allure

Couldn’t resist this one after finding some vintage fishing lures on ebay.

I can see clearly now !

My exhibition ends tomorrow and I am looking forward to bringing some of the pieces home.  Below are a couple of installation stills of the caryatids.

Apologies for not posting anything for the last few weeks – I have been busy but perhaps more importantly I have had the second cataract removed from my eyes.

Having been  all but monocular for the last few months has been a bit challenging but I am very fortunate that my eyesight has now been restored.  And yes I can see all the wrinkles.

We are all done and dusted –  monday morning saw us delivering the work to Noosa Regional Gallery.  If I thought my task of getting everything there safely was an ordeal – the gallery staff were exhibiting a well oiled machine.  In two days they de-installed two huge exhibitions and installed four new shows.  A huge thank-you to their professionalism and capability and curatorial prowess in making my small contribution a pleasure to view.

I am attempting to upload a video of the installation via vimeo  – the link below is to a vimeo file

Opening night and artist talk have all gone off without a hitch – now I clean the house!!!

last caryatids – finished

I have waxed and polished the drawers and glued the girls in place (I envisage at night they poke their heads out  and have a chin wag) now all I have to do is pack the whole lot up for delivery monday.  Here are some pics of the final two.

The above caryatid is suspended inside the drawer.  Part of her head and body is covered in scrim and then waxed.
