While Mel’s been away, I’ve continued working on the piece to add to my ongoing ‘deadwood’ series, for exhibition in re:re(a)d re:visited, a group show. Other artists in the show are Nicolette Scobier, Carlie Henderson, Sian Edwards, Brooke Johnston, Jane Reynolds, Linda Blair and Christina Adamson. The exhibition opens Thursday night 31st July and runs until August 12th.

I also started another body of work yesterday. Have been discussing the raised and formed objects in the gallery space with people that wander through….and just had to start making objects straight way, based on vessels… …….with a working title of ‘half empty (I want to fill you up)’…..it continues an underlying personal narrative that exists in much of my exhibition work….I imagine the end result to be a room full of rows and rows of vessels (carrying on the mild obsession I have with the comfort of the repetitive), mainly made from beeswax (continuing with my love of beeswax and all things honey) and any other materials I find in my day to day existance.
