What do you think? Is this too much of a stereotypical judgement? Keeping in mind i live this very argument everytime i talk to my family about what exactly i do at art school!! And not that being able to appeal to the masses is a hindrance to Reihana's or Amituanai's work. The attendant also said something about how Amituanai's photos, to her, were rather kitsch, which was something i hadnt thought and made me approach them completely differently.
This is the Paramount Award Winner of the Wallace Arts Trust Awards. If you are in Wellington, you can see the exhibition from the 11 October – 3 February and make your own judgments.
The Walters Prize however, is on until the 23rd November. Check it out here: http://www.aucklandartgallery.govt.nz/exhibitions/0809waltersprize.asp
p.s. To those of you who i talked to about the gps bus system not working at my bus stop, i finally ended up calling MAXX to report the broken system only to be put 6th in the line with 2 minutes left of credit on my cell phone...and someone has conveniently put a greenpeace sticker over the other timetable so it cannot be read. Ah the woes of public transport...

hmm...perhaps they can explain this particular photo....
Claudia dancing with us via Skpye at D.A.N.C.E at artspace!!
Our lovely Claudia and Ahi are having rad adventures in America without us. They have also been kind enough to keep updating us on their progress on their facebook group Claudalapalapa!! find it here and join up:
Here are some of my favourite photos so far. No postcards as promised yet :( Claud and I were wanting to do some sort of homage to On Kawara and his 'I Got Up' series but perhaps our idealistic visions of having enough time to do so was a little off. But it's not too late!! I've been drawing up some postcards lately that i might send to them when i get the chance...will update if i receive anything back.

So leads me to give you this, which has quite possibly made my week. (it really doesn't have much to do with painting except that i'm an both an avid Sesame Street and Feist fan (solo and in Broken Social Scene), but perhaps you can make some conceptual leaps).
Thus i present: procrastination at its finest ladies and gents...
p.s. who was your favourite sesame street character? I was always partial to Big Bird, i wonder what that says about me...
