All I Think About is Horse Hair, All Day Long All I do is Think About Horse Hair All Day Long

…… and other reasons I haven’t written for over an entire year.  2017 was a heady year. I had the opportunity, and with it the craziness, of moving through a few countries and working in Canada,  Iceland and Portugal, where I had the honour of collaborating with the prestigious Vista Alegre Atlantis.  Since settling into surgery recovery in Canada, I’ve been musing over the last year and what I’ve really been so busy with. The reality of it is, I’ve been busy with horse hair.  I think about horse hair pretty much all day long.

During brief lapses of reality, I have taken the time to update my website with some work from 2017. New! Yay! Celebrate! The photos are a selection from my last two solos shows in Lisbon in Autumn 2017.

While you peek on that, try a listen to this. I’ll keep this one short while I ruminate on title piracy (yarrrrr.....heavy stuff for another day), healing thoughts and obviously, horse hair.

It was a great night!

Thank you to everyone who came out to the opening of Wooden Horses & Paper Planes last week. It was a huge success! It was so great to see everyone and chat over wine and snacks :) Thank you to those special ones for the pre- opening and install support as well..... you know who you are. I couldn't have done it without you!

I have attached some photos of the event in case you missed it, thanks to the photographic skills of Mário Sousa.  There will be more to come :) 

If you have not had a chance to see my show, Ill be at the gallery on Saturdays and Sundays. 14-18hr, until the closing party on August 11th. See you there!

Wooden Horses And Paper Planes

After a few weeks of procrastination and denial mixed with a healthy dose of confusion, I am happy to officially announce my exhibition at the Museu Nacional de Historia Natural e da Ciência in Lisbon!

I will show my recent sculptures and drawings in an insanely gorgeous and highly intimidating space, Antigo Picadeiro do Colégio dos Nobres from July 14th until August 11th, with the opening shenanigans on July 14th at 19hr.  If you are in the area I would love to see you there and share a glass of wine and a chat!

Thank you again to everyone who came to my last show in Iceland, So Here Only Briefly. Here are some photos from the exhibition (complete with the obligatory "Carissa laughing maniacally" photo), and of course a few more shots from my travels.

I hope to post some in progress work soon. I have been listening to this in an effort to keep my grasp on sanity firmly anchored..... however......  it may take a little bit more than a good waltz.
