Drawing with shadows

Over the last two Sundays I have been running a workshop at the Queensland Art Gallery for 4 - 12 year olds. The kids were invited to make drawings without pencils or paint; to draw with light and shadow, using white paper, scissors and glue. I have had a lot of fun; here are the results from last Sunday (including a few examples made by myself:

studio visit continued (the shed)



My new louvre windows, in anticipation of a summer breeze.



Off-cutts from bale, around about and pieces of alabaster awaiting their turn for transformation into ???









Work has begun on the first of four parts that make up 'openended' a piece that is to be installed into the third floor lounge area of the new Ipswich Courthouse late February 2009.
The first part has 348 pieces.

OUTSIDEIN



To everyone who came on Friday night to see the work, wish me well and enjoy the wine, thank you very much. Both Ian Friend and I were suprised to see so many people. To those who coundn't be there I hope you enjoy these images of the show. INSIDEOUT will run until the 25th of October and I will be in the gallery every Saturday until then.

up and running

INSIDEOUT is hung and so far receiving favourable attention.
I am very pleased to be showing alongside Ian Friend's beautiful works on paper, there are some interesting parallels between the two shows.
I am very much looking forward to the opening on Friday the 10th

The missing link

This work has been complete for a few weeks now but I wanted it to have a title before I posted it to this blog, I am very pleased with its complexity, two interwoven pieces (they move independently), mirror images of each other, forever inseperable.
