Driving back from seeing Richard Crampton at Darkstar Digital. I managed to take a couple of shots……
Lucent is open each day until next Monday 10am till 4 pm. I’m enjoying gallery sitting here at the Incinerator. it’s very interesting learning how people interact with the show. Except for a couple of dark and rainy days last week, there’s been a steady stream of visitors. I’ve particularly enjoyed that children come in alone, then drag their parents downstairs to see the show later.
SPA excursion for 2015 register now.

MAKE A GREAT WEEKEND OF ART, FOOD and MUSIC.
You know I make Shifu thread from time to time. Here’s the way an expert does it. It is a beautiful and meditative process.
After a while buffeted by the sudden gusts of wind we have been experiencing here in Sydney, my rusted and stitched panels are demonstrating the process of entropy very nicely. I was worried about them making it through the length of the exhibition, but I now I think they’ll hang on till the end.
We installed my work at the Coal Loader this week. It’s in a rather rustic building which suits the work very well. The brick walls are stained with rust and old paint. The site is open on one side, so the panels move with the breeze – sometimes it looks as if they are breathing. There are lots of interesting works to see, many of them site specific.
Richard has set up a studio for me in his garage, and I have been working there today. It’s nice to have a change of scenery. Of course, I forgot to bring up a couple of vital pieces of equipment, but nevertheless I feel I have been making steady progress. As I explore the materials I have bought with me I can hear Richard in his studio, making music. There is a sense of companionship, even though we are working separately.
