how does your garden grow?

yesterday i drove down to Murray Bridge
to install my pieces for the exhibition

How Does Your Garden Grow?
glimpse of the catalogue
 i was accompanied by my "assistant"
who voraciously consumed quantities of milk while busily charming the socks off the gallery crew
glimpse of the cat
 but fortunately fell asleep long enough for me to paint my poem on the wall
[using an indigo-flavoured milk and lime mix]

 when not otherwise occupied, Yoda practiced yoga
here's what the rest of my work looks like

please join us there on Sunday March 30 at 2.30 to see the work of Dana Kinter, Petrus Spronk, Morgan Allender and Matthew Bradley[and mine in reality as opposed to batfone-snaps]

at the end of the day my assistant was exhausted

  
me too.


PS the bones were donated by Ginger, a jersey cow who died from natural causes [i think snakebite counts as natural in Australia] some years ago and who was buried respectfully but whose remains were exposed after a vicious north wind that blew the mound away.

  1. I think this is my favourite (via batphone) installation of yours experienced to date.... I'm loving the indigo/milk poetics... and shadow bones ....

    that the post comes complete with kitty is a bonus

    1. A catalogue has been published by the curator - you might be able to negotiate a copy by emailing the gallery

  14. "The force Luke, the force!". Sorry, couldn't resist! Lol! Little Yoda is a cutie and does resemble his/her namesake. Anyway, as usual I've sidetracked myself---your work is exquiste as usual---the poetry and textiles. You are one very talented woman.

  15. Kittens, textiles and poetry...what a gorgeous combination!

  16. Am quite taken with that cat-napping-sack + teeny tootsies flung in the air ... but still, not enough diversion to take away the deep meaning of poem, pini, and bones from the sky. phew. dang fine stuff.

  19. Wish I was close enough to come to the exhibition - looks wonderful. And kitty assistant is so gorgeous my heart melted. I wonder if I can sneek another kitten into the house without my husband noticing?
