on their way!

A few weeks ago I finished some large sculptures for a private commission. They just left my studio today. It has taken me a really long time to get them ready to send to Melbourne. It's not so much the packing that has taken so long (though it did take quite a while) it's fact that there are 21 parts that need to be reassembled into 5 sculptures, with 11 'legs' that don't look that different yet all must go into a specific hole. And i'm not gonna be there to put them back together again. If i was, it would be easy, but making it easy for someone else to put them together - that's hard.


.

First there's a checklist of the parts. then there's a guide to what all the tags mean (each sculpture has a number, each leg and hole has a letter etc etc.) Then there's instructions for the way that the top part of each individual sculpture attaches to the legs (they are all different). And then there's a guide to the cd of photos i've included. Much more complicated than i'd expected.


sculptures

The sculptures are called GHOSTS IN MACHINES (DESOLATION ROW 2) and are paper, textiles, wax, wood, wire and other stuff like glue and ink.

They are also incredibly beautiful.

Are they going to be exhibited in Melbourne? Or in private collection?

you are all very kind - thankyou! They are going straight to a private collection in South Yarra. I'd really love to exhibit in Melbourne again,though. Next year, hopefully maybe. Will let you know if i do!

wow, i am just imagining the diagrams for putting these together, could be works of art in themselves. great and amazing forms that conjure up all kinds of dreams in my head, i am imagining these legs walking....
