There are lots of things are on the horizon for me in 2011.
LUNA PARK 2010 + 2011
Last year I completed the large scale mosaic/ceramic installation at Luna Park and they have just commissioned me to do a similar sized work for another section of the Luna Palace Building to commemorate the 99th Birthday in December.
So if you are interested to see the 2010 work visit Luna Park. Entry to the park is free. My work is titled “Dreaming with open Eyes”. It is situated on the Luna Palace Building, the one which houses the famous dodgem cars! (pictured above)
I am off to the USA very soon.
I will be holding two workshops in Austin, Texas at the Society of American Artists (SAMA) Annual Conference.
I am looking forward to working with the participants to create a “portrait” of sorts!
I am also going to be keynote speaker at the Conference.
I am looking forward to meeting many mosaic artists from America and around the world at this event.
After the SAMA Conference I am off to the Chicago Mosaic School to give a talk.
PATTERSON STATION MURAL 2011
I have received support from Arts Victoria and VicTrak to create a large scale mosaic mural on Patterson Station, the station which is near to my studio in Bentleigh.
Over the past few weeks I have been working with local young people to create “portraits” for our mural. They are looking very colourful and all so different to each other…the essence of our community.
Thankyou to VicTrak, Arts Victoria, Metro, Bostik and Southern Cross Tiles for your financial and “in kind” support. It is an enormous project and it is progressing well so far.
Thank you to Hayden Hill who has also been very generous!
Thank you to the following teachers, students + schools for their support in this project….more are coming on board each day!
Karen Levy + Helen Kuriata + Mc Kinnon Secondary College
Jill Stanbury + Wesley College, Elsternwick
Audrey Cardona + Westbourne Grammar School
Jill Anderson + Glen Eira Secondary College
John Irving + Beaconhills College
Karen Nielsen + Brighton Grammar School
Thank you to the Brisbane branch of MAANZ for making your large scale head for inclusion. They are making a large head using 20 sections of a face done by 20 different people! Can’t wait to see how it looks!
If you, your school or community group would like to make faces for this project please contact me. Everyone is welcome!
I have faces coming from all over… even some from the USA!
Join me in making Patterson Station a vibrant station to visit and commute to and from in the future!
