ephemera halo drawings at 39 studio. Foamed concrete dust, broom/brush, rake and vacuum
“…see the Southern Cross? It is not flat, like on the flag. See the brightest star – at the foot of the cross? and then the two less bright – the top and left stars and then a lighter star – and then the palest. Now pull the brightest star closer towards you and the paler stars further away to make it 3d. If you can do that, then do it to the whole night sky. It is being under hung lights. Once you see it you cannot go back to seeing the stars as a painted dome over your head”
Somewhere on Newcastle Street is the studio space. It is run as a collective. Being in it, it is not easily described. Words cannot convey the characteristics of the work method in the space or the workings of the cohort of people that make up the collective. I suspect that when it is gone, only then will we be able to give an account for how it worked, and how vivid and vital it was.
