On September 12th, the Catherine Clark Gallery is opening two simultaneous exhibitions of work—Content Void Content and Haywire. Content Void Content includes mirrored sculptures by Andy Diaz Hope “which combine ancient mathematics, traditional craft, and modern technology to explore unlikely sources of transcendence.” Haywire is an exhibition of paintings by Kara Maria “which blend abstract and representational traditions in a visual dialogue about the bizarre, precarious, and yet alluring state of our environment.”

Skateboarding icon, painter, photographer, drawer, people-watcher, beautiful loser, #dailyhbpierphoto-er, and all around talented person, Ed Templeton, will be opening Common Side Effects, a survey of old work along with new paintings and drawings directly inspired from this immersion into his coastal suburban environment. Common Side Effects extends Templeton’s diaristic observances into a compelling visual analysis of the concrete experiences, perceptions, and idiosyncrasies of this hyper-local existence.

Throughout his long career, Richard Diebenkorn always kept a sketchbook—a portable studio—to capture his ideas. The books contain 1,045 drawings that span the artist’s career and represent the range of styles and subjects he explored—from deeply personal sketches of his wife, Phyllis, to studies of the figure, to grand landscape studies, to the development and maturation of Diebenkorn’s signature style, a rich blending of figuration and abstraction.

Bare: Degrees of Undress celebrates the candid, contrived, natural, sexy, ironic, beautiful, and fascinating in Australian portraiture that shows a bit of skin. Bare selects and remixes portraits from their collection around elements of nakedness. Fun and forthright, the exhibition will interrogate our instinctive, embedded and complex reactions to the bare. Surprising relationships appear, including portraits of Australia’s greatest sportspeople and foremost creative achievers.

Somewhere in an underworld, the Who riders battle the Lizard overlords, and David Jien is the grand puppeteer pulling the strings.
