My 3 jellyfish were hung up in a Bloom on a beautiful tree. They swayed with the breeze and lit up at night with a super blue glow. Almost a shame that the judges didn't do an evening walk. My friend Ruth Acton, an awesome creative artist, won 'Emerging Artist' and also sold her piece, a beautiful big leaf made out of chicken wire and wrapped in weed.
The shadows it cast were stunning. My smallest jellyfish sold on the last day and I have since received an email from the lovely buyer inquiring about buying the other 2.... so a very successful weekend.
I am now home and straight back into some other projects. Through the week I am working in 4 primary schools creating entries with the students to enter into the Rockingham council 'mural competition' and also working with Ruth on the Town of Claremont ARTTRA 2017 Art Contained project. Filling a 3m cube metal container with a cardboard forest. So far I have made 3 rabbits, an owl and 8 birds... a bush and the beginnings of a huge tree canopy. 18 days left to go and a lot to do.
Finally I found out from City of Mandurah last week that my outfit for Wearable Art 2017 has been accepted on its photo entry. Yay - go me!! So judging day is looming, April 8th. I have a lot to do on my skirt but that is being pushed into the week before judging as I have that giant forest to create! My piece has been titled 'A fish out of water' . An Anglerfish made of plastic based on the plastic pollution in the oceans... I guess with scary statistics re. plastic in the seas, eventually our fish may well be 'out of water'... :(
