I just finished wrapping up my paintings in old scraps of bubble wrap I scrounged from my floor, ready for their journey to West Space tomorrow. I begin install in the morning, and I'm really looking forward to it. I prefer to install alone which is what I will be doing for this show, except for my Dad driving my paintings into the city in his truck - that, I am really grateful for, phew! Last year in Honours at Uni, I never planned my hangs for group tutes or anything, and I think for me that's the way to go. Arrive in a space with a good amount of work, then arrange and subtract until you reach a kind of symmetry or feng shui in your mind and eye.
Last night I stayed out real late and actually went to a party, which I haven't done for an embarrassingly long time. It was Ella Hooper's birthday, and my friend Bree and I went along. The theme was 'Crappy Craft' so I made the below floral circlets from old flowers from Valentine's Day. Surprisingly although they were shoddily made, they were a huge hit with other party goers and we got lots of compliments, hooray!
