Today I applied a hard ground to two copper plates at home, a first. Spoilt by a beautifully set up work shop at uni it is a joy to discover how to set up an impromptu workshop, spread across kitchen and yard, including the clothes line. These two plates are for a book I’m working on currently.

Some hurried shots of the book I completed last week. Today I’m installing my show Delicate Territories at the Baillieu Library. It will be on till the end of May. I will hopefully get some nice shots of my works in their fancy professional display cases.

Here is a copper frog for no real reason.

Lucky I don’t believe in ghosts. Heavy walls, traces of history and fire, deadened footsteps on piles of shit and rotting plaster board confine the space. I highly recommend a visit to the ruins of Larundel Mental Asylum before it’s demolition and transformation into a housing estate.

Images may find their way into my work quicker than expected. Resuming the colour pencil book begun in Amsterdam, my most recent images connect with those done before through repetitious curves and leading horizontals, light and hue however are sharp deviations. A pair of cold and grey, soon a pair of hot and airy.

Sorry for the lack of recent updates, life is chaotic and attention directed everywhere but here apparently. Mid semester break has commenced and will allow me the time to wrap up some works that have been on hold, so expect more updates.
