Claudia Karvan for Noah Taylor at Olsen Irwin Works on Paper Gallery..

I did not catch the explanation, however Noah Taylor was unable to attend this opening of his 'New Works' show; which of course made it impossible for me to make an artist at their opening portrait of him for my collection! Never mind, the crowd was great; Claudia Karvan is of course simply gorgeous, gave the opening speech on Noah's behalf; and I will get that portrait another time!

From the look of the artworks and the one in the window in particular I think Noah may have been reading the Russian masterpiece The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. A bizarre novel which features a large walking, talking, black cat which gets up to all sorts of mischief, and there's a magician too, in the novel, the Master I think, it's been a while.. Anyway artists are a lot like magicians in that they make wonderful things appear where previously there was nothing at all. Noah's works look great, bold strokes, black ink, white paper, magic! And there were plenty of people spilling out of the gallery and across the sunny Woollahra pavement in the lovely winter light and those people were kind enough to let me snap their style for Street Fashion Sydney; and here they are.
