Sculptural Beauty
Sculptor Douglas Tausik Ryder an American artist whose organic, sensual “style is a tension between geometry and nature. He responds to the digital age with conceptual, digital, and analog practices. Tausik Ryder’s technology-assisted art making delivers expressive, crafted sculptures. His sculptures are CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machined after a series of creative interventions, then painstakingly assembled and hand-finished. His trial and error methods push against digital and industrial limitations informed by his decades of exploration in this area. He ignites a dialogue about what art is now and what it will be in the future. www.douglastausikryder.com

The Making of an Australian Style
Friends Fashion and Fabulousness by Dr Sally Gray now in its 2nd edition, linking fashion, art, sexual politics and diverse urban subcultures. A story of intelligent creative friends, encouraging one another energetically to live daily life, and of how the personal and political became profitable. It offers gossip, an intimate account of funny and ironic gestures; the excitement of the gay and feminist politics of the time, the interest of connections between figures in fashion, art and entertainment in Australia and overseas. She also reminds us of the confidence of creative Australians at the time.
