Must apologize for the lack of posting of late. Been madly completing a series of works for my new show at Kazari (opening March 1st). My works will be shown alongside those of Benedict Ernst, the title of our show is “Rat Daughter, Chocolate Geisha; contemporary expressions of Japan by two Australian artists” The prints are currently being framed as I write this… phew! More on this in posts to come.
A close friend of mine, Martine Cotton, actually just opened her own exhibition in Japan on Saturday night. The works look quite amazing, as do the flickr photos of the opening. “Monochromic’ is the name of the show and the pieces are a selection of black and white photographs she has taken over the years.
And yesterday…. Mayuko (our Japanese housemate) left us. She’s probably surfing off some beach in Byron Bay right now while I sit here and miss her smiley face around the pad. That’s right, my little piece of Japan is surfing her way up the east coast and heading back to the big, stinky, smoke that is Chiba, Japan. BTW I will also miss her most excellent cooking. I tried, unsuccessfully I might add, to stowaway in her surfboard cover whilst she was occupied with finding the end of the packing tape. Best of luck little Mayuko chan … ganbarre!
Wishing that you all get messages of love and lust from your nearest, dearest and possibly unknownest, and promise to update with a little more regularity from now on.
