Friends of The National Art School - Plate Auction 2011












A first for me to do a plate, couldn’t for the life of me think of anything to do so I did ‘Steak and 3 vege’ paint tubes on a plate with a knife and fork, I kinda liked it but it was no way near as good as some of the others.

I shared a board with a lovely one from Eric Niebuhr, a green version of one of his paintings. John Di Stefano drilled a hole into the middle of his plate to make it look like a record, good one John. 

Todd Fuller with his signature faceless bunny or is that just a body suit, cute though. Alice Stokes has a love of drawing shiny objects and knows how to do it. Euan Macleod can do no wrong. 

A gnome by the lovely Amanda Penrose Hart, well you cant have a fundraiser without a cycling gnome can you. Dark and mysterious from Maria Gorton and finally up close and personal with an Anthony Cahill, I like his work, think he’ll stay on my radar for awhile.

It’s a great idea this plate auction, so hoping I get to do another one next year.
