I’m now sharing the studio with two others, so a pretty radical cleanup has had to take place! I’ll share some photos now, because it’s probably going to be all downhill from here, unless my friends keep me on track.
As my friend Peri said, Entropy will get to this.
However, let me bask in the order and cleanliness for the time being,
‘A place for everything and everything in its place.’
Thank god for IKEA and Bunnings.
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.
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.
As our exhibition draws to a close, here are some images from the box of rust showing how it has developed over the course of the show.
This photo was taken on the 20th November.
And this one was taken on the 6th of December.
Some great photos and excellent commentary from Mo at its crow time.
And here some photos of the glass ceiling of the gallery which is the floor of the cafe upstairs.
And here is the progress of my box of rust. The wire is growing protrusions as the rusting process continues.
I’m really enjoying spending time here with Peri.
There is only a little wax in this show, lots of rust, a bit of woodcut print, and some stitching!
