Juried exhibition: Twenty-one +

I was lucky enough to be included in the judges’ selection of works for Twenty-one Plus, the juried exhibition organised by WAFTA for its 21st anniversary.  See http://wafta.com.au/event/21-exhibition-2/

I have to deliver my work, Family Tree, to the gallery tomorrow morning so I’m finalising its mounting  tonight. Tricky.  It’s a 3D work, designed to rotate from a central point and to show five “branches” of a family.  The WAFTA website has my explanation so I won’t repeat it here.  Suffice to say, after a consultation with the very friendly staff at http://www.tackleworld.com.au/wa/morley.html, I have been threading several weights of fishing line and a swivel onto my work.  The wonderfully sympathetic guy at Tackleworld also gave me some clear plastic tubing to thread the fishing line through as he was worried that my perspex framework might have had rough edges that would chew through the fishing line.  How service oriented is that?

Anyway, here it is in my hallway.  Hope it looks as good in the gallery!

    How wonderful to get someone from a shop totally unrelated to what we do go the extra mile and take an interest in helping you. I love it when that happens. Really hoping I am able to get up to see this exhibition and see this work in the flesh – if looks fabulous here
