About 3 months ago, I was invited to exhibit work in the upcoming Go Troppo Arts Festival in Port Douglas. The festival runs 22 - 31 October 2010 and is a showcase of Far North Queensland creative talent together with some arts workshops and other activities. The title for the principal art exhibition of the event for this year is Destination Paradise ... a theme which is open to individual interpretation by invited artists.
I decided on a large sculptural installation which reflects one of the aspects of 'paradise' to me. The work is currently in the final finishing stages and will be ready by the end of next week ... cutting it fine for the October 18th deadline. Initially I was working on the project whilst still covering my normal workload but knew I would never get it completed in time, so have dedicated the last month to the sculpture.
I'm hoping to shoot some preview images in the next couple days and will post some background information to the work and pics soon.
