SHOW OF THE WEEK: Take Flight
Two of our favourite artists/collaborators have been so so very busy this past few months. Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison have achieved what would be impossible for us — have work ready for a new show and go to over 40 films at the recent Melbourne Film Festival. Do they ever sleep?
Geelong Gallery plays host to their latest show All breathing in heaven which continues their exploration of both animal and human worlds and where they intersect. Through the time honoured traditions of collage and drawing these two magical makers have created a world of their own that is totally beguiling.
The ladies of hml are big fans, having bought journals, zines, prints and collages in the past so we cant wait for the road trip. How amazing to see so much of their work on display. We often joke that in some parallel universe we would be as talented, intelligent and beautiful as these two and produce work as seductive. We will have content ourselves with being fans and collectors.

Thank-you, Ramona and Beck, "makers, collectors and fine purveyors of all that is crafty", for the handsome compliments you have paid us. We think you two are "talented, intelligent and beautiful" too, and we both blushed ear-to-ear upon reading the above. See you in the MIFF 2014 queue to swap tales of films seen and films to come, if not before that. Perhaps we'll bump into you at the Gallery.
Double checking all 464 postcard collages are behaving themselves.
All works holding their position, & an artists' book with a Plush-capped finch on the cover safely delivered.
All in order.
One last look.

And in other news recently shared, G and me at The Australian Ballet's dress rehearsal of La Slyphide last night. I cannot wait to see this performance again next week.
