Art Taipei 2018 Ocula Report Art Taipei 2018 10 November 201810 Nov 2018 : Diana d’Arenberg for Ocula

'There is nothing more boring than the story of decline,' a journalist remarked at an art criticism panel I attended the evening before making the trip to see Art Taipei (26–29 October 2018). As I attended the opening night of Asia's oldest art fair, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, those words rang in my head. Wandering up and down...

Over the past ten years, Tsai has moved from writing to drawing, photography, and film—a selection of which is being presented at the Centre for Chinese...

Crush at Para Site: What if you couldn’t have it? Ocula Report Crush at Para Site: What if you couldn’t have it? 10 November 201810 Nov 2018 : Hera Chan for Ocula

Born in 1966, Australian artist Diena Georgetti has been exhibiting regularly since 1986.

Georgetti’s paintings may at first glance appear abstract but at their core is a personal element which Georgetti strives to communicate to both herself and the viewer.

Just how all pervasive this is, is evidenced in her working process: "In making these paintings a desperation is felt. In starting there is a yes, yes. Days pass, and disappointment begins. The painting isn’t as you need it to be. I take it with me through my day, and night life. I set it in the bathroom while I bathe. I arrange it amongst my interior furnishings, and invite social events for it to be present at. I look for it in the glow of the TV. I catch it in the mirror, all the while telling myself, ‘If you catch it unguarded, and you like it, it’s good. It’s a good painting.’ I continue testing it like this until it proves to indeed be a construction made of everyday activity, design, thought, object of the situation. If I am forced to cry in that time and the painting comforts me, it has passed and will survive. If it fails to comfort, it mocks, and will be destroyed". Diena Georgetti, catalogue entry, 21st Century Modern - 2006 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art published by the Art Gallery of South Australia, 2006.
