Here was a fun little project which allowed me to use a new gadget, and I love those! Especially when they actually work haha. I wanted to use dowel joins only in this quite minimal piece as I like the finish better than caps or putty. I’m aiming to use this technique as much as possible in the future. The orange oil finish made the piece blend in with the floor boards which was unexpected but the customer is happy 😊
The latest piece I’ve been working on for over a year now I think. Well on and off, as the meaning and ideas kept changing. Moving from speakers/mouths to traffic signals then back to sound generators and waves pulsating quietly or dying down depending on how you want to see it. The title itself could be taken as personal or political but more often than not the two are locked together anyway. Anyway, it was meant for an art event last weekend but wasn’t completed in time, everything takes longer to dry in winter.
Join me next Friday folks, tickets $20 online or $25 at the door. Here’s a link with some additional info:
R/R is taking part in a Raw Artists event next month, so if you could purchase a ticket through the link below it would be greatly appreciated! 🙂
A bit of inspiration for the R/R project, an installation by Sydney based artist Nell. Really like these characters, they could be almost made out of anything, plant pots, cardboard boxes, papier-mache, cans etc. It simultaneously reminds me of Halloween, North American Indian totems and maybe African ritual figures? Or its a weird and wonderful voodoo choir frozen in mid song? Either way a lovely way to enliven a space.
