Celebrating Revela-T

Arriving in Barcelona for Revela-T 2017, I had little idea of what to expect. It is an incredibly long 28 hours by plane from Australia. The day after landing we headed out to Vilassar de Dalt early in the morning to hang the photos I was exhibiting at the Cal Garbat. Of course we got…

Cherry Oh

For want of something to say, lost for words maybe, or just the tune in my head – perhaps it’s better to quote The Stones: “whoa, eeyo, eeyo, eeyo, eeyo whoa, eeyo, eeyo, eeyo, eeyo yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,… oh cherry, oh cherry, oh baby doncha know i’m in love with…
