Mom’s Spoons is a series of stone lithographs of my mother’s travel spoons completed at Megalo Print Studio in Canberra, ACT. They was shown in a group exhibition with Katy Mutton and Stedman Watts entitled Saudade: The Presence of Absence. The work explores working-class relationships to trinkets as life markers and memories of loved ones.
Modern Baseball is a series of paintings referencing my father’s sign paintings completed for the Dunkirk, NY, Little League Baseball field and Ellsworth Kelly’s Red, Yellow, Blue III (1966). It was exhibited at AD Space in Sydney, NSW, Australia. The work explores the relationship between manual and intellectual labour and questions the role that content and context play in assigning value.
Shirts That Smell Like Yellow is a series of paintings created by my father over a thirty plus year career in a factory manufacturing offset lithography ink. Acting as Duchampian Curator, I fit the work shirts over stretchers, hung them in a gallery, and wrote of them as art and of him as artist. The paintings were exhibited at The Workers Cottage Studio and Gallery in Ainslie, ACT,Australia, on May Day.
