILE’s first five years.
