We have had a wonderful day at the store in Clevedon - the weather was delightful and every one was in good spirits (the all Black win could have had a little to do with it - I don't watch much Rugby but do love to beat South Africa and the Ozzies).
We also have a few new bits and pieces a gorgeous oak set of draws - we have renewed them to there former glory and wooden turned candle stick which will be a regular feature.
Just come to hand are two original works previously not exhibited of my collection 'Imagined faces'. 'Imagined faces' is a collection I completed in 2008 for a solo show called First. The collection was inspired by the role of honor at the Auckland war memorial museum - which is all names and no faces - these are the faces that I imagined went with the names.
I love text on anything really - I have tried to do it myself as an artist but it never is quite right. Oh to be as clever with words as Artists John Renoylds (an Art New Zealand article) or the new Elliot Collins (link shows his work at the Tim Melville gallery).
So I am having a love of text day - here is the wonderful work of Colleen Pugh which I have framed up her 'lemon' A5 and 'Champange' A3 limited edition prints and Ruth Sumner's gorgeous cushions which I never stop loving - they are stuffed with duck and made from found blankets which is just sooo devine - both artists available at Workroom//the store Clevedon.
