The Silhouette Attractor

Remember the silhouette that I spoke about when I gave you a studio tour? The photographic one with the dead Rabbit in it? Also on the wall, at the time, was an ink one done from that shape. I thought I might share what it has been doing.

I thought I intended to paint into it with white but it appears to be an attractor. It is attracting things to itself. First a little man:

Next It found some small wallaby bones:

Then this happened by:

I found that amazing little piece of paper a few years ago. It always reminds me of a house. I like the ides of a woman's body holding a house. It is one of the things I am considering painting on the figure. But I might just leave it as a photographic sequence.

And how about this?

It's a dried peach. A few months ago my daughter and her kids were staying with us and she said dried peaches remind her of vaginas. To quote,'all furry on the outside and weird and sort of messy on the inside.' So I had to go out and buy a dried peach especially for this silhouette! I'll bet you never again eat a dried peach without thinking of that now!


PS I've just realised the studio tour was on Facebook here. Hopefully I'll be able to put it on my video wall here soon. Did you know I've got a Video wall? Check it out!
