It was the night before set-up, and all through the house...

...was the sound of muffled snorts as I watched tonight's episode of Ashes to Ashes and tried not to wake up the boys. I haven't been wholly comfortable with this crass extension of Life on Mars up to now, but tonight's episode made me laugh like a drain, especially the scene in the police station with all the Socialist feminists. Brought back memories of all the Resistance and DSP meetings I used to attend when I was a horizontal recruit (don't get me started). I'd like to bottle that episode, bring it out whenever I'm glum.


(These are 'Let Go' kites, ready to stick on the wall in formation)

OK. I'm ready. Tomorrow is installation day, and will probably involve a fair bit of plinth painting before I can get everything in place, because I'm borrowing some plinths from my studio complex, and they have a completely different shade of wall colour to the Megalo gallery. It will be such a relief to stop thinking about this body of work, and to let it go out into the world.


(This is a detail of the book of the epiphany a few days ago. I'm very happy with it.)

Damn, I knew I was missing something last night when I sat at the computer writing a press release. I have had same feeling about 'Ashes to Ashes' and now I've missed what was obviously a great episode. The kites look stunning just waiting there in the photo, please put on more photos of the exhibition. All the very best - I'm sure it will be fabulous.

Those kites do look excellent, wish I could see them in person too.

Looks great in your studio and will be fab on the wall at the gallery. Wish I was coming to see it; have a glass of something good for me at the opening! Sara

I started to watch Ashes to Ashes in my sterile Northbourne hotel room, but yet another retread of the off the shoulder number and the blue eyeshadow was too much for me. Is she sleeping under her desk, or what?
