This is a little belated but wanted to share anyway! Last August Janet De Boer from Textile Fibre Forum Magazine asked to do an article on the embroidery group show I organised at the Brunswick Street Gallery called 'Needle Work Needle Play'. The article was published in the November magazine (in the midst of my baby haze - hence forgetting to share it). Janet kindly sent me a few extra copies and I have 3 to giveaway to the first people who send me an email or leave a comment before 31st January.
I am slowly returning to some time and head space where I can think about art stuff again! After going on a break last November and having a little girl Edith there has been little time to think about much else but baby stuff. However I have been visiting an awesome book store in Melbourne called Brunswick Bound on Sydney road and they have a fantastic selection of art books which is going to send me broke but check out these awesome books I found there! The first is 'Black Antoinette - The work of Olaf Hajek', my new favourite artist. I love his use of colour and particularly love the Black Antoinette series - beautiful. You can find out more about his work here.
Next is a memoir of Grace Coddington model turned art director of Vogue America - whom I loved in the 'September Issue' she has a fantastic visual eyeand her life has been really interesting to read about so far.
Lastly is 'The Nightingale and the Rose' by Oscar Wilde illustrated by one of my favourites Del Kathryn Barton. I am yet to pick up this layby but very excited to look inside. I love Del's work!
Hopefully these books might inspire some of you out there. Would love to hear what everyone else is reading/inspiring them.
