an uncomfortable dream, 2012, collage on paper, 32 x 42 cm
Now on show at anna pappas gallery, Melbourne. Inspired by the beautiful song 'Flowers' by Tinpan Orange (which might sound strange, but really it was!). You might remember me mentioning the song in a previous post, when these guys used some of my work to promote the single. I think they are currently filming the video for it, so keep your eyes peeled for the amazing shock of hair belonging to gorgeous frontwoman Emily Lubitz.
The majority of this collection was inspired by music, which you will probably see seeping through the titles as I post them. It was truly a joy to put together, so I hope you get enjoyment out of looking at them. On show until July 7 - anna pappas gallery!

So I swoon about, weeping about how I have never acquired any real skills, how I should have finished high school and studied something soul-destroying like accounting, and then at least I would be able to pay my rent and then buy d'affinois instead of coon cheese.
And then I spend a Monday morning making THIS:
I realised the ridiculousness of this life in an email I just sent: "I was just gathering materials to make some crazy cat toys for next week's show (I can't believe I can classify this as work - I just pasted some 'cauliflower eyebrows' onto a cat's face)"
That's right. This is actually my job now. The highlight of my morning was finding a miniature fake lemon at the opp shop (PERFECT for making said cat toys), and getting it for free, because the opp shop lady couldn't fathom why on earth I would want it.
By the way, this is about the size of a large grape. Hilarious.
So I suppose I could always study to be an accountant next year. Right now I'm too busy sticking food items to animal's faces.

Title piece from my current show, after the end. By PURE coincidence, this little girl looks scarily a lot like a combination me and my eldest sister Sarah - perhaps if there had been a fourth sister in the family, she would look like this little girl.
Starting to notice a bit of a pattern of little dark-haired girls in my work. My goodness, a psychologist could have a field day with that.
