What have you been up to in lockdown #13 Pegs Marlow
I love admiring other people's gardens and homes. On my walks, I've developed a new appreciation for columns, balustrades and classic garden urns that I see in my suburb. They might be kitsch, but there is also real beauty in their symmetry and bulbous forms. Baluster derives from the Italian Balaustro, which means pomegranate flower, and refers to the swelling form of an unopened flower. I've been playing around with these shapes in clay, on the wheel. Only works in progress at this stage.
What have you been up to in lockdown is an online collation, a mix tape of sorts, of works, projects, and meanderings by artists whose work Mr Kitly has represented over the years.
Melbourne has been in extended lockdown since March due to corona and is currently under the strictest stay at home laws imposed since the crisis began. We are all staying at home to keep each other safe and reach the other side.
This series is a way to hear about what our Mr Kitly friends and artist community have been up to during lockdown. I miss seeing them all in person and being inspired by what they do. - Bree (Mr Kitly)
