Whilst I'm whinging about tonsillitis - I had another group show opening tonight at Kaleidoscope Gallery in Paddington. I had originally ordered some ornate black baroque style frames, but the mat board was all wrong when it arrived. So I decided to whip up some new work at a different size and recut the matboard myself. Yeah, bad idea...So in a mad scramble I managed to get an extension till the next morning (this morning) to courier the artwork to the gallery. I still had a few other empty frames from some months ago laying around, so I decided to create something overnight.
I certainly don't recommend doing that very often. I sat outside at 8:30am waiting for the courier, having just finished the works, trying not to fall asleep. I've spent the rest of the day sleeping and resting up since my night owl antics set me back recovery-wise with my tonsillitis. But, funny enough, these are my favorite pieces lately. I think I might do two more just for myself, to decorate my bare walls.
The show is open for two weeks at Kaleidoscope Gallery, 84 William St, Paddington.
