BENDIGO HOSPITAL AT SUNSET, WINTER 2021
http://www.sharongreenaway.com

 

Last September I was diagnosed with a blood cancer, Multiple Myeloma.

My first appointment with an oncologist took place at the cancer clinic at Bendigo Hospital. I remember entering the building for this appointment feeling as if I were in a bad dream.

Treatment for this chronic disease began also at this hospital in the Oncology ward.

After some time I began to be comfortable here and welcomed the routine of treatment that meant I could walk without using a walking stick and be without pain.

Exercise physiology was another form of treatment that gave me confidence in my body once again.

Now 8 months later the myeloma is gone, hopefully for years.

I wanted to celebrate this building that holds many people within its walls, all with their own hopes and fears.

Greenaway’s Art Gallery & Museum

Over the last few months I have posted the occasional photograph of my miniature art gallery and museum.

I thought I would put together a simple timeline of how it is coming together.

There will be one gallery space that won’t be filled until close to the exhibition time which will be in October 2021.

The exhibition will be held at Dudley House Bendigo with four other artists more details will come closer to the time.

This still empty space will feature the miniature works of all five Artists.

March 24: Mystery

Such a poignant story

On This Date in Photography: by James Mcardle

Date #24The found photograph presents a mystery that invites the viewer to find a solution, or to give it new meaning.

A friend, photographer Jim McFarlane alerted me to Untitled.Showa which invites you to…

…interact with a collection of old photographs from Japan, found in Australia, to solve a historic puzzle with the view to collectively finding ways to (re)unite the original prints to the people in the photographs, their family, the copyright holder/s or to an appropriate archive, and in real time, participate in the unfolding of a contemporary story.

imageIt’s an engaging game, because all 308 photographs appear to have been taken in Japan between 1930s-60s, but were found in Geelong, Australia, in 2015. None were taken here, and yet a seller had acquired them from a deceased estate. But who was the deceased? The stall-holder at the flea market in Geelong could provide no answers, so it is…

Sneak peak at how the mini art gallery is progressing

I am working a lot on this gallery as it needs to be ready for a group exhibition in September.

Here is a sneak peak of one of the galleries.

Miniature art 2021

Last year I discovered room boxes and created my first one. I was intrigued with the concept of miniature art and wanted to create more.

It has taken me many months but finally I’m getting back into it, having purchased secondhand a dolls house which while it’s not 1/12th scale I will convert it to be suitable.

Much thanks to Bill Greenaway for taking these images.

In order to create the art gallery I need a blank canvas, a cream colour will allow flexibility.
