Sweet Sorrento Moon/I Remember
I am sitting George Paton Gallery today at Melbourne Uni, - the group exhibition I am in 'Is It Straight?'. I thought it would be a lonely and boring day but I had lots of visitors and I was very happy. My parents even came and bought me a mini-cheesecake. Pretty good really. Now I find myself with only half an hour left and it feels like I just got here! I made these funny apple pictures to create some kind of illusion of productivity mainly for myself.
I'm really into the opulence of fruit lately, especially in my work. I've always used flowers so I suppose fruit is the next logical step. Right now I'm thinking about this time when I was 16 and I went on a trip to America with my parents and we went to this like flea market festival thing in New York and my mind was totally blown because it really was like it was on Sesame Street and it was really hot and they had these fruit stalls with huge watermelons and you could get fresh lemonade and oranges and stuff and it was like a mirage amongst the pavement. I like fruit and flowers when they are totally misplaced or something, like they usually are. We never really see fruit growing on a tree but we see it in our fruit bowl. I don't know where I'm going with this, hopefully somewhere. Right now I'm going home from a hard days work.
