I have only been at the helm of Australian Design Review for a couple of months, but already I am inspired by just how vibrant and thought-provoking the Australian architecture and interior design industry is. I was born in Melbourne, but spent the past decade living and working in Florence, Italy. Like so many Aussies, I was awestruck by the feats of the European masters who had a centuries-long head start. Returning to Melbourne, I am taken aback by how much the city has changed, how it has grown and embraced its identity. The last time I explored these streets, I was a journalism student at RMIT University, completely oblivious to the fact that I walked, daily, through the doors of one of the city’s most iconic buildings – Ashton Raggatt…

Janet Laurence: After Nature Editor: Rachel KentPublisher: MCA AustraliaDistributor: MCA AustraliaRRP: $69.95 More a magnificent monograph on a magnificent artist than an exhibition catalogue, despite the accompanying MCA exhibition of the same name. The essays are exceptional. Whenever there is an essay by Terence Maloon it pays to give your full attention and this is no exception. Choosing the Alchemy of Janet Laurence, Maloon skips through history with purpose and poise, with never a redundancy and always a fresh way to look at what we thought we understood. The book itself is a careful and considered photographic essay on one of Australia’s most important artists working in the field of plants. Laurence is also one of the few artists to understand how architecture and art work as a continuation or dialogue of…

As an architectural photographer Dianna Snape is one of Australia’s best. During her 19-year career she has documented some of this country’s most iconic buildings; however, departing from her usual realm of architecture and interiors, the Lines and Tangles exhibition explores the astounding landscape of a country close to her heart, Tanzania in East Africa. The collection of aerial images was first showcased at The Print Room at Gollings Studio, Melbourne and subsequently moved to the Melbourne Stylecraft showroom. Understanding that art belongs in a home, Stylecraft welcomed the collection to complement its furniture and objet-filled interior, and together the art and objects coalesce perfectly in sync within individual groupings or vignettes. The images present a landscape saturated with the colours of sun and drought where only the occasional baobab tree grows…

[1] Cornelia Parker MCA, Sydney 8 November 2019 – 16 February 2020 It is impossible to talk about Cornelia Parker without dissolving into clichés of hyperbole. That said, she is one of the best artists working today full stop. She is known for her extraordinary works that seem to capture moments of intense explosion as a still and calm event, where particles and time are suspended. Magnificent and immersive, her works range from the undulating walls and ceiling of red, which on closer inspection are revealed as the paper remains of the sheets from which remembrance poppies have been cut, to the room of suspended rocks, each piece is an astonishing record of transformation. The exhibition, curated by Rachel Kent, will include work from across her oeuvre to include sculpture, installation, drawing,…
