Six years ago, to rally support for a grant application that necessitated co-funding, I made this video. The financial assistance turned out, nevertheless, to be unforthcoming. The naivety of such an appeal potentially hampered rather than helped. How, though, can a visual artist who prefers to be locked away in a studio, working, living frugally, isolated — grow a ‘network’ that bears co-funding fruit?
No longer in Sydney, I am no longer have the equipment on the back shelf that was either gifted or sold so I could repair to Melbourne. I now work in the same studio in St Kilda in which, oddly enough, I began more than twenty years ago the watercolour specimen index that I hold in my hands.
If you can wade through the embarrassment of me trying to inspire support, if ever you have wondered what drives an artist who makes ‘hard art’, this video might help. Wholeheartedly disagree? By all means, let me know.
