I know I haven’t been posting much: this is the reason. I’ve been hard at work preparing for this show.
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.
I am having a solo show at the Incinerator in six months time, so I’m trying to get a lot of work done so that I have as many options as possible. I’m working to the theme ‘Lucent’, so all the pieces will have something to do with light, (or its absence, perhaps..)
This is waxed paper, folded, with stitching in silver thread. I bought the thread at a stoop sale in Brooklyn, so I’m really enjoying remembering my short time there, while I stitch. My needle makes lovely circular marks in the paper that let the light through.
Peri and I sharing a glass of bubbles on the closing day of the show. It’s been great – plenty of visitors, some insightful comments, some wonderful conversations and some sales. Peri and I are already discussing the next one! (But it won’t be for some time yet.)
Thanks to everyone who made it such a success.
