    So glad you included that last shot giving a sense of scale to the moths … which are wondrous creatures

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Liz))) Kim’s moths are real magic! all the work in this show speaks with such deep heart and love of making, resonating with this line from “The Wave in the Mind” by Ursula K Le Guin (p178) “… We take what is useful and play with it – for the beauty of it.”

    You have been showing some wondrous art in your last posts. Those moths are jaw dropping beautiful.

      (((Dana))) October is such a wonderful month for art in Sydney, an annual pilgrimage, the best soul food & those moths… am happy the photos worked as they were all sold on the opening night, deservedly so!

    Hey Mo, just saw your comment over at Velma’s and wondered whether you had read Charles de Lint’s Someplace to be Flying? There is a very nice Blue Jay in there, plus lots of the crow family

  5. WOW these are all just magic Mo.
