The countdown is on only 2 weeks until the Pah homestead show Opens…the last few weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind but I have finally consolidated my latest work. I was lucky enough to have a group crit session ( the first in years ) with Sam Kelly and a few other maker/creatives at a recent artist meet up in New Plymouth, It really helped me unpack my thinking and identify subtle connections I had not yet made … I spent the next few days asking myself “what is this work not about”?
Its just as Judy said in a recent email “it’s important to have conversations and crystalize your thinking”.
regular outside perspective and critique is something that has been lacking in my practice, so feel I have achieved a milestone in my professional development.
Judy is away in San Francisco in an artists residency so I have been keeping in touch over Instagram and working my way through some of Judy’s favorite books..fantastic reading stretching the brain cells, lots of self-reflection and aha moments to be had!
with regular skype sessions and many many emails, The Handshake 4 crew are also on the go! decisions are being made and prep for the exhibit is well underway with Peter in the role of curator…such a great team to be a part of looking forward to the 30th of October opening night! 🙂 check out our facebook page and look out for our new HANDSHAKE4 Instagram account and please like and follow us.
