(this article relates to the Exhibition of original works by Philippa Stewart-Hall at this link.

Z – > Z ^2+ C…
Who would have thought that with the discovery of the computer came this simple equation, which threw conventional science off its perch…
No longer could a universe be described by a detailed set of laws.

The belief in the inevitable end of time in complete entropy and the second law of thermodynamics where everything tends to break down are now being questioned. The cosmic clock image of establishment science first began to crumble at the turn of 20th century when discoveries were bringing to light that causal laws didn’t ring true and that the behaviour of the atom and the individual electron could not be predicted.

South Korean Exhibition “Reflective Light” 2008

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

The exhibition, according to all reports, has been exceedingly well received…with the exhibition organizers expressing their views as to the excellent quality of the works now on display.


They were particularly enthusiastic about the Australian artists’ works and the exhibition is due to travel further into other galleries around South Korea.

It is wonderful that such an exchange can take place between the two countries.

Finding out what I wanted to do when I left school…

Friday, June 13th, 2008

Philippa Stewart-Hall - ModellingLike most young people I had great difficulty trying to decide what I wanted to do when I left school…

I dearly wished to study art but because I went to a selective school, North Sydney Girls in Sydney where the only avenue for creativity were the biological drawings which I did for my biology studies. However art or becoming an artist was considered only a hobby and my parents despaired when I demonstrated that I did not want to go to university…after all it was only a place for finding a husband…that’s if you couldn’t make up your mind what you wanted to do…women were still expected to be, if they worked, secretaries, or something subservient in an office….

I wanted to study architecture …but was informed while at school, don’t hold any great expectations you will just end up as a draughtsman in someone’s office… so having taken that on board I decided that school and uni were a non event. (more…)

In The Beginning – Philippa Stewart-Hall – Memoirs

Saturday, June 7th, 2008

wedding-photoWhere do I start……??
At the beginning I suppose…
My father, Stanley William Hall was a Skipper for Jardine Mathesons in Hong Kong.
My grandfather was chief engineer on his ship
One day my grandfather asked my father to deliver some books and a set of false teeth to my grandmother (the old lady) in Hong Kong.
My father agreed and as he was going down the gangplank the teeth slid off the top of the books and subsequently fell into the sea.
With determination and a lot of guts he delivered the books…thrusting them into the hands of Tommy Fraser’s 16-year-old daughter…Janet…referred to as Jean.
“I lost the teeth but here are the books.”
That was the beginning of a love affair, which lasted until my father died…in 1979 in Mapleton, Queensland Australia. (more…)
