All the small things

Duck ‘n Weave are excited to announce our next exhibition – All the small things – for the Adelaide Fringe Festival this year. We’ve all had quite a reflective year, and want to share with you some of our revelations!

As a collective, we are going strong, in spite of one member spending a lot of time away from Adelaide! We are getting better at remotely supporting and inspiring one another, and find we are able to bring a freshness to our work as a result.

Once this show opens, I’ll share some of the artwork on display…

Spot the birdie?

From time to time, school holidays are blessed with a visit from some of the interstate cousins… My studio, aka ‘the spare room’, was vacated so there were enough beds to go around, so I moved my set-up to the lounge. Much to Pikachu the cockatiel’s joy – he had ALL of the brushes to chew, and both the play area on his cage and his portable ‘landing pad’ near by. All of the foods, all of the scritches! Happy birdie.

What you see in progress here are the beginning of a series of small acrylic paintings for my upcoming Fringe exhibition with DuCK N weave Collective. I think there will be six or eight of these by the time I finish, to go with three larger pieces.

Since hanging our exhibition for the SALA Festival, I have done very little art. Instead, my home has been the canvas as we have begun to create a Mexican-inspired space. Colour is key!! A recent visitor commented that he had been painting his bathroom, too, but nothing nearly as bold as we had done! (Still not sure if that was a compliment or not…!!) I love waking up to my new turquoise bedroom in particular, but our sunny golden lounge and dining area feels warm, like a big cuddle.
I was excited to sell some of my work at the SALA show, and have been keen to make some time to get back into it. I have finally settled into a new piece, and it’s kind of making its own way! Each time I work on it, it is developing into something new. I think I love what it is becoming…

Detail – Ghost House – work in progress

In other news, we have just registered for our next exhibition which will be part of the Adelaide Fringe Festival early next year! We will be showing as DuCK N weave artists collective – made up of the four of us who began our unofficially named ‘art club’ back in January. I’m very excited to continue my art journey with these three inspiring women!
