gether all the time.”
Our team of workers who are our front facing , public interaction are imperative for many reasons. Part being our desire for uninterrupted time in the studio.
Separating ourselves into us being the creators and parts of our team being both the frontline sharing and portraying our visions and also allowing us the space and time to be immersed in our work.
We are innately reclusive and also there are only so many hours in the day. So our diverse team play a very important part in allowing us our solitude for art and projects whilst they interact with the the broader world around us.
That’s the plan anyway and like most plans, they are hard to keep on the road, meaning our studios are often an endless revolving door and all desires for time just to concentrate on art more resembles a circus than a sacred place for art.
We work on this as we work on encouraging our team who interact with the world to be warm, inviting, engaging unlike many galleries whose approach is to throw their nose in the air and treat gallery visitors to a range of judgement and coolness that portrays that people interacting with art are carefully scanned to make sure they fit the intended mould. We do all we can not to be like that. Why? Because the other is rude, presumptuous and alienating.
From Frankie, Flavie, Emily, Nikki and Beatrice in our Melbourne spaces, to Elle (who openly admits she loves being the back up singer in the band), Cristina, Narelle, Josh in our Daylesford gallery, through to our team in Castlemaine at the Gaol … Jess, Callan, Mitch, Fiona, Nicole, Jasmine, Benny Truly, William... Through to those in our behind the scenes Domenic & John like brothers to us, Simon K bringing to fruition David’s visions through tools, Studio and Design team who are probably as reclusive as ourselves…Dats, Simon, Sarah, Soph, Geoff…Right through to Enza and Joletta like sisters to Yuge who help her keep the back end cogs turning and oiled. Of course and Nell whom without which our family would be a bit lost.
