Artwork in Material Girl


You may by now be sick of seeing my glass sculpture on my blog but this should be the last time. Just letting you know it has been accepted in this year’s Material Girl Exhibition to open at Moonah Arts Centre on Friday night. It’s a pity I can’t get to that but have to be in my studio  for a workshop on Saty a.m. At least, as my entry was accepted, I know my digdtal image was OK.

If you are in Hobart Friday do go to the opening… it is always a most creative selection of works in Material Girl and the staements relating to the theme… this year “speak to me”… are always varied and interesting. My work, titled    “I will Listen”  has the following artist’s statement addressing the theme

Speaking honestly and openly  is one side of the communication equation. It is completed with the addition of an attentive and sympathetic listener.

The mother and child in this artwork reflect this balance.

Painted simply in Sumi E style with no distractions the whole represents a natural harmony.

    Congratulations!
    I’ve just discovered your site by TasArtsLive.
    This piece is really beautifull. ( I imaginated first it was a lamp…)
    And touchs by the presence of the child and the parent (here, the mother), the warmless of the red color painted on the glass.
    The nice balance between those different shapes….Great combination of wood and glass!
