DIRECTOR and CURATOR, KAB Gallery, Terrigal

way to grail is a fantastic work of art. Mark Paulin’s method of relief carving is clean, precise and detailed. The surprising beady green eyes and redback spiders are very unique postmodern inclusions to a piece which would otherwise appear fairly traditional. The nature of the beautiful woods used in this work are allowed to shine through the light lacquer, acting as another focal point. This functional work is quirky and would require the taste of a unique collector to find the perfect position for it.

FAIR DIRECTOR, The Other Art Fair

This unique and detailed cabinet is not for the faint-hearted! It’s full of character and is further personified by two piercing blue eyes and big, chunky, claw-like feet. I’m left questioning the motivation behind the placement of two redback spiders – something that would deter me from having this in my home! You are, however, instantly aware of the level of skill required in creating a work like this. I can imagine this living in and amongst other eccentric pieces, with equally eccentric homeowners.
