a cloud elephant chases across the expansive blue sky

Friday, December 13, 2013

sitting in the studio. no music no wifi. sinking deep into the silence. it's both tender and fierce.

the great thing that comes from embracing uncertainty... it reminds you that the past is really done and dusted

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

learning to feel supported within a universe of uncertainty.

Monday, November 18, 2013

when the days feels like you are jumping up and down on a trampoline doing somersaults in the air.

the lure of the avant garde for an artist. is it just a hook that starts a press release?

Monday, November 4, 2013

walking along a train platform , with a train arriving and departing on both sides.  walking forward but my perception doesn't seem so sure.

i step in an untried direction- invigorating!

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

i feel like my mind is blowing a gale! sudden change of pace, packing up after three week art residency.

Sunday, October 20, 2013

i gently lower myself into the depth of silence and collect the information from below.
day eighteen of artist residency. eating walnuts from the tree. practising new fresco techniques.

Wednesday, October 2, 2013

i feel refreshed after a session of painting, it's like emptying out the garbage

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

i paint the garbage collectors. digging into daily life i find dignity and challenge what is valuable.

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

tethered to the streets of Berlin, i am less careless with my freedom.

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

i let wonder take me outside of the lines

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

i'm drawn to the garbage collectors on our streets. they work in full view but are somehow invisible. i wonder if an artist does a similar job. re-evaluates what's of worth for us.

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

stray  pieces of paper twirl down the street, people wouldn't be so careless if it were a bank note.

Sunday, June 23, 2013

Karl-Marx strasse is filled with construction work and sweet tobacco from the shisha bars, passing foreign languages and mobile telephone shops. once again i swoon at Berlin.

Monday, June 10, 2013

should interactions on the street, or at work be viewed as a social transaction, be considered day to day purchases? What currency is traded in our community?

Sunday, May 26, 2013

choosing to challenge yourself:  confusing if you're used to resenting the authority figure telling you what to do. hang on; i told myself to do this? but i dont wanna...tantrum? or press the resistance into the work. produce.

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

is painting like taking out the garbage? the refuse of the past days channelled into some paint on paper. an alchemical transformation as i unburden onto the page.

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

i count off notes of freshly minted currency. invisible transactions of time as money.

can you contribute to a city with the way you walk down the street?

Monday, April 29, 2013

the difference between inhabiting a community and being a series of habits in a city

Sunday, April 21, 2013

being an artist can feel like you're standing at a vegas roulette wheel screaming double or nothing on red

Thursday, April 18, 2013

do cities stamp us as individuals? does each city direct us, mold our behaviour? do they brand us in a cohesive power? can a city diminish your sense of self?

Thursday, April 11, 2013

a city has a temperament. what effect does the city have on its people?

Wednesday, April 3, 2013

two hundred years ago in Sydney rum was the currency, it still runs on the same reckless and unruly pace, but now the currency is real estate

Sunday, March 24, 2013

my life in berlin is a series of habits, is this how a place becomes home? inhabited.

Friday, March 15, 2013

trundling along the cobblestone street in Berlin im hunched under the low zinc sky

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

inhabiting the unknown as i walk upon the city's veneer

Wednesday, February 6, 2013

 sharing public space with mobile phone conversations

Friday, February 1, 2013

daily transactions on the street of our cities

Thursday, January 31, 2013

we think we choose but we just copy each other

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

tangled up in the city i live in. what surrounds me creates me.
