Winter has arrived and in spite of the cold and the rain and the occasional 140km/hour winds, there is no excuse to stay indoors! Here are some recommendations for a warm and h(e)arty month. Water seems to be a dominant theme – either its presence and abundance, or lack of. Best of wishes. Cassie 0416 209 391

Degas’s Night #4 2012 Rodney Pople
ABOUT A new series of paintings and sculpture by award winning Australian artist, Rodney Pople. This new work is inspired by the controversial wax sculpture, ‘The little fourteen-year-old dancer’, by Degas first shown publicly in 1881. The Degas sculpture was ‘widely denounced for its atypical realist portrayal of femininity and non-traditional use of media’. Pople, not afraid to be a little controversial himself, boldly presents these new works.
Gallery Australian Galleries, 24 Glenmore Road, Paddington

‘At Water’s Edge’
Photographs by Paul Blackmore
Cover art ‘At Water’s Edge’ Paul Blackmore
ABOUT This is a beautiful book and has been long awaited from Sydney photographer and photo-journalist, Paul Blackmore. I first saw a series from this work exhibited at Stills gallery about 5 years ago and was enthralled by these images back then. Paul’s book, containing almost 60 b&w duotoned images, explores the ‘relationship between humanity and its most vital natural resource’. 11 years in the making and spanning 14 countries, if you love photography, you will love this book. Available at Ariel and Berkelouw bookstores and all good bookshops. Published by T&G. Highly recommended!
