Justin Khamara, Agneta Ekholm, Jan Nelson, Paul Blackmore, Kallena Kucers

Justin Khamara at Arc One Gallery.
Beautiful synthesis of photography and sculpture.

Agneta Ekholm at Flinders Lane Gallery.
These are my favourite paintings. Beautiful fluid colours caressing each other.
Very sinuous and sensitive lines floating in canvas wonderfully.
Still, there's a very strong sense of structure, I guess, underpinning the paintings.

Jan Nelson at Anna Schwartz Gallery.
Incredibly skilful sculptures using material called Forton. These works are inspired by Occupy Melbourne protest.

Paul Blackmore at Edmund Pearce Gallery.
This gallery in beautiful Nicholas Building specialises in photography.
'New Beirut' is an exploration of, and new look at this troubled city once called 'The Paris of Middle East'.
These strong images are the testament to what photography does at its best.

There's a very moving exhibition at RMIT Gallery.
These works are done by people suffering from mental illness, as part of their recovery through art therapy.
Most of the artists are anonymous, but works by Kallena Kucers (on the left) are really beautiful.
