Girl Talk by Andrew Foster, oil on canvas, 2007
Please forgive the frantic posting today, but since I work in a gallery, Thursdays & Fridays are pretty much my “weekend” before the art week starts again (and again… and again…) and the only days I actually have time to read emails, feeds and post to the blog these days (it has always made me slightly suspicious that so many blogging folks out there somehow “find” the time to post updates from work – it seems to me that I never have a single second to myself when I love my work and devote myself entirely to it, but I guess I’m just old-fashioned in this regard and that’s an entii-iiirely different story, innit?)
Anyway, now that the days are getting shorter and colder again, it can’t do any harm to remind ourselves of all that’s great about summer: Sock puppeteering under the late, golden afternoon sun with your best friend wearing your favourite underwear.
I think Andrew Foster - the artist of the above piece - has truly understood more about the essence and the meaning of life than anyone else. It all comes down to sock puppets. Yes.
The exhibition opens tomorrow at Wal*Art. That’s Wal*Art, not Wal*Mart. I know… confusing. One is for mass produced rubbish for a consumerist society and the other one is.. well.. a gallery, I guess.
All details below.
