I'm really rather taken with the Steve Carr works in the first show at the new Melbourne gallery, KALIMANRAWLINS.
I've always enjoyed his mixture of humour, high-finish and suspense - even the sculptural and photographic works have a sense of the cinematic.
And I'm also excited to see what KALIMANRAWLINS puts out there - they also represent NZ artists Simon Denny, Seraphine Pick, and Ronnie van Hout.
