Auckland Art Gallery – Whizz Bang Pop

Auckland Art Gallery – I saw some marvellous things: (Most in the ‘Whizz Bang Pop’ exhibit)

Unsure of the artist of these two images.

Jessica Stockholder – Untitled (2003)

Ed Ruscha – Love Chief (1986) writing something massive on a canvas, especially something like ‘Love Chief’, how self-affirming.

Luc Piere – Environment III. Spent a while in this mirror-box. Reflections going on forever, stuck in a time-warp, can’t find the door. Shame is smelt of feet!

Rosalie Gasgoine – Web / Piece Work / Foreign Affairs (1994) ‘choosing to work with materials that “have had sun on them”‘ grids of weathered woods. order and repetition.

Tony Cragg – Clear Glass Stack (1999) assembelage, interlocked

Thank you Auckland Art Gallery, so much variation, and I never usually find much that I really am inspired by, so this was a nice hi-light of my trip.

Beach Submission to Things Organized Neatly.

Things Organized Neatly is a blog curated by Austin Radcliffe. The blog has been written about in New York Times Magazine and The Guardian (who wrote this: “Austin Radcliffe whose interest in right angles led him to curate a collection of reassuringly ordered images. Radcliffe denies having obsessive compulsive tendencies, but his site may please those who do.”) The Twitter is pretty exciting too.

I’ve been watching for a long time, and I was delighted when I was featured last year, with my Apple circle installation: ‘Sense’. You can see it on the TON Tumblr.

Time to submit some things I’ve created whilst in New Zealand. Items found at the beach, 1, 2 and 3. Made in collaboration with Eleanor Gannon EDIT:’other things we found at the beach’ was featured December 2011. See it here.
