birds of a feather

SHOW/S OF THE WEEK

Opening this week is an absolute must see in the window of e.g etal. New work by jeweler and artist Anna Davern, long time hml supporter and all round good egg. Her work is witty, energising and beaut all at the same time. Bit like Anna herself really...

And have you ever had one of those moments where you walk past a window and something stops you dead in your tracks? You can't quite believe what you are seeing, but it must be real because there it is right in front of you. The ladies of hml had this experience last week while wandering up Gertrude Street. There behind the normally austere glass of Gertrude Contemporary Artspace was the current show by Kate Rohde. We were instantly seduced by this plastic fantastic baroque vision. A menagerie of strange bejewelled taxidermy mysteries that really has to be seen to be believed. It's a totally immersive experience. Those of you that can't make it this week will have to make with these images, which altho beautiful can't really express how wonderous this show really is...



Can you spot the HML team in the mirrors?

really it was, we wish you all could get to it, just for starters he birds use imitation feathers crafted from painted faux fur and plastic jewels... and the pewter rococco table legs are made from what looks like silver painted rapid fill, genius.
