Well, we DID it.... with a grant from the City of Surrey. the day of Drawing collective rented a U-Haul, retro-fitted it to accomodate a gallery and took to the road. The whole show responded to a theme of Draw Tomorrow. we got great feedback and enthusiasm and exhausted ourselves in the process by offering drawing workshops wherever we went,

BUT

A casual idea thrown around at a gathering - actually got realised - V. satisfying.

I showed my small wire drawings of people with tail prosthetics since I still can't let go of the Beauty and the Freak thing that goes back to the landmine series. Will post them on my site soon......

Small news item a week ago that didn't garner a whole lot of attention but - Female ski-jumping has been approved by the IOC for the Sochi Games (next winter olympics) - hence I have taken the ski jumpers with nipple tassles -( they are now being taken seriously) off my home page - relegated to the OTHERS gallery!!!!!

At the beginning of 2009 I discovered a street artist in London who goes by the name of Slinkachu. The experience was one of miniature magnitude, like an upscale downsizing and I committed to a period of:
1. Making art for public spaces that would act as small surprises for people passing through those spaces.
2. Making art that counteracts our society’s mania for “THE BIG” as a way of getting attention, selling product or making profit
3. Celebrating “THE SMALL” as a conduit for reflecting experience and meaning.
4. Making art outdoors in the summer and “in studio” in the winter; seasonal shifts of art practice that acknowledge environment
These “interventions” are the result: 5 locations were selected for small foil, paper and resin figures
The first involved 9 “flying figures’ below a caged railway overpass at crescent beach. Over a period of a week they succumbed to the vagaries of weather, human intervention and poor knot tying.
The second and third involved figures at different points in a ravine . The couple survived for a few months and then got destroyed. The tree figure lost its home when the tree blew down in a storm.
The 4th pair of figures wore logos on their chests advertising international Buy Nothing Day and were installed on black posts at an intersection in a new retail development.They lasted less than 24 hours.
The 5th location was a fence in a newly established park where two figures look across mud bay to the gulf islands.
