Party No 2
110 x 83 cms 1999/2002
I am no good at parties. I freeze in a corner, and this is me, wrapped up like a parcel while the hilarity proceeds round me, over me and elsewhere. The mask is, of course, from Marilyn Manson's Smells Like Children CD cover.
The trees were outside my studio at Currency Creek, S Australia and all the old ladies were actually in a Mrs Field Day competition at a Murray Bridge show, all dressed up and stood in a row.
