'Engaging … gripping … more than a biography' — Independent (SA) 'Fascinating story of an outsider … excellent' — The Witness (SA) 'Full of facts' — Sunday Times (SA) 'Gorelik has produced a book that gathers together a wealth of information, raising interesting points on many quite contentious issues' — De Arte 'Enthralling … highly recommended' — Historical Novel Society 'This book is highly recommended' — Dimitri Tretchikoff Vladimir Tretchikoff's Chinese Girl is one of the most famous images of all time. Known as the 'Green Lady', it has been reproduced countless times, appearing everywhere from mugs and T-shirts to pop videos and blockbuster films. Tretchikoff lived a life as colourful as his instantly recognizable paintings. Born to a deeply religious Siberian family, he fought poverty, tragedy, captivity and near death to become one of the most celebrated artists of his time. Loathed by the critics yet loved by the public, he defied misfortune and a dismissive art establishment to enjoy phenomenal success in Britain, South Africa, Canada and the United States. Coinciding with the centenary of his birth, Incredible Tretchikoff tells the enthralling story of this flamboyant artist from his humble beginnings to the spectacular highs and lows of his later career. We hear thrilling accounts of his early years as a Russian orphan in Manchuria and his efforts to make his way as a young man in a strange land. In Singapore in the 1930s, he was accepted into the social elite and his art became talk of the town. Meanwhile, he secretly worked for the British Ministry of Information producing anti-Axis propaganda. But his high living was brought to an abrupt end by the war. He was nearly killed when the Japanese sank the boat on which he was trying to escape; taken prisoner, he was forced to use his artistic skills for the enemy. Accused by his captors of being a spy, he somehow survived, and was eventually reunited with his wife and daughter in Cape Town after the war. Within years, through sheer determination and despite the hostility of the local art community, Tretchikoff had become South Africa's best-selling artist and his fame had spread across the globe. With the pace and suspense of a novel, Incredible Tretchikoff matches the drama of its subject's extraordinary life. It reveals the adventures that lie behind his most famous pictures, while presenting recently uncovered information and previously unseen photographs. This fascinating and gripping book is a fitting record of one of the most popular and controversial painters of the twentieth century.
This work encapsulates the photographic career to date of Mark Kimber, whose track record as an artist has its origins in the early 1980s when, only one year after graduating from art school, six of his prints were collected by the Art Gallery of South Australia. Since that time his photographs have been collected internationally.

Julie Blyfield is one of Australia's leading contemporary jewellers. Her work has consistently kept pace with investigations of location, identity and cross-cultural understanding, and involves an innovative engagement with traditional jewellery and metalwork techniques sourced from all over the world.
Angela Valamanesh is one of Australia's most intriguing ceramic artists. Her art is aesthetically minimal and cunningly simple, allowing us to interpret universal and ever-perplexing human, animal and organic forms. Valamanesh re-immerses us in the primeval rawness of form and function and, in doing so, the artist succeeds in visualising what many of her contemporaries have avoided - the symbiosis between art and science.
