This will be my 10th solo exhibition, it’s a nice round number on which to finish my Masters by Research study.
This exhibition marks the culmination of this study, the exegesis is finished (for those non-academics the exegesis is the writing, it’s a thesis that accompanies a creative work. However, although I’ve finished the writing and handed it in, it won’t be marked until the exhibition is up, so the two integrated aspects can be marked together.
Today was the first day of my residency at Edith Cowan University – Mt Lawley. I stitched the top of the 5 drawings on fabric to create a hanging system. Can you believe that took 5 hours? (I tend to overestimate my speed at doing things, there was a lot of measuring and hand sewing.) The fabric is transparent so I’m hoping that when they are hanging you will be able to see one image through the next. I say hoping because I’m not sure how transparent they will be. I may have to rethink the placement. This is the luxury of the artist in residency, giving me time for play and placement. I am still working on the etchings in my home studio, as I work with the installation aspects of the exhibition directly in the gallery. I am incredibly grateful to have this space towards the end of my Masters by Research study.
