Have collected a handful of match boxes, so am having a bit of a play with them. Oh and still transfixed with this simple stop-frame animation technique. Click on the image to make it move.
New fabric designs at spoonflower.
I am in the process of uploading all of the colour permutations (hope to finish today). In the interim feel free to vote in this week’s warmable pillow competition.
(Can’t help it – I am a sucker for entering a competition!)
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.
These are photos of a recent piece in progress.

Finally, photos of the final work are here.
Thought I might have a go at a couple of stencils for the Melbourne stencil festival.
So I started with an old piece:
And cut some layers. (I used my current favourite beer packaging for each of the stencils – maybe not the best idea I have ever had.)
And because really the part I like most is cutting out, I decided to try 2 stencils:
And decided I needed a mega-sized met card top layer:
And, well the results are mixed. Decided not to enter them in the festival. Will have another go when I get some spare time. Did quite a bit of air-brushing at school and so feel determined to master this… later.
Exhibited in the Tag Tree Exhibition Group show, Hampshire, UK, 2009.
This exhibition aimed to amass 1000 tags from across the world and the call for entries was posted through flickr. The works were to be exhibited in two shows: an indoor, gallery show Hampshire, UK, and an outdoor exhibition to be held in a tree.
Had to have a few tree hanging prectices before sending them off.
For images of the indoor exhibiton see the photos in flickr. I do not think they have been stuck in a tree yet.
Exhibited at in a group show at Artholes, Melbourne, 2007.
Another similar mobile was included in the CERES charity art auction, 2007: http://www.ceres.org.au/
I have made a number of these fish mobiles. The first ones (including this one) are made out of tram tickets / metcards. The fish are suspended on salvaged street-sweeper blades found on the side of the street.
If you look along the edge of most major city streets you will find these long thin snapped of steel blades. Took us a long while to work out that they are from street-sweepers. Once you notice them it is hard to stop seeing them.
I have also made some elephant mobiles but I do not have any photos of these.
