I have had a very unusual year - I've had some health issues to manage which I'm pleased to say are now resolved. I have needed some time out though, and I have given myself permission to have a break from the studio.
It has been rewarding to rest, to read broadly and to give the house and kids a bit more focus. Oh and to watch all of 'Mozart in the Jungle' which was great!
And now as I prepare to present Mrs Larritt works again it is weird and satisfying to feel refreshed.
'Mrs Larritt' the second iteration will be presented at fortyfivedowstairs (Flinders Lane, Melbourne) Tuesday 29th October to Saturday 9th November 2019.
It will be an absolute pleasure to present these works again... along with a few new pieces. Taking the work to the city seems highly appropriate as that is where Maggie and RIchard went next. To Melbourne.
I am hoping to research Maggie's time after Richard died in 2020. It will be such a pleasure to delve further into this fascinating story where a woman managed to educate at least one of her daughters to matriculation level at a time when this wasn't considered important for girls.
