The Grey show was very successful for Jersey redux, and has moved me into interesting new ways of working. Being able to “contract out” some of the making – providing the hand-drawn figures to Work-i-shop in K Rd who created the files and then laser-cut the perspex – was great. It meant I could trial and redraw quickly, making the most of the short time I had after returning from our (mostly) Celtic vacation during which I was totally obsessed by wildflowers and skies!
As usual I made work that was really hard to photograph (clear perspex) but Sait Akkerman (Arts Diary) managed this clever side-on image which caught the light as well as the shadow.
Now onto LOOK – I am preparing work to instal in the window of eighthirty cafe/roastery, 551 Karangahape Rd (near the Ponsonby end of K Rd), ready for the opening on Thursday 5th and for the official “week” of Artweek, October 7 – 15 .
