Jeans for Genes Art Auction are held in Sydney every year.  World famous celebrities, sports stars, entertainers and other prominent people donate their personally signed jeans and prominent Australian artists are turning the jeans into artworks.

 

All of the jeans are auctioned during a special dinner function and the proceeds are used by the Children's Medical Research Institute for valuable medical research.

Simon Tedeschi 2006
Sold

This contemporary artwork by artist Ernie Gerzabek is a tribute to Simon Tedeschi, the talented young Australian concert pianist.  This extraordinary performer approaches his music with sensitivity, passion and superb technique.  Simon has performed not only in Australia but in prominent venues all over the world.

This artwork reminds us that when Simon interprets the composer’s score, he relies on his mastery of the concert piano - which is basically just a mechanical device.  He is at one with his instrument, with all its limitations and infinite possibilities – the piano is part of him and he is part of the piano – a marvellous relationship!

Harry Seidler 2006
Sold

A tribute to Harry Seidler, world renowned and award-winning Sydney Architect by artist Ernie Gerzabek.  As a fellow Architect he has admired Seidler’s work since his student days.

In his painting Gerzabek evokes the seemingly simple but functional style of the master, using Seidler’s preferred palette ranging from quartz white to granite greys.  The façade-like background is carefully divided by joints and recesses into well considered proportions.

Minimalist yet stylish, unpretentious yet sophisticated, it is an affirmation of quality and excellence and rejection of the merely trendy and derivative.

Let's Twist!  Get up and give it a go, do not think, just enjoy! 

The joyous tune of the Legend is washing over you in waves - a rich big voice and the pounding rhythm of a big heart filled with the spirit of generosity.

Have a sparkle in your eyes and let the music inspire you to the joy of giving.

Angry Anderson 2004
Sold

A tribute by the artist to Angry Anderson, the rock legend, Australian icon and outspoken supporter of worthy causes - an extraordinary human being.

Surviving an abused childhood and living a rebellious adolescence, he rose Phoenix-like to become an outstanding rock musician.  As lead singer of Rose Tattoo he achieved high acclaim for his hard-rocking, ground-breaking music and outrageous stage antics.

In recent years the wild boy has become less controversial, turning into an actor, media personality and ardent promoter of worthy causes. 

Despite Angry’s tough exterior, he is a big-hearted and compassionate supporter of countless charities and humanitarian organisations.  His ongoing support has benefited countless sick children, hospitals, the homeless, the hungry and the disadvantaged.
