GIRL CAN DRAW

Girl Can Draw is a visually stunning collection of illustrated bridal and fashion art by Marta Madison, marrying imagination with haute couture.

Marta has amassed a large portfolio of illustrations in her 30 year career as a fashion illustrator. This first volume traces her work from the earliest newspaper illustrations in the 80s to today's editorial and digital fashion art, with occasional ramblings and observations about the triumphs and challenges of the artistic life.

Marta's pencil sketches, lush watercolours and pastel drawings capture the essence of a woman. Her sharp eye for style and aesthetics, much loved by her clients, make this a must-read, not only for those searching for inspiration, but for anyone who loves fashion art.

Marta also pays a touching tribute here to her mother Lenny (a talented fashion illustrator in her own right) whose own art dreams went unrealised in the restrictive 50s. Delighted by Marta's emerging art talent as a child, Lenny actively encouraged her to continue the family legacy.

CONTEMPORARY ART: PROFILE ON GARY DEIRMENDJIAN

Australian artist Gary Deirmendjian presents this visually rich volume covering around 20 years of his work. The book also contains writings from twenty artists and supporters, offering their thoughts on his work and practice. This, in addition to a contextualising introduction by the artist himself.

BURIED NOT DEAD: ESSAYS FROM SYDNEY'S HIDDEN ART WORLD

Artist and novelist Fiona McGregor's new book, Buried Not Dead, is a collection of essays on art, literature and performance, sexuality, activism and the life of the city of Sydney. In a community that celebrated subversion, dissent and uninhibited partygoing, in her writing she observes the shift from that moment to new forms of cultural repression.
