After a brief hiatus I am back in the studio.
Am working towards a new show in early February and will post some images of how that is going soon. In the interum I have pieces from earlier this year in a couple of group shows. My feet shoes (For the love of shoes…) will be exhibited in the Brunswick Street Gallery’s Small Works Prize 2010. The show opens Friday 10th December, 6pm. The gallery is located upstairs at 322 Brunswick St, Fitzroy. See http://bsgart.com.au/ for more information.
Also the ‘itty bitty kitty machine’ and one of the ‘lucky cat’ statuettes are included in the Linden Gallery’s post card show early next year. This show opens 1pm-5pm Saturday 5 February 2011. The Linden gallery is situated at 26 Acland Street, St Kilda. See http://www.lindenarts.org/ for more information.
My first solo shows opens in 2 weeks at Red gallery, Fitzroy North.
Subtitled ‘mice running wild in the hall of the cats‘ the show includes the felines and rodents I have been making. Most of the pieces are kinetic is some way or other (mice that fly and run in wheels, rats with wobble guts and cats with waving fists).
There are also 2 other shows opening on the same night (Phil Roubin and Judith Cobb ). More information on these exhibitions can be seen on the Red Gallery website.
I am working towards my first solo show in September at Red Gallery, North Fitzroy.
It is looking like the works will focus on my cats and some imaginary mice who torment them. I’ve started with small lucky Maneki Neko:

Okay – back into english.

These cats are a little less lucky as their paws have to be moved manually. I have not fit them with a battery pack and a perpetual motion machine.
