Tash (my model) did an amazing job. I create a wearable piece but she totally brings it to life, she is the soul of Sky and Water lll. Sky and Water lll based on the Escher print, was made from sheets of aluminium printing plate, hand cut, embossed, drilled and rivetted. Also strips of rubber innertube that were sewn onto a collar to look like feathers and paper mache birds flying around the headpiece.
Yesterday afternoon, another little impromptu fashion shoot with Stephen, on location in various beautiful areas around Mandurah. I took a couple of shots with my phone, which is not a very good phone. My photos were quite beautiful, so when the professional ones appear it will be quite spectacular.
The metallic piece, using 50+ Kmart placemats that I created with Julie (Unbeaten) is currently on display in the Tourist Info Centre down in Mandurah. Sky and Water lll will be in an exhibition up in Parmelia House, Perth from next friday until 1st June. 9th June is the showcase.. there are still some tickets left for the Saturday night show which is guaranteed to be a musical, visual feast. Tickets can be purchased through MPAC Box Office. Read more about WAM here: www.wearableartmandurah.com
My next job is to apply for a 'Made on the left' market stall, and 4 schools every week next term to make Castaways Sculptures... more on that to come. Until then here are some photos :)
