A photo-album we found during the big tidy-up in our parents' house; we have no idea what it's for and suspect it came from our grandparents on dad's side, possibly our gran collected the images. They look like examples of poses made by many different photographers, often their studio names are printed on the back. I have appropriated this book with it's contents and paint over the images with East-Indian ink and gouache

I call it metamorphoses or transformations

this is my contribution to the group exhibition in De Pluk, 'what we take with us and what we can afford to leave behind' 
 

In the last year I have lost both parents within a space of three months. People say:

'they reached a ripe old age'

'better like this than the other way around'

.....yeah right, whatever

I miss them

All I have left are memories

I've recently become enamoured by mycelium

the start of a new project: studying and researching mycelium, letting it grow......
not on my own but with a -up till now- small group of local like-minded artists 
I made an image of my bare feet on a tree trunk
to mark this new phase in my life
the wood will slowly rot and become of the earth again, in part, or maybe completely, thanks to fungi
 
fungi are amazing!
am reading Merlin Sheldrake’sEntangled LifeHow Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds & Shape Our Futures’
every paragraph, almost every sentence I've read so far is chock-a-block with exciting information and facts about fungi.....this makes for s l o w reading

The Dwelling

On the Westwall of my studio there hangs a doll-house. After a move from the East, this dwelling has been transformed from a long, vertical multi-floored house with extensions to a square construction with French doors.

It's many inhabitants are Beings who have travelled here from all over the world in search of a safe-haven.

Some are here to stay, others are just passing through.

I record their stories on my weblog Tales from the Birdhut.

If you click on the label 'dwelling' in the blog, you'll discover the many posts where you can read all about their big and small adventures.

I wish you loads of reading fun.
