Installation that explores the ambiguous 3D sketch, the result of a decade long exploration into the dialogue between physical and digital creative spaces undertaken through the poetic and playful lens of millinery.

Steve Kilbey

Portraits, Gods, Goddesses by legendary solo artist and frontman for The Church.

About Barton Price

Composer and Painter, ARIA Hall of Fame.

Recent compositions performed by the Phoenix Quartet (Ukraine) and The New Zealand String Quartet. Barton always paints as part of his composition process, but for The Art Music Cafe, the painting has become the notation medium. The painting and the composition have become one work.
