The Artist as genial host.
Having known Jeff for some time we were very excited to have a sneak peek of his latest work "Back of House" just before the official launch. I was particularly looking forward to seeing the finished works having viewed several pieces "in progress" at Jeff's Appleton Street Studio.
The first "Back of House" exhibition was part of our own Melbourne Food and Wine Festival last year and took us on a journey through the Kitchens of some of our best local restaurants. In this series, the kitchens of Sydney have been explored.
This appears to be the first and longest event of the Sydney International Food Festival and is being held at the Shapiro Gallery until October 14.
Just before we left the launch starts, yes, that is Otto Fink.
Some of the art on display:
Icebergs and Aria
Marque and Guillaume at Bennelong
The mark with many fingers.
