“Even abstract shapes must have a likeness,”
- William de Kooning
Another workshop finishes this morning. I am sitting looking out overlooking Mt Solitary, Korowall it’s called to the indigenous locals. I can almost glimpse Warragamba Dam. I can’t stop thinking about what will be lost once the dam wall is raised. My Kowmung River will be flooded and too many indigenous sites destroyed in the process.
The state government is hell bent on development. Apparently we need more people in Sydney. More people equally more tax revenue. More tax revenues means they can spend more today and not worry about the depts of yesterday.
It has to stop.
Another workshop toorrow. Printmaking. Will run another one, just need to figure out when.
One spot left on Easter Monday’s nude shoot.
Tuesday 30th talk about the Namibia trip. Will post details tomorrow.
