This afternoon, I had the most wonderful experience of hanging some of my work in a gallery space. To be more precise, I watched Brent confidently hang it and held my breath. You see, the experimental framing 'squeaked' all the way there in the car. Two sheets of glass sandwiched together, bound in a recycled wooden frame, tend to do that and it really was quite unnerving. (plus my first attempt to mount my work resulted in some cracked glass, so I was emotionally scarred!)
I am relieved and ecstatic!
Show opens on Friday 1st April and runs for the month at Limerence in Belgrave
I have butterflies everywhere because I am waiting for a re-stock of my favourite frames. The butterflies are flitting around the studio, sitting on window sills and paint pots. They have a life of their own!
They land on newly dyed silk and embellish discarded leaves. Some remain their own habitat, camouflaged and quiet. Other display a more gregarious nature and find themselves on other silks foreign to them.
And it makes me think..... to frame or not to frame, that is the question.
Yup! Thanks to my eagle-eyed mother in law (or conversely not so eagle-eyed), I have been made aware that the address of Limerence is difficult to read. Too teensy-weensy!
So....it's....Limerence, 2/1642 Burwood Hwy, Belgrave.
