The dawn of the Diango
See here self portrait (or woman in the black cap)more as how I like to see myself than what I really look like (I think). Wide eyed, big smile and splattered in paint. Approx 1m x 65cm. House paint on beaten up tin.
Spending lots of time in the studio of late. Drawing, painting and sculpting up a storm. Very 'studio bound'. The next project will be a 7'x5' diango ( gigantic dumpling) for the Adelaide Fringe Festival. I wont be going this one alone thank goodness. Dianne Davie will be working with me. Hence the Di in Diango. It will be installed across the road from the general store in Palmer, SA as part of their Sculpture Park theme encompassing the entire town. It will be there by the 5th of March or maybe sooner if we get cracking on it. Right now its a wooden base compliments of the technical whiz luking behind the scenes. Same one who installs the Murals and gets paid in beer. (Hey, Australia's first currency was rum!) Stay tuned!
