Back in the studio....

The last few weeks have been full since I returned to my studio on the Gold Coast. After unpacking and then packing away (I'll return to it later in the year) my work from residency at Youkobo Art Space; there were a few deadlines to meet for my upcoming joint exhibition with Susan Harris at Grafton Regional Gallery. First up, cutting of a new mandala artwork 'Curated ecology - City of Trees'; along with photographic documentation of artworks for the exhibition catalogue and a writer to be engaged for writing the catalogue essay.
With this said I'd like to give a big Thank You to Marisa Georgiou who wrote a fantastic essay on very short notice; and another big Thank You to photographer Carl Warner for turning around the high resolution images same day.

It felt like a good time to give my website a thorough update and add new works for the exhibition - check it out here.

I'm looking forward to the opening of 'On a walk...' with Susan Harris at Grafton Regional Gallery on Friday 12th May. If you are in the area, please feel welcome to join us. More details on the show shortly.
