Folly of Man – Wrong Way Go Back!

Online solo exhibition by Karen Chappelow

An observer of people, culture and behaviour, it intrigues me how are all so different. I enjoy long conversations and discussions on psychology, anthropology and science with a few glasses of wine or champagne thrown in.

What we hold dear, our moral code, things we allow to control us, things we won’t allow? How are we all so different and what makes that happen, what makes us tick? It’s a crazy question and one more learned people have asked for centuries.

So, I asked a question of my peers “What do you consider a folly of man”, the responses were vastly different as you would expect, I decided to try and paint these in a cohesive pictorial way to confuse you even more than my original question.

Precious Thing Vanishing Thing by Omar bin Musa

Current exhibition 4 August – 19 September

Precious Thing Vanishing Thing – Solo Exhibition by

Omar Musa

Precious Thing, Vanishing Thing is an exhibition of woodcuts and poetry by Omar Musa. The COVID-era has made many take inspiration from the resilience of nature, whether it be a succulent in a pot or a tree outside our window. Focusing on the ephemeral beauty of the natural world in Australia and Malaysia, Musa’s new work is influenced by the vastly different landscapes of Borneo and Queanbeyan/Canberra, all uniquely majestic but also tragic for their loss of endemic species through climate change and environmental destruction. Personal, poetic and humorous, these are stories carved into wood and printed with vibrancy.

The official opening is 2pm Saturday 7 August. All welcome.

Due to the current lockdown we have taken the opportunity to extend this exhibition until Sunday 19 September.

“When I enter this establishment, I am transported into another world; it’s a world of peace and tranquillity, a world awash with culture and ‘objets d’art’, infused with love and artisan skill, emanating from a culture that is renowned for its ancient wisdom, and… I feel at peace.” Suzanne Kiraly The RIOTACT Bucking the Trends #16 12 June 2017

“Our first visit to Humble House was in April 2006. We purchased a pair of bedside tables and have been hooked ever since. Nearly 10 years later and we now have a piece in nearly every room.

The pieces we have bring warmth and charm. They are beautiful, tactile, sturdy and functional with most in use every day. Unlike customary antiques they are timeless and complement our eclectic mix of belongings. Rather than dominating spaces the pieces meld into the environment and become a functional part of our home.”
