Story at Branch

Story starting with the letter B

April 30th - May 26        
9am - 8pm everyday       
26 Ross St Forest Lodge

Have a look at this fabulous space for art, design and architecture to connect with an everyday thoroughfare. More details at Branch3d. I wish that more windows around town could be used in a creative way. The work here was a playful interlude from my studio works and a lovely opportunity to make art merging with the suburbs.

Through a window, through the branches, on the tree top
birds, brooms, brushes
here we are reflected
past and future imaginings
together with abundant possibilities

suspended pages quietly in shadow and line
removed from Nature, held in museums and books
the birdsong mixed with the ordinary and disowned,
remnants of the human world.

A big thanks to Sarah Nolan, artist and director of Branch
and to the Macleay Museum, University of Sydney for a wealth of history and inspiration
(admission free, open 7 days and just up the road!)
