Attention Hollywood, in an attempt to pursue my lifelong dream of being an extra on Neighbours I've done something a little scary and officially joined up with an extras agency.
Ideally I would like to be in a scene with either Dr. Karl or Toadie...
Also, in city planning news, here's my pitch for a new Melbourne train network, painted in the arcade below Flinders Street Station.
Big thanks to curator Brigid Hansen for inviting me to do it. It's been up for a month and is staying there for just a couple of days more, so please check it out next time your train's delayed.
Here's a shot of me standing in front of the city loop de loop while doing a loop de loop on my yo-yo.
And also, I have a few more bits of equally exciting art news!..
If you're in Victoria, I have a new solo show that opens today at Bunjil Place gallery in Narre Warren. It's on until April 29, I've worked super hard on it and would Love for you to see it! Please click here for more info.
And if you're in Sydney, I have new work in group show that opens tomorrow 5-8pm at Cement Fondu gallery in Paddington, curated by Megan Monte and Josephine Skinner. Please come say hi!
And then next week, back in Melbourne after a couple of shifts working as a trolley boy, I'm doing a week long drawing residency in the art gallery at Deakin Uni in Burwood, curated by James Lynch.
The project is called The Drawing Room and basically the idea is that over the course of a month four different artists, (and in one case an artist duo), come spend a week within the gallery space, responding directly to the university campus and the works within Deakin's art collection. Click here for more info.
And if you happen to be around the Deakin campus next week be sure to skip class and come draw with me!
And so yeah, thanks heaps for reading and hopefully see you soon, either in an art gallery or as a 1 second background blur on your TV at 6.30pm weeknights.
