This past six weeks, the sister outlaws have been gradually moving out of our studio. For three years we have had a studio space in a warehouse with several other artists, including wonderful Carmen Reid, currently exhibiting in the Brunswick Artspace show called "First and Last" at The Counihan Gallery in Brunswick, and Robbie Rowlands, a wonderful sculptor and generous supporting soul.
It was inspiring to be around such folk and to have somewhere to nick off to on Sunday! However, with all the kids and everything else, getting to the studio was never easy. The warehouse space is going to be demolished in the next six months and, you guessed it, a multistory apartment block will replace it.So we've spent weeks sorting, down-sizing and streamlining our production. Now we have set up shop in the back room of my house. I'm still working through things and finding things and rearranging things. But, for now, we have this workable space just at my back door.
