My solo show, Memories, Dreams, Reflections, opens at Gaffa Gallery, 281Clarence Street, Sydney, on Friday the 9th March. The exhibition reflects on the contrast between the life we live and the life we dreamt to live. We may remember this contrast as a disappointment, an adventure, or a process; or all three at different times as memory seeks resolution between our dream and our reality. As a young person, I had many changes of residence, so I used the house as a metaphor for significant phases of my journey. This exhibition presents a few of the many houses which make up my memories. For each wall piece I have constructed a house, made of paper and wax, and lit from within.
I have also had one of my print/encaustic houses selected for Boundless, an exhibition of works which test the boundaries of printmaking. The exhibition will open at the Hastings Community Art centre, and then move to Wellington, New Zealand. There are many exciting works in the show. Watch this space for further news.
I am submitting work for an exhibition at Manly Gallery with Warringah Printmakers Studio. The title is ‘Leave Nothing but Prints’ and reflects the philosophy of Warringah Printmakers Studio: all the prints exhibited will be made using safer procedures.
