“An ancient Egyptian temple at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art provided the setting for Chanel’s latest catwalk show, when the French fashion house debuted a collection featuring glittering tweeds, golden garments and bold jewels. The catwalk looped The Met’s Temple of Dendur – an Ancient Egyptian monument completed in 10BC – to create an appropriate setting for the debut of Chanel’s 2018/19 Métiers d'art collection earlier this week. With a taste for elaborate shows, creative director Karl Lagerfeld chose the decorative sandstone temple to provide the backdrop for the presentation, as well as inform the Egyptian-style aesthetic of the pieces. «Egyptian civilisation has always fascinated me: I get inspired by an idea, which I make a reality..”

Robert Juniper - Australian Landscapes

Robert Litchfield Juniper, AM (7 January 1929 – 20 December 2012) was an Australian artist, art teacher, illustrator, painter, printmaker and sculptor.
He is best known and highly respected for his poetic and visionary approach to landscape, particularly the outback and desert… His landscapes are a psychological and pictorial interpretation of space, blending his feelings about the landscape with what is visible to the eye. Although identifiable objects appear within his landscapes, the images are often metaphorical and the landscape represented stretches far further than the eye can see.

John Davis - Australian Contemporary Sculpture

John Davis (16 September 1936 – 17 October 1999) was an Australian sculptor and pioneer of Environmental art. An Australian exponent of Arte povera, he famously developed a new mode of Site-specific art at the Mildura Sculpture Triennial in the early 1970s. His most influential work, which was entitled Tree Piece, was made by encasing the trunks of several growing trees on the banks of the Murray River with, alternately, papier mache, mud, latex, coiled string, plastic cling wrap, and twigs bound together. The impermanent work was then allowed to weather and rot away. It was a breakthrough which lead many sculptors to reconsider the fate of outdoor works, and whether the fabrication of art might in some way adversely impact on the environment.Taking his cues from Aboriginal artifacts, Davis later became chiefly known for tender assembled works made of natural materials, including leaves and twigs, intended to highlight the fragile beauty of nature
