Biblio Art Prize 2020.

I thought this would be fun to enter. Artists were invited to submit an art work that responded to a book they were allocated to read. The books were pre-selected from Australian novels which had been published in the last 12 months. The aim was to support homegrown writers.

 

I was allocated the book Sorrow and Bliss written by Meg Mason. The work I created, Fragile – sorrow and bliss, aimed to show the fragility of lives, of love and of relationships. How the duality of light and dark is in all of us. At times the darkness is within, at times it’s the lightness we keep hidden away. We follow Martha (the protagonist) between the golden moments of bliss to the broken depth of sorrow and despair.

Buried within the collections of the State Library of Queensland are two original photographs taken during a séance held in Brisbane on 24 October 1888. The photographs show an excellent example of independent slate-writing, where (purportedly) spirits of the dead communicate with the living by writing messages on a slate in the presence of a medium.

This November I'm heading to Canberra to participate in DESIGN CANBERRA OPEN STUDIO. Having worked and lived in Canberra for over 15 years it's like a second home- yes, I'm a Canberra lover!
