Old Man Crow came home last night from the pub with a T-shirt his mate Badger had printed of his face on the Mona Lisa, low brow art at it’s best!
Talking of art, visited Obsessed: Compelled to Make
photo by Jules Boag of Lorraine Connelley-Northey weaving with barbed wire
from the ADC website
at the Australian Design Centre to listen to Louise Weaver and Kath Inglis talk about their work and process (sadly Lorraine Connelley-Northey couldn’t be there). The show is a different way of looking at craft as art with key works from each artist displayed alongside videos with headphones which I found oddly disturbing in the gallery context as it distanced me from the work rather than engaging directly although I enjoyed watching each of the videos at home before I went into the show. The ground is shifting in the arts, the need for working with our hands and engaging with art is more important than ever…
On the way home I popped into Stanley Street Gallery
loved Shaun Hayes whimsical stoneware
& Artsite Gallery’s Sydney Printmaking 2018
a brilliant show, if you’re near town don’t miss it !
Reaching for the Stars is getting there, will be finished by March!

  1. Mo! The gloves are looking magnificent. And I am excited beyond reason that I will get to see this exhibition in Mackay! I’m going to Rockhampton next month for a workshop with Cas Holmes and then on to visit family in Mackay for a few days. Woohoo!

    That Mona Lisa image cracked me up!! The gloves are spectacular!!

    Badger as Mona Lisa brought a huge chuckle because synchronicity is a foot! On Feb. 10th, in Albuquerque, New Mexico,an exhibition of Leonardo Da Vinci opened and will run until July 2018. (We will be attending later in the year.) Here is a blurb from the local newspaper:

    “The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science is proud to host the extraordinary Da Vinci, The Genius exhibition created by Grande Exhibitions of Victoria, Australia in collaboration with the Museo Leonardo da Vinci, Rome, and the French scientific engineer Pascal Cotte. This is the most comprehensive traveling exhibition on Leonardo da Vinci ever assembled.”

    One of the interesting bits of info re the Mona Lisa ,according to the local newspaper is that, “part of the exhibition is focused solely on Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa.” Modern imaging techniques have made it possible to see earlier versions of the painting beneath the surface.”

    Reaching for the Stars …. are out of this world amazing!

  5. That Mona Lisa is a bit frightening, but Reaching for the Stars takes my breath away in a whole different way! Wow!!

    • Mo Crow says:

      hehe! it is more than a little disturbing, Badger looks a lot like a Basset hound and thanks for the good words for reaching for the stars, they will be finished in the next few days!
