Greyscale, an exhibition at Red Gallery

Greyscale is a group show featuring artwork in black, white and the scale of grey in between.

From my artist's statement:
The television greyscale display has a personal nostalgic value to the artist, taking her back to her youth when programs did not run 24/7. Patricia and her siblings often created their own entertainment. Garden snails were both a source of amusement and curiosity. That curiosity continues to this day. For Greyscale, Patricia has created a series of life sized snail sculptures, utilising real snail shells, collected over years from her garden. Her selection of paper collages reference nursery rhymes and tales.

The Sparkly Bear visits Lord Coconut

The Sparkly Bear French cuff was inspired by the pet name locals have given to the Brunswick shopping centre Barkly Square. His gentle sparkling - best seen in person - was achieved by adding neutral toned glitter to carefully applied wet paint and washes. View him at Art of the Cuff, at Lord Coconut as part of the Fringe Festival.

Crown (SOLD) was created for 

'Animal bones have played a special role in adornment from hunter-gatherer times until now. In ancient China they were decorated with inscriptions and put to the flame in a practice of divination; a way of communicating with their Gods. Many cultures believe people embody the traits of different animals.

Jewellers, artisans and designers have been given a found bone and instructed to adorn it in a masculine way, or use the bone when producing a piece of adornment for men, especially jewellery ... 
The exhibition is a comment on the current explosion of body adornment, both permanent and temporary, as seen in fashion today.'
