Warringa Park School

In November i was once again invited  back to  Warringa park special school. This is my 3rd project with them. I was  very excited to see the development in their skills …. In using the tape and the cane and understanding both what we are making and how to make it….

This time it was a tram ….

The first day 4 classes helped me to build the frame, and the following week another 2 helped my cover it in the paper and then add the drawings. The fabulous art teachers Andrea and Ruth, had worked with their classes to create a number of different styles of drawings and collages to glues on the tram for decoration….

They looked great and I’m sure they were the highlight of the end of year arts show.

INTO THE LIGT – Echoes of Home

In an attempt to catch up with things I did last year before this year kicks off ….

here is the video I finally finished for INTO THE LIGHT – Echoes of Home

INTO THE LIGHT is a community process and event developed using art to explore ongoing recovery issues in the region, break down isolation and build connections. It began in 2011 in response to community needs following the 2009 Black Saturday Bush fires. Locals asked that the project be repeated, to continue a collective reflection, realising that community recovery is an ongoing and evolving process that takes time to unfold.

The Dirty Dozen Christmas Window

There are better photos coming…and more words

but for now a quick glimpse of my finale piece for 2015….installed in Campbell Arcade (or the Degraves underpass as I call it)

I was one of 12 selected by the City of Melbourne to create this installation for “Urban Forest” showing until the end of January

The Village….. part 2

So quickly it happens….

The Village has gone up, and been taken done and now rests in a box in the studio.
Except the shipping rope which is still sitting in the back of the car waiting for that extra person to be available to help us lift it out!

Thanks to all of those who made it to have a look.

I received a lot of positive feedback and have the vision for the next one….

Here are some photos from the opening….

The Village is up and open…..

On Monday I installed The Village at Trocadero Gallery In Footscray.

Paul Blackman, an old friend and fabulous artist with a great eye for installation helped.

getting the shipping rope up the stairs was a challenge but totally worth it.

This exhibition will be open from September 2nd – 19th
Wednesday – Saturday 12 – 5pm
The opening is on Saturday 5th 4 – 6 pm

These are just a few of the photos I snapped after the installation…. there will be more!
