Whew! It’s up!

I’ve just finished installing my first ever solo show, Stories clouds tell, at the Tweed Regional Gallery at Murwillumbah, New South Wales. And I’m biased, but it does look good.

The show combines sculptures and paintings, mostly executed in pigmented epoxy resin. Two Carrara marble sculptures are included, including Billow, which won an award in the Border Art Prize at the gallery late 2012. The largest work, a wall-mounted cloud section called One sunny day, is almost 3.5 metres long.

Even after working full-time for six months and having a small support team working past midnight last Sunday (thanks Nicki, Adam and Moira!), we were finishing some pieces off at the gallery. But then, is an artwork ever finished?

The show’s on until  March 30, 2014. If you’ve never been to the Tweed Gallery before, do yourself a favour. It’s worth visiting just to enjoy the building and its view (closed Mondays & Tuesdays).
