Oh and this is my 150th blog post! Wow! Glad it is all wizz, bang and cartwheels!
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 made these rats because I loved the look of the winged mice lying on their backs with their innards on display.
These guys are best when they are also on their backs with their tails hanging over the edge. They have wavy, mulit-coloured gizzards (hanging below their bellies in these photos) which wriggle when you turn the key.
