Open Road Painting (ORP)
Next level Free Wheeling! A great found painting by Mary Cassidy! Wish that tape worked better! Painting freed to a very nice field somewhere in Tas!
Lovely found painting called ‘Lookout in Tasmania’ at a panoramic dream hidden by some familiar Tasman weather!
Again and again, Jessie and I drove from Hobart to Queenstown, to Strahan, to Cradle Mountain, to Launceston we managed to find very minimal sunlight. Although we did find some waterfalls turned up full bore, and had some very long heated discussions about rainbows. Can you measure how many rainbows are seen worldwide each day?
Henry’s guess is yes, and estimates there are 36000 rainbows seen a day. Jessie likes the title 36000 Rainbows a Day and it spurs a series of collaborative colourful interventions! here is a very Henry modification of the outcome!
Jessie took the short cut down the waterfall and got stuck in the mud, literally! Made for some sore stomachs from much laughter!
Nothing like the Open Road!

The finale performance, had an audience of two, Lara taking photos and an older lady. I scaled the traffic lights and climbed across the roof to measure the O of spotlight. The measurements I used to shape one of the floor panels containing the painterly history of the Performad Painting Machine Tests in to a O. The Spotlight staff came out and started yelling for me to get down threatening to call the Police. Photography Lara Merrington.
Secret tea towel painting sculpture.
There was a closing reception at Penny, the Performad space was shaped into a range of wall based paintings.
I visited Tim Penny’s architecture office upstairs. I noticed this wild little simple abstract painting and asked if I could put it up in the show!
Thanks so much Sonia and Tim at Penny Contemporary for having me and Polly Dance for organising the show!
