Judy Annear 5th Mar 2012

Delving in to the lecture series for another week we explored in depth the career of Bill Henson with guest speaker Judy Annear. Annear is an art curator for the Gallery of New South Wales and worked with Henson on his exhibition ‘30 years of work’.

Bill Henson first explored his artistic talents at the age of 19 holding his first exhibition in 1974. Henson explained early on the importance of sequencing in his work stating that “all pieces from a work should be able to be a single image”. He also states that his work never obtains a linear narrative, for the audience ‘their is no narrative… its all in your head’. I personally was intrigued by Annear’s reference to his working referring to it as music, this idea that his works are like songs able to bring about images that float in your head creating a collection of images that revolve continuously in your mind highly emphasises Henson’s idea’s of artworks being like eery childhood memories or dreams constantly floating in the minds unknown. It is clear that Henson’s works obtain a talent of being able to create a gateway beyond them. Henson’s work has a talent of bringing forth themes within them, through his use of structure and tequniques, selection of light, print size, paper and editing Henson is able to depict works that create intimate images that possess an eery and creepy atmosphere that is undoubtedly beautiful and tenderness. 

Through the decades of Henson working we can see that his works have always, to some degree, held the same elements. As Annear stated we can see that ‘the longing and loss of his models is as potent now to his imagery as it was in his works in the 70’s’. Hensons works are using the physical image to create the content of modern imagination and through our experiences of fear and terror allows beauty to transcend. Henson stated that ‘the critical thing in photography is being able to create a work that is beautiful, intimate and event tenderness…’ and it is clear that his work has achieved this numerous times over in his artistic career.

I personally enjoyed the content of Judy Annear’s lecture although to a certain extent it seemed to just recount Henson’s life over the last 40 years I still found it highly intriguing, it is clear that Annear has a deep understanding of Henson as an artist and from Annears lecture I have found a deeper appreciation for Henson as a photographer and his works. 

To indo tomar aquela cervejinha gelada! Alguém quer se juntar?

Se terça-feira tá assim, imagina quando o feriado chegar. Haha! :)

E ter você por perto era tudo o que eu queria, mas eu sei que o que vivemos não passou de fantasia. Eu digo não mais! Não mais olhar para trás. É como transformar a cicatriz numa ferida, agora afirmo que você não vai voltar à minha vida…

Amor é fogo que arde sem se ver;
É ferida que dói e não se sente;
É um contentamento descontente;
É dor que desatina sem doer.

É um não querer mais que bem querer;
É um andar solitário entre a gente;
É nunca contentar-se de contente;
É um cuidar que se ganha em se perder.

É querer estar preso por vontade
É servir a quem vence o vencedor,
É ter com quem nos mata lealdade.

Mas como causar pode seu favor
Nos corações humanos amizade;
Se tão contrário a si é o mesmo amor?

—  Luís Vaz de Camões
E mesmo com tudo diferente, veio mesmo, de repente
Uma vontade de se ver
E os dois se encontravam todo dia
E a vontade crescia, como tinha de ser

Gandhi disse que o que quer que você faça na vida, será insignificante. Mas é muito importante que você faça. Porque ninguém mais fará. Como quando alguém entra na sua vida, e metade de você diz que não está preparado. Mas a outra metade diz: Faça que ela seja sua para sempre.

ORANGE, Mass. (WWLP) – Firefighters in eastern Franklin County had a lot of work to do Monday morning; dealing with dangerous issues caused by our latest snowstorm.

Orange Fire Chief Dennis Annear told 22News that they had several calls throughout the morning and they had to provide assistance both in town and in nearby communities.

Around 11:00 A.M., they sent an ambulance to Warwick for a man that fell off a roof while trying to clear snow.  He was taken to a hospital in Greenfield.

Also just after 11 A.M., there was a one car crash on Tully Road in Orange.  One man was taken to a nearby hospital.

Then at 11:45, a car hit a telephone pole on East Main Street.  Two women were taken away on stretchers to a nearby hospital. but are expected to be okay.

Earlier in the morning, firefighters and the building inspector received a call about a vacant building that collapsed at 701 East Main Street. The owner, who used to be a plumber, died this past September. According to the fire department, the latest bit of snow was just too much for the roof to handle.

The town’s building inspector is now trying to get into touch with the family member that inherited the property.
