Coming back into the blogosphere after a long absence is being met with an honest reluctance, I must admit. However, it feels necessary to clarify a few things on where Woody’s Studio is going.
Efforts in researching and being involved where interweaving art and human health issues (endometriosis, for example) is no longer a focus. Abandoned, actually. Disappointing, yes, but move on. The circumstances that surround and confront us now highlights a need to engage in more fun and engaged personal creativity. That’s how I feel anyway. Selfish. Total. And I don’t need to apologise for that.
I just want to have some fun in my practice and output.
What does that mean for doing a Masters in Visual Arts? I don’t know. That will take time to figure out. For now, perhaps, for another 12–18 months, my Woody’s Studio is, indeed, in a period of flux, including myself. I do know that I will soon (hopefully!) complete a Graduate Certificate in Visual Arts at Griffith University, in Brisbane.
For the foreseeable future, keep an eye on Woody’s Studio’s bookFace (think about it!) and Instagram, for what conjures up intuitively…
Heading down, or up and around South Bank in Brisbane this fortnight? Visit Griffith University’s Queensland College of Art and check out the Grey Street Gallery!
… and that’s my drawings below, yasss. However, not part of the exhibition. Another work is … guess you’ll need to go and find out!
All The Small Things
In times of uncertainty, such as our experiences over the last eighteen months, it’s not uncommon to stop and reflect. All the small things has provided an opportunity for us to contemplate and share our experiences of those small things that are of significance to us. Twenty-three post-graduate art students planned this exhibition and have created works-in-progress for public review, feedback, and comment. You are invited to visit the gallery space to view the works, to reflect on what small things mean to you and to engage with the art students to assist them in finalising their works.

After many, many, many considerations, with thanks to all current events around the place, the decision to complete a Masters at the University of South Australia is over.
Griffith University’s Queensland College of Art (QCA) has now taken me!
If an achievement of an adequate grading Graduate Certificate in Visual Arts is completed at the end of this year, I hope to enter QCA’s Master of Arts programme.
However, every effort in securing some form of permanent employment remains a key objective, along with various quirky Woody’s Studio projects to coincide. My health conundrums faithfully remain to remind me of my certain limitations though. An added bonus to that is a nicely unreliable car!
The rough-around-the-edges Schlock comic strip will pop-up every now and then, and you may find me participating in various exhibitions around south-east Queensland throughout 2021.
The pandemic is likely to still give curve balls, so nothing is ever concrete in the planning. Impossible.
But nothing is impossible until it is done, right?
