I am excited to announce a new little show I have put together opening at goodspace gallery this week:
Small, Special is a collection of new small works and also larger works comprised of small things! I have been working on some embroidered and felted wall hangings, soft sculpture and wearable objects – I have really gone all out with the sequins, beads and lots of embroidery this time. Lately I have been very taken with the idea of giving sparkle to small, humble objects and items of personal significance. There are also many nods to my cat and muse Porco, like this portrait:
It will be held in tandem with a ripper of a show by The Seven Seas. We’re driving up to Sydney and installing on Monday, you can view the shows on Monday and Tuesday afternoon and then come and join us for a drink and a look on Wednesday evening!
In other exhibition news, I have a piece in Into the Wild – an international group show at Auguste Clown Gallery. The show opens Friday the 6th of November and will be on view until the 20th of November. Such an honour to be showing alongside so many great artists! Here’s a peek at my piece for the show:
And in a final tidbit of news, The excellent Beck Jobson and Ramona Barry of Handmade Life have brought out a book with Thames & Hudson! The Craft Companion is a comprehensive compendium of all things felty, fluffy and fibrous. I am very excited to be featured in the felt chapter alongside some felty heroes of mine! You can preorder it from their website, it’s sure to be a great volume for all craft enthusiasts, I can’t wait to get my copy!
That’s it for now! I will sign off by sharing this nice discovery, recommended to me by my friend Rebecca. Ambient sounds of the Hufflepuff common room! It has been a very comforting and productive soundtrack when I run out of things to listen to, and Porco really blisses out on it. Fellow Hufflepuffs enjoy!
