Mary Lou Pavlovic's work has the sense of a deep lingering violence, often made presentable or palatable by slick, beautiful surfaces. Issues of taste and acceptability predominate.

In her forthcoming exhibition, I Want to Play with Boys, the artist is investigating varying degrees and types of violence, identity, and relationships between men and women.

In the photograph, Mary Lou Pavlovic prepares work for her exhibition, covering The Pogues classic,'And the band played Waltzing Matilda' written by men, sung by men, about men and extreme violence.

The song will feature in the exhibition at Niagara Galleries, Melbourne 1 July 2 August 2003. This audio and video work is a new medium she is exploring in her oeuvre.

After graduating from art school in Melbourne in 1972 Paul Boston travelled around the world for a number of years and developed an ongoing interest in Zen philosophy.

His abstract forms and patterns are built up from rich layers of colours. Ochres placed alongside blues and greys exude a strength and calmness born of Boston's meditation on the question of 'being'.

The works are described as combining the contemplative and the active; "they seem still and at the same time highly energised.
Viewers often observe that a work never stops moving, folding and unfolding."

His abstract paintings and drawings feature in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of New South Wales and in private overseas collections. Paul lives and works in Melbourne.
