So here’s my piece for the First and Last show currently on at Counihan Gallery.
It was hectic, it was fun and it was interesting. I kind of want to forget about the whole thing and move on but I need to give an artist talk about them on the 16th of June.
Turns out I don’t have any decent photos showing the scale of the thing but it ended up being 80 different creatures big.
The opening night was pretty great. Thanks to everyone that showed up for all your support. I was very overwhelmed and humbled by all your kind words. I had no idea what a fancy thing the opening would be until it was happening. The mayor of Moreland gave a speech mispronouncing my first name yet somehow getting my surname right and today I learned there’s a rumour that he ended up going out drinking with us.
So that’s it! You haven’t seen the last of those guys yet though. I’ll tool around with them for my solo show at BrunswickArts in August plus I’d like to see them coloured and made into stickers and have a small zine with them along with some writing.
