October has been and gone, lots of projects have started, no projects have been finished!
This month myself and Betty got to see our designs laser cut into big bits of aluminium by HD Plasma and Laser and then fixed to some frames by the superstar Daniel at CSM as part of a public art job that we’re working on for a park in Baldivis. We have been going backwards and forwards to fabricators and trying to get everything done on time. To be honest it’s bee a great experience and we’ve both learned so much.
I’ve started making a new body of work for a solo show at Smart Casual in December. The work is all about the under representation of disabled people in popular culture and the taboos that still exist surrounding physical disabilities. The show will take the form of an installation and I plan on transforming the entire gallery. Watch this space for updates and the eventual install pics.
I also got some absolutely amazing news this month. Recently I applied for a City of Melbourne Arts Grant for a project with Testing Grounds next year and I found out that is was successful! This is a massive deal for me as it’s the first project in a major institution and one that will hopefully lead to bigger things in the future. I spent a few weeks pinching myself and still can’t believe it!
That’s it for now, I’ll update again in November,
