I have been neglecting to document my progress on various projects. My tapestry of Larundel Mental Asylum continues at slow speed. I have been printing laser engraved linos for a book about a road, there will be more to see once the covers are completed and everything bound. Working on a small etching while assisting a friend print photogravures has inspired me to attempt a switch to her medium, plans for another book utilising this are in the works. This work will take a fair amount of influence from works in the exhibition Endless Present: Robert Rooney and Conceptual Art which is on now at the NGV and I highly recommend a visit.

My exhibition Zoetrope at Mailbox 141 has come to an end while my work Mordialloc has just arrived in Tasmania in preparation for exhibition.

A new year and a new tapestry project of a larger scale. Architectural features begin to emerge with the stitching and accumulation of shadows.
