unnatural, naturally

Unnatural, Naturally my exhibition with Lauren Simeoni opens this Thursday October 1 at metalab. I am getting pretty excited I have to say. Today my Dad and I installed the backdrop for some of the work - a multi-layered diorama-style hedge made of plywood... it looks fantastic! A big thank you to Lauren's cousin Adam for making our beautiful hedge for us and to Dad for helping out with the set up today.

Here's a peek at the hedge being installed:

another sneak preview

I have been a little quiet on the blogging front recently for all manner of reasons that life throws our way. But I am re-surfacing to show you another new work that will be included in the exhibition Unnatural, Naturally that Lauren Simeoni and I are having at metalab. The exhibition opens on October 1...
Although the majority of the work in the exhibition uses 'new' materials, I have managed to sneak a few pink thread pieces as well!  Below is one of the other works from the exhibition...
Faded, Dyed Mother of Pearl, Jade, Coral, Artificial Plant Foliage, Marine Ply, 925 Silver, Acrylic Paint
