Trev SHREDDING on Henrys painting Boardart!

trevdance

Trevors whole life is a performance, a favourite stage for Trev is the Court! In a recent case he was given special court conditions of not being allowed to carry in his belongings ( his bags!). Which has led to more Court house performances! Trevor lives completely outside of the known conventions of society, I admire his passion for freedom of expression and for standing his ground. This was one of many spontaneous rap dance performances by Trev after a day in the Court!

Franck Gohier and Chayni Henry have a wonderful studio called Red Hand Prints! I hung out for a day with Franck and Chayni and their beautiful children. Their set up is amazing, including a range of incredible old school printing presses, screen printing and a great collection of art and allsorts! www.redhandprints.com

Lake Argyle, there was a great infinity pool overlooking this incredible man made lake. I planned to build a raft out of boards to float around in the pool wearing a suit and tie.

I met Nic from Belgium in Broome the day I was leaving, he works as special effects guru on feature films! My imagination went wild with the possibilities of what we could make as we convoyed to Darwin with some painting tools, HMS and Nic’s motorbike. Nic was leaving two days after me and unfortunately broke down near Derby, twice and deemed his bike done and caught the bus to Darwin.

Nic gave me this postcard.
