A few things from the week
I did some painting:
Acrylic on A3 watercolour paper
The top work reminds me of some of Phillip Guston’s drawings, which is no bad thing.
I read this article – What Happens When a Computer Runs Your Life.
I wish the article went deeper but having used and been interested in the random for my practice this is fascinating. Find the guy’s website here: maxhawkins.me
I rewatched this:
Webstock '11: Merlin Mann - Scared Shitless: How I Learned to Love Being Afraid of Pretty Much Everything from Webstock on Vimeo.
Webstock ‘11: Merlin Mann - Scared Shitless: How I Learned to Love Being Afraid of Pretty Much Everything otherwise known as The one where Merlin cries.
I listened to the Stone Roses a lot:
And this, from the Guardian, made me smile. (Did you have Panini stickers in NZ?)
And don’t forget there’s a new gallery opening in town tonight – Millers O’Brien.
I know Jhana and Laila have been working their arses off to make this happen. It’s been a long and crazy ride so it’s great to see things come to fruition. Launching both the gallery and their first exhibition, the doors open at 5pm. You can find the gallery at Level 1, Mibar Building, 85 Victoria Street (It’s the building Lido cafe is in, with the doorway between Lido and Vessel). It’s great there’s another galley in town so do pop in and support them and their artists.
Have a great weekend!
