It's a Small World Sculpture Prize (18 March - 9 April), Newstead Arts Hub, Victoria.

A new small sculptural work made during Melbourne's long lockdown explores connection and the idea of sanctuary within one's own 'small world'. The work was inspired by the palm trees in my local Footscray Park, an Edwardian garden over looking the Maribyrnong River. Along with 30 other artists this work made from recycled cardboard, crepe paper and cane using a twining stitch will be exhibited for the first time in Newstead. The work also includes a small plastic 3D model of myself standing in the shade of the trees. 




Nillumbik Prize for Contemporary Art (21 April to 11 June), Barn Gallery, Monsalvat, Victoria.

A woven sculptural piece 'Blacbird Girl, Kooky Tree & Bug Bush' has been selected along with 41 other works to be shown as part of this exciting contemporary art exhibition.  This work is made of interchangeable parts and represents the diversity and interconnectedness of everything. Made from my late father's pajamas and recycled clothing and cardboard the work is also a memory basket.
