Booooooom Reader Submissions: January


This is an OPEN CALL for you art and photography! I discovered so many amazing artists this past year in our monthly reader submissions posts. Just a reminder that this is not only a chance to share your work but to compliment and build up others in this community – they’re all your peers!

Not everything submitted will be featured, but keep in mind these posts often get well over 1,000 comments so you can imagine the amount of people who will see your work here. You have the ability to vote up work you see in here, it does help me to see the kind of work that the readers are really feeling.

Excited to see what you all share this month and all this year!


Submission Guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.

  • Henry Pucknell

    Woah thats fantastic

  • Beautiful!

  • Sweet line work

  • Nice drawings and very original!

  • Cool what you made of this sleeve. I used to have a few of these records. They were pop and disco hits played by other bands, not the original artists, I think I remember.

    • James Connolly

      You’re right Wouter, they are cover versions of hits from the day.
      I would always find these in junk shops so I decided to give them new life.

    Hi all!
    Visit the CAG during gallery hours 12-6p from January 26th to 31st to see Boudreau’s cool performance ‘Lying Bodies, Standing Bodies’! Free!

    Deceptively simple, Lying Bodies,
    Standing Bodies (2014) is structured as a durational loop by two people. One performer stands observing another lying on the gallery floor until they tire, then exchanging places. The period of each interval is determined by the performers, a continual role reversal described.
    Set in the Alvin Balkind gallery, the viewer happens upon this intensely
    intimate act as it unfolds daily.

  • Nice photos! Fuji Velvia? I like how you have presented your photos on the website.

    • Thanks! i am glad you like the presentation, i’ve been very insecure about it, didn’t know if it was too crazy or understandable haha, a lot of it it’s film, some of it is Fuji Velvia but not as much as i would like it to be, some lomography iso 800, a couple of fuji superia 400, and i think even digital photos somewhere in that mix.

  • Nice one with the lights.

  • hazelrah

    so strange and beautiful!

  • Great! Love the colour palette especially :)

    • Jonah Ainslie

      Thanks Lucy!

  • I love this illustration :)

  • Blacky

    very creative! nice work!

  • Nick Rivers

    Interdisciplinary Artist.

    Things felt first in the body, before the mind, reinforce a philosophical belief that I am, therefore I think. My work deals with violence, destruction, love, and creation. I consider gestures between the specific towards the universal, then examine displacement and dislocation in the world and myself. We are all related. All things are in relation to one another. The core of my work is grounded in this belief. As an artist, I prefer to blur disciplinary lines of medium and focus my work on examining my Being and being in the world, alongside our Being and being in the world. Can the artist be the medium, the poet, the philosopher? I believe yes.

    Being concerned with evidence and the mark, I create gestures of things occurring, things which occurred, and things yet to occur. The work suspends itself in anticipation, challenges narrative, pushes towards self-realization. For me, everything is about the experience in the body, and the significance between ourselves and the rest of the world. Through sculpture, performance and video I address the body as a spiritual, ontological vessel.

  • happy new year :-)

    • To you too Jeff! :-)

    • Happy New Year to you too Jeff!

    • not a problem – genuine compliment!

  • I created an ART installation (I think).
    “This is the evolution of the photo booth. We have tapped into the selfie-lust habits of the modern day partygoer. But unlike the conventional photo booth experience, we went hyper dynamic, we went hyper visual, and for the first time in photo booth history, we introduced selflessness to the selfie. An experience for you, and an experience for all.”

“The Omega Project” by Rone

Rone continues his exploration of doomed and abandoned spaces with his latest immersive exhibition. “The Omega Project” sees the Melbourne-based artist setting up shop in a condemned suburban cottage in his hometown. Granted access and free rein before it’s torn down, Rone has filled the early 1900s weatherboard house with his signature ‘Jane Doe’ portraits. He also teamed up with interior stylist, Carly Spooner, to recreate the archetypal interiors, furthering the jarring mix of beauty and destruction particular to the experience of street art. As Rone explains:

“The concept of creating something beautiful within the context of decay and decline is central to the experience of any street artist. As is the idea that whatever you create might be gone the next day. For the artist, street art is all about embracing that transience and impermanence. And for the audience, it’s about seeing it (and taking photos of it) while you can”

Click here to check out the incredible 3D tour created by Phoria as well as more images and video below. While the exhibition starts July 22 and runs until the end of the month, the exact location will only be disclosed via email tomorrow morning to those who RSVP!
