Another Exhibition, and Other News

Gosh, it’s been a busy year! I’ve neglected my website blog, but I’m hoping to get some more time for it soon. In the meantime, I have another exhibition I’m in!

Surface is an exhibition showcasing the varied works of final year Masters students from UNSW Art & Design. It runs from October 26 – November 6 at Gaffa Gallery in Sydney CBD.

Opening Night: 6pm – 8pm Thursday October 26, 2017

Gallery Hours
Mon-Fri: 10am – 6pm
Sat: 11am – 5pm
Sun, holidays: closed

Gaffa is located at 281 Clarence St in Sydney, right near Town Hall.

If you want to keep up with what’s going on with the exhibition, there’s a Facebook page as well as an event, and there’s also an Instagram.

My work for the exhibition uses playing cards as a canvas.

As for what else is going on right now, I’m nearly 3/4 through my Master of Art at UNSW! It’s been pretty hectic. I’ve been working in everything from painting to digital media, plant sculpture to jewellery, even a bit of noise art. When things calm down over the summer, I think I’ll start posting about some of the things I’ve been doing and update all the other areas of my website to show off my work.

In the meantime, I have actually been posting some things! Just not here. So if you’d like to see some of it now, here are my best links:

If you go to the “posts” tab and then pick the “public” tag, you’ll be able to see some of my recent projects! Or, if you’d like to support me for US$1/month or more, you’ll get access to all the extra goodies too! That includes behind the scenes things and work in progress, and is also just a really great help and encouragement to me to keep doing what I do. Either way though, I appreciate your ongoing interest in my art, and I will be making more public posts as I complete new works, so stay tuned!

I started off mainly posting my zombie toys, which I creatively repair when my dogs tear them apart. But lately I’ve also started adding images of my art, both finished and in progress.

Probably the easiest way to get in touch with me, since I live there. It’s a bit quiet, partly because I don’t agree with how Facebook handles page post visibility, but I do post updates now and then, and see your comments faster than on any other platform since I basically live on Facebook these days.

As for some other links, if you’re interested, I’m on a few more platforms…

Mostly old works, need to update this as well!

YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/DestroyerMariko
I recently started vlogging again, mostly about my life and my thoughts.

Twitter: https://twitter.com/DestroyerMariko
Occasional political comments or articles about mental health usually.

Well, that’s it for today! I’m very nervous, but also keen for the Surface Exhibition, it’s in just under two weeks, oh my gosh! Lots of work to do! But I’ll try not to be a stranger anymore ^_^ not long to go til I have free time again!
