Previous Exhibitions

“A Secret”

A Secret is an exhibition of photographs that each artist has, up until now, intentionally kept hidden from public view. It presents the secret works of 24 artists, each revealing and uncovering one of their innermost secrets through a single image accompanied by a brief, explanatory statement. However, in a departure from the norm, all works will be presented anonymously. Nebuli’s Michael Haylen is one of the photographers revealing “A Secret”

“1Q84”

1Q84

1Q84 is inspired by Murakami’s novel of the same name in which the notion of an alternate reality is evoked.

In this exhibition, our 21st century world is a fake one, and it is in this fake world that we find our reality…

Pru’s images reveal the false values and wastefulness of rampant consumerism along with an expectation of perfection. Her images evoke a fantasy world that is simultaneously beautiful and disturbing. Meanwhile Rosemary’s work reminds us of the continuing obsession with the search for beautiful bodies and of the masking, disguising or concealing of reality to evoke another mysterious, whimsical “no-where” fantasy world.

“Pretty Big Pictures”

Exploring Form & Scale

A solo exhibition by Michael Haylen

“It’s more about the way the eye reads an everyday subject when it is blown-up and depicted large resulting in multiple interpretations
of what the viewer might think they see. It looks at flow states being made by the light – energy lines, darks and lights.
You get the sense that it’s not really the object that matters in the end – it’s the revelation of the object.”

“Unseen Sense “

A Head On Exhibition by Nebuli Arts

Do you recall those little eye picks of a moment, malleable and not clear, fuzzy yet growing in memory like an old friend? It is that unseen sense which everyone has but few use – sometimes surfacing at times of deep emotion in split second insights into the otherness of our world.

This is notion that Nebuli Arts photographers Christoph Mueller, Carolyn Pettigrew, Maureen Rogers, Alison Seccombe and Dawn Zandstra are exploring in their exhibition at the Incinerator Art Space, Willoughby.

The exhibition will be opened Sunday 31 May at 2pm by established creative art photographer Patricia Casey. Patricia is represented by NG gallery and is known for her beautiful creative photographic work. Nebuli Arts are very pleased to have Patricia as our guest.

Our exhibition is a part of the Head On Photo Festival 2015.

“Reality Check – Vienna Revisited”

A Solo Exhibition by Christoph Mueller of Nebuli Arts

Vienna, November 2012, winter was approaching, the air was fresh, people were in a hurry and it was getting dark earlier. This atmosphere stimulated the idea for this portfolio. The city changes its face and mood with the seasons and time of day. These images spoke to my subconscious in a very special way, taking me back to my early childhood in post-war Vienna.

This series reflects a deep and emotional picture of what Vienna, the city of my birth, still means to me. In black & white I transpose the reality of today into a representation of the past. My past.

Des Crawley highlights the balance between virtue and vice in his fantasy figures.

“Odyssey Landscapes”

Presented by George Fracchia and Ken Lipworth

11 Albion Street, Waverley

Mon -Fri 9:00am to 6:00pm
Saturday 9:00am to 2:00pm

As a part of the Head On Photo Festival and with images predominantly from Japan and Australia, George Fracchia and Ken Lipworth explore expressions of place and culture through the lens of urban and rural landscapes.

George and Ken are founding members of the Nebuli Arts artist group.

Nebuli Arts includes local emerging and established artists from Sydney. The aims of the group are to forge strong cultural links with the local community and the Arts Industry, and to produce a visual culture that aspires to attain a distinctive niche within Contemporary Photographic art.

The artists’ imagery highlights and contrasts similarities between two seemingly diverse landscapes and culture, unified by their eye for the odd and surreal.

George has selected mages that beautifully and elegantly portray the disciplined serentity of Japanese landscape. Ken’s bold and intense images fit well with their predominantly Australian theme.

The ‘Ying and Yang’ of contrasting styles produce imagery that will please and excite all who view it.
