Dolls evoke childhood and innocence, but for Peter Baka, they embody carnality and dissonance.

Desire is the name of the artist’s new exhibition at Robin Gibson Gallery. It is a show of quirky, emotive intelligence.

Take for example, the ceramic figures nailed to the wall with their innards surgically removed to display movies and oddments. White Dress, a female form with a teacup hat and ballerina inserted in her abdomen is a telling portrayal of femininity, whilst her neighbour, I Like to Photograph Girls Naked, is the male counterpart, complete with phallic camera. Together the couple illustrate the ying and yang qualities of gender.

The statues are complemented by a series of green silhouettes made of copper and wood. Each piece is a story of love, urgency, jealousy and betrayal.

An exposition that is confronting yet comforting, Desire is an adventure in playful and provocative artistic discourse.

An outing for fresh talent

ERNEST Smith, a Wiradjuri man from Dubbo in NSW, spent 40 years in the workforce and never touched a paintbrush. “I became an artist by accident,’‘ he says. “I brought my daughter to Eora College in Sydney to sign her into a course, and the head teacher invited me to join the art class.’‘

Smith is one of the three artists featured in New Talent, an exhibition of works by recent graduates at Robin Gibson Gallery in Sydney’s Darlinghurst. Melinda Marshman, a Sydney based figurative painter and recent graduate of the National Art School, explores ideas of connection within the tradition of portraiture, including her work of oil-on-panel Joanne, pictured. Benjamin Reid, another NAS graduate, explores how photographic and imaged based media can be used to construct paintings, inspired by artists including Gerhard Richter, Andy Warhol, Sigmar Polke and Luc Tuymans. New Talent runs at Robin Gibson Gallery until February 19.
