It’s been an unexpectedly busy, but lovely weekend. As of Friday night, I had no plans for the weekend at all. But all of a sudden, a series of “spontaneous invitations” came through for lunch and dinner yesterday, and to catch up with my friend Kate, today.
We haven’t seen each other in real life for almost a year. The last time was at the opening of the Biennale of Sydney in March last year. At the time, Kate joked, “this might be the last gathering we go to for a while” and indeed she was right. She’s been coming to Sydney regularly to take care of her 93 year old mother, but trying to limit her interactions to protect her own health, and that of Joan. We’ve Skyped and spoken on the phone many times, but realised today, last March was the last time had seen each other in real life. So for most of the day, we masked up.
We also visited the exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, featuring the works of Lindy Lee, called “Moon In A Dew Drop”. There’s a few works which did absolutely nothing for me (a range of very “dark” works), but there’s also lots of works like the two below which I really, really loved. I really love the way her works “play” with light and dark, and shade and colour. Definitely worth a look.
