Really excited to be part of this dynamic concept, our two groups were made up of artists, architects, jewellers, designers, craft people, educators, gardeners, a retired radio announcer and an IT guru. We are prolific when it comes to documenting our own projects so making a powerpoint of 21 small and large public art projects was a breeze. We had precursors and elements to see and feel and an interested set of informed and enthusiastic visitors. October 10 and 11 saw multitudes of venues opened for public viewing – go to “BrisbaneOpenHouse” here.

“Stories in Small Spaces” is about filling your own 100mm H x 100mm W x 100mm D cube with an artwork/artworks. Initiated by Studio West End and showing at Impress Gallery, Kedron opened by Liana Heath on Friday June 5 2015. Download the invite – here. Thirty artists took up the challenge – Wim de Vos and Foremost Plastics assisted me with my piece. The smallest (eye) objects I have in my Urban_Archaeology collection just fell into my cube but needed an explanation and title. A larger .pdf of my piece is here. We hope to see you all at the opening so do save the date!
Other shots in this private garden and colonial collector’s home we visited . . . the sandstone sculptures are all done by the owner also
Warwick Oakman hosted a dinner to bring us together, they are high class antique & antiquity dealers from Freemantle, WA who have been restoring their very expansive early colonial building for the past twelve years. Mark Howard (left), Barbara and Les Lauder (right). The following day we met again and had the most detailed tour of their works and furnishings, which I have to admit was breathtakingly divine. For privacy’s sake I’ll hold back on details – rest assured we all got on like a house on fire. Their shops are here to view and do spend the time to dig deep into their web offerings.
We were very excited to be handed this commission. The partnering with the gallery and foundation executives, the numerous processes required to create the medal pushed everyone to excel and then the unique packaging designed by us and produced by the gallery has exceeded everyone’s expectations – nice!
First thing Sunday we hit the road for two days in and around Brunswick Heads, northern NSW – freaky really.

Barbara has created pierced ‘lace’ work in wax and developed many versions of this technique for over 20 years now. We are also working on larger sculptural elements for a series of suspended works following this ‘lace’ theme called “new nature” but we remain in awe of this particular caterpillar’s edible art, recently found on Tumblr.
