Inching forward

1. Upcoming group exhibition: F Generation:Feminism, Art, Progressions. Curated by Caroline Phillips, Veronica Caven Aldous and Dr. Juliette Peers. George Paton Gallery, University of Melbourne, 7-16 October 2015.

2. I have secured a wonderful short term fix to my studio dilemma. Working on a new object, for the next 5 weeks, will be nourishing.

No studio

Two thoughtful friends helped me move my machinery out of my studio last weekend (16/8/2015) down two flights of archaic early 20th century stairs. Not suprisingly, their stoic effort is now etched in my consciousness. 

I am now looking for a ground floor studio.
Ideal features:
- Long walls with minimal architectural interruptions for large scale drawings
- Ideally, and in a perfect world, a space that has tall walls. Below are a selection of 6m long drawings, Die Papageien (2014) which I hope explains why tall walls would help.

My studio regularly gets reconfigured depending on what projects I am pushing through. As I am sometimes a dust maker- I have invested in a particle filter (square box shaped machine at right, centre) and dust extraction (background at left). The next projects I want to start on involve making objects and large scale drawings.
