Now Playing: ani difranco - revelling
It's continuing to be a busy, busy time for me!
I did another client portrait shoot this week: an author photo for Lisa Dempster's forthcoming book, Neon Pilgrim; and received my new book in time for the first Melbourne Blurb meet.
I went to see Salvador Dali: Liquid Desire at the NGV last week. I spent four hours absorbing this comprehensive retrospective of his work, bought a catalogue and am thankful that I bought an unlimited entry ticket to the exhibition as I'll definitely be going back to soak it all in more.
I also had the chance to drop in to see Three Fantasies at Obscura Gallery in St Kilda, which was beautiful. Some amazing work from Deborah Hally, Sayraphim Lothian and Tebani Slade.
My lovely friend Claudia Phares seems to be gathering a little collection of my "dead things". I went to her engagement party last night and was proud to see prints of Every Living Creature Dies Alone and Feathered Friend hanging side by side at the top of the stairs on arrival. We both mentioned last night that we must do a collaboration before I leave, so hopefully when she is back from her trips to WA & NT we will come up with something :D
Yesterday Feih and I drove down to Colac to deliver Truth Lies Beyond for exhibition in the Corangamarah Art Prize 2009, wandered around Colac Cemetery taking photos, then dropped into the Otway Estate Winery & Brewery to check out the space where my work will hang as a finalist for the second year in a row. I'm making plans to be able to attend the exhibition this year, and if you're interested and in Victoria, tickets are $20 and include fabulous food, a complimentary glass of wine, music, art and Wine Game. RSVPs are required to be received by Julie Rippon at Colac Area Health by 31 July, so if you need any further information or want to purchase tickets drop me a line and I can pass on more details :D
And as you can see from the invite at the start of this post, the night before that opening, I will have a piece in unsensored09 at the Collingwood Gallery! All details you need to make it to the opening if you live in Melbourne are included above. Hope to see you there!
