Acrylic & pastels on canvas. A drawing really. Recycled the canvas from an old sample artwork for the big PNG commission.
1830 x 901mm. Loved working at this scale after all the teeny pieces I've been making for so long. With them my thinking has been that its an already crowded world and theres a helluva lot of art out there, it doesn't need more taking up valuable space. My house is well crammed with artworks, but I obviously still keep making because its second nature to me and its just what I do, but this way I'll try to not annoy anyone and make very small things. Then put them in a cupboard. Not asking anyone for anything, recycling old work & staying out of the way, being scrooge-like in my use of materials, and make good use of one of those lamps with the magnifier lens on a bendy stalk because EVERYTHING IS SO fkn SMALL .
Finished pieces go into a cupboard but my cupboards are getting full. So I feel both relieved and terrified that I've been offered a show with The Lost Ones Gallery in Ballarat, this October. Solo exhibition. Amazed at this incredible opportunity. Can make lots of BIG pieces! Lots!
I think I smiled every time I had to extend my arm to get across the canvas, so much did I enjoy this scale. I plan on making a stunning show.
