Words And Pictures
I have agreed to exhibit a few of my Dangerous Career Babes enamel-on-board paintings in the window gallery of Kinokuniya. The Japanese-owned bookstore is one of the largest and best in Sydney. Originally, I'd hoped to create a series of huge banners based on the series to drape from the rooftop of the building, above one of the city centre's busiest streets, for Christmas but issues of safety and public liability scotched that idea. Instead, Kinokuniya will offer a limited edition, boxed set of very small, hand-painted, acrylic on paper studies of the series, each signed and numbered. The set will include a small chap-book of my recent prose and poetry, which will also be sold separately in the store.The exhibition will open on Tuesday, 18th November, this year, and close 1st December. Kinokuniya is at Level 2, The Galeries Victoria, 500 George Street, Sydney 2000, Tel. 02 9262 7996. Opening hours will be Monday to Saturday, 10am to 7pm, Thursday, 10am to 9pm, and Sunday 10am to 6pm. There will be a a small launch party on Thursday, 20th November, from 6pm to 8pm.
