Sydney friends of BLACK, tonight is the opening of Craig Ruddy's Open Studio/POP Up Gallery on Oxford Street in Paddington - if you have the time and inclination to see/buy a piece of this wonderful work, you'll not only be amazed by the proliferation of wonderful new pieces he has created, but the team that works with him led by life-partner Roberto Meza, are also VERY capable of making sure you have a great evening with it!
We are always happy to see the talent we showcase in the pages of BLACK bring forth their next great offering, and you won't be dissappointed in your choice to take a look at this latest work either.
Craig's artistic endeavours are an absolute reflection of the personality that abounds within and around him - multi layered, with a generousity of life and spirit immediately obvious to those who newly meet him, and known and loved by those of us who have lived with it's (and his) splendour for years.
Included here is a revisit of the pages from BLACK 27, in which we visited his home studio - the extension to this "space" he has now created here. It says much about the lack of pretension and ease in environmental comfort he brings to his work, and shows more truly the person he is - you will feel welcomed and comfortable, and that joy can be held closer and always by taking a piece of "him" home with you!
