‘Dragonflies’, King Street Gallery on William, 29 August – 23 September
Dragonflies in my studio, all day everyday, during Summer.
My new digs for 12 months situated in Duffys Forest, NSW – beside a – tributary – creek – running stream.
I started thinking about their ability to fly – hover – land – fly backwards – swim? Do they swim I was wondering?
They are ground dwellers, fly high and die quickly.
They only live 7 – 56 Days – should be the life span of an artist. They became my backyard buddies – elegant company.
