Tease.....It's all in the details.....!




While we were away in Sydney last weekend, my incredibly talented niece Jessica (Jessica) had the opening of her latest art show. I had been lucky enough to have a sneak preview and fell in love with this picture called 'Tease', but as it's not really good form to have a sold sticker on a work before the show has officially opened I had to take my chances...I had the time difference between Sydney and Perth worked out to the second, and relying on the assumption that most people will have a quick first look around and to be fair (why??) fifteen minutes after the exhibition opened in Perth I sent a text message through to secure my bid! I was very lucky as it was one of the most sought after pieces in the show, and now it's safely hanging on my bedroom wall. It's an ink and embroidery on stretched silk, the embroidery touches were an inspiration I think on Jessica's part and give it that extra special pizazz..!

 
Jess had her exhibition in a fabulous space in the new State Theatre that I posted here. We were mulling over the idea of possibly having a combined show at sometime in the future,  hmmm! sounds a little scary.....!! Hope you have a good Monday.....

  8. This is the cinquain I wrote to my daughter's artwork:

    "Tease"

    In the
    caress of silk
    the silent siren calls
    for you to attend to her tease.
    Will you?

    Ciao. My son asks if it is hot in Australia because he is passionate about meteorology and geography. Here in Italy it is cold.
