The Art of Social Media - experiment #2

This is getting exciting!

So you know that I have started a series of social media experiments since last week, right?

2017 is for me the year of "trial and error" and I use it as a pretext to play with what social medias have to offer. For the ones of you who are artists or work in the art sector, it comes to no surprises. Many galleries have gone on line, and artists use the different existing social platforms to promote their art. It has become second nature.

What I am interested in is, how far can one go with this?

So this week, I am trying something N.E.W. This week, I am running a draw in to win this artwork:

You have one week to put your name down and run the chance to win Syzygy. It measures 20cm x 20 cm, it is an ink painting made on Indian handmade paper from 100% recycled cotton rag. It comes unframed and I will post it for free anywhere in Australia and New Zealand.

Here is what you need to do:

Born in France, Sofie Dieu’s first encounter with art was through church. With a penchant for ritual and spirituality, the artist is best known for her fragile, sombre, and sometimes violent ink paintings and textile works.


Poetic and humanist, her practice draws on her journeys to China and Australia. She explores how identity and memory fluctuate according to their immediate environment. Landscapes, people, secrecy, healing, and the dichotomy between light and darkness are some of her recurring themes.


Multi-art prizes and award finalist, her work was included in the Sydney North Art Prize, Waterhouse Natural Science prize and the Contemporary Art Award amongst others. In 2016, she worked on the Camperdown Cemetery installation for Sydney Biennale. In 2017, her work will be shown during Vivid and Mental Health Month in Sydney.
