alfalky A sneak peek of my work in progress for the Homemade Exchange, a collaborative online exhibition that invites conversations between artists working across different media and varied geography. I'm one of fifteen artists who exchanged and responded to a digital image of a domestic setting. It's part of @craftvictoria's Craft Cubed, viewable at http://thehomemadeexchange.com from August 1. #thehomemadeexchange #craftcubed 20h

alfalky "Art isn't ABOUT something, it IS something" - Jeanette Winterson

I keep returning to these words, they're simple but true. I think we can get so caught up in what art means and 'not-getting it' that we don't pause and breathe and look at what is really there, in front of us. These words come from an essay on how we're actually quite lazy when it comes to looking, how we go about expecting art to explain itself... Are you good at looking? Do you spend time with artworks? Do you walk right past a certain kind of artwork? Or not even go in!? I'd love to hear any stories where you were moved or changed by looking.

alfalky Morning Melbournians! My friend @emilybesser has a painting show at @hut13 called 'Adventuresome things' Opening at 3pm today I believe? She is also the maker of my most favourite necklace, the one I wear almost everyday. Go on, get down to Richmond for a glass of wine and soak the colours in on my behalf? Ok, Thanks xxx 2w

alfalky Tinkering away over here.
I'm not sure if I've mentioned this already? But you're invited to join me for a workshop later this month with @gallerylanecove in Sydney. We'll be making small scale soft sculptures and I'll be sharing my favourite ways to get started and get making even when you don't know where to begin... And ways to make small actions accumulate into something substantial. A fun day of playing around with 3D forms.
If this sounds like you there is a link in my profile.

  •   haileybe I found that quote I wanted to share with you... 😀. "I am lost and I rejoice in the openness,
    I can not decide where to go,
    So for now, I will dance where I am and be. There is no goal, no destination,
    just wilderness and life and being.
    I sing and dance and live in the wilderness.
    I am home. " 4w
