Admission free DETAILS: www.windowsonpain.org FIONA BRADY HAVE you ever visited a place and sensed that something bad has happened there in the past? It's a phenomenon that has fascinated Haberfield artist Euan Macleod for a long time. ''I think the clearest I've ever felt it was Port Arthur,'' he said. ''I went there before that horrible shooting and I found it one of the creepiest places I've ever been.'' This concept of ''places in pain'' has inspired his contribution to the Windows on Pain campaign -- the fundraising and awareness campaign of the Pain Management Research Institute. When asked to come up with an artwork on the theme of pain, Macleod painted a triptych -- Smoking Landscape -- he saw on a family holiday to Phuket in Thailand, where the 2004 tsunami hit. ''I wanted to try and get the sense of a place out of its natural balance,'' he said. He was careful not be too specific in the work, leaving the viewer to make up their own mind about whether it is simply a volcanic landscape or something eerier. ''You do get that sense in the painting, it could be devastation caused by natural events or unnatural events . . . it's not that clear.'' There were similar themes behind his 2009 Gallipoli-prize winning work, Smoke/Pink Landscape/Shovel, which depicted muddy trenches. The New Zealand-born artist has won many accolades, including the Archibald in 1999 and the Sulman Prize in 2001. The Windows on Pain campaign exhibition will go on tour before being auctioned to raise money for the Pain Management Research Institute. 246 BURWOOD RD BURWOOD Ph: 9745 3188 COMPLIMENTARY DESSERT with every Teppanyaki booking Mon to Thurs Fully licenced & BYO wine only Book your parties and functions (up to 100 ppl) Open 7 Days Lunch - 11:30am - 3pm Tues - Sun Dinner - 5:30pm - 10:30pm 7 Days BOOK FOR MOTHER'S DAY AND RECEIVE A FREE BOTTLE OF WINE WITH BOOKING FOR 6 OR MORE PEOPLE 2215392K wk44 FUJI TEPPANYAKI WEDDING PACKAGES AVAILABLE LUNCH: Tues - Sun DINNER: Tues - Sat PRINCE EDWARD PARK, PHILLIPS STREET, CABARITA occasion perfection Superbly located, Angelo's on the Bay boasts a selection of innovative and contemporary seafood cuisine prepared by Chef Suna McKay.
