Briefcase Show

At Boutwell Draper, organised by Simon Barney Briefcase 50 2002
My briefcase offering, a lightbox contains hot glue maps of the area, plastic money and ID. There are all sorts of samples and preserved collections in perspex and plastic bags, including a fake coin collection.
I often make money. I draw it, photocopy it, photograph it and fax it. I keep copies of strange bills and I dissect the money that goes through my hands daily. I forge my own credit cards (not literally, but I make facsimiles out of them). I copy my passport and licenses.
The fucking Gallery put number stickers on the perspex...what idiots.

Tourist trade


Simulations of money in hot glue, simulation of greenery, in a green perspex box (inspired by my garden).
I try to work intuitively when I am tracing work for a show. I try to research as much as possible about a place, and my biggest mantra is "Trust your instincts" and work intuitively. With all that I know, I do the best that I can do. I am always pleasantly surprised when I get there and find empathy with the environment. I feel part of the world I am looking at, and there is nothing better than that.
I discovered pawpaw salad, and ate so well! I have never eaten better.

Heat





It was winter in the tropics, and still 32 degrees every day. As soon as I got there it was exactly as I'd expected. It had just rained and was glowing green fecundity. Every growing thing was bigger and greener than I had ever seen. We stayed in a nice little place and hit the pool as soon as possible. The locals were walking around in jumpers! It was the most amazing experience, being so far from home yet still in Australia.
After the show opened we rented a tiny car and some swags and drove to Litchfield National Park, then on to Katherine for the night. I have never swum in a pool whose water you could drink. It was awesomely beautiful out there.
