good morning lovelies! happy anzac day. i'll tell you a funny story, because i'm one silly goose. i had a nice sleep-in, got showered, dressed and went on my merry way to work. goma was expecting massive crowds today from 12pm, so i felt ready, mc hammer blaring from my ipod. i reported for briefing just after 11.30am only to find out it was infact my ado! oops. dedicated worker? i think so. i soon headed off home and did what every sensible thrifter would do on a public holiday...i sniffed out an open opshop ready for me to scour. i found a few treats on my walk home and with a soy caramel latte in one hand and vintage treats in the other, i knew this was my real calling today. i picked up a few goodies that i will be incorporating into my august exhibition, which is seriously so much fun. opshopping for an exhibition..as if i needed a reason! there is a theme for this body of work, and that is excessive sentimentality. i originally discovered this term after searching for the meaning of kitsch, which ES is derived from. this sums up my creative practice to a T! although this won't be the name of the group exhibition, i wanted to be able to tie my ideas together under one influence. there you have it. i'm the soppiest sentimental type ever. so it's perfect. i will be back in the week with some inspiration for you all. i have discovered a few new blogs and they're definately worth chatting about.
