I'm currently riding the wave of a Karen Carpenter obsession after I watched this super movie last night 'Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story' directed by Todd Haynes. It's filmed using BARBIE DOLLS as the main characters but it's not insensitive or crass or anything it's actually brilliant and I got all teary and it's just so good. Here is the link to part 1 (I think there's 5 in total), it goes for like 45 minutes so totally do-able before you go to bed! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrAA6VMIPb0
The above drawings/text is all from today. Caroline Miley is my Art History teacher who is incredible. If there is one person who I would just die to know what they looked like it would be her when she was young. My friend Louise reckons she would have been a hot babe and I can't help but agree. 'LEAD SISTER' is from this photo of Karen Carpenter wearing this t-shirt saying LEAD SISTER which is just so cool and I want one. N Lee Bakery is where I got my lunch today and I always go there and it's brilliant, on Smith Street just near my Aunty's gallery where it just so happens that I am in an exhibition, opening THIS Friday night at 6pm.
Gilligan Grant Gallery is at 1B Stanley St Collingwood (Just off Smith Street) and the opening goes from 6 till 8 this Friday then runs until June 25th. Would love to see some nice faces there! I got a new red dress so I'm really going to be the 'lady in red'... mmm hmm. Goodnight!
