James Dorahy Project Space - Fleur MacDonald
OK ... so BIAS ALERT!
This is Fleur's show!
So anything said is going to be panderous ... so let's not muck around ... these are really sweet gouaches, Fleur has grabbed objects from her life and objectified them .... but imbued them with personal identities and wee nuances ...
While being absolutely biased... it is a show to go and see and even if she wasn't the other on this blog I would say that... the casually selected objects are removed from their casualness and treated with respect, fluffed up and then presented to us as a menu of what makes Fleur MacDonald "Fleur MacDonald".
There was a lot on that night ...including the Jasper Legge show at Watter's and considering how small James Dohary Project Space is, it was quite a blessing, a great and constant crowd and a few surprise guests.
Great to see the Coffs contingent and blow ins from Melbourne ...it all started with a lovely lunch at Otto... the opening... followed by a less than civilized visit to Sugar Mill... fun...
You really should go and see this work...
