And speaking of Nic…

…it’s probably a good time to slip in his ‘studio file’…

(above) Nicholas Folland in his studio in Adders.

You know, he’s such a lovely bloke, the art’s a bonus! Must be that Adelaide factor, we figure.

No but seriously, Nic Folland’s work is fabulous. Bold and exploratory (both in subject and intent) his installations are a thrilling construct of natural phenomena and epic narrative – caught in that moment just beyond the sound and fury. A Taming of the Shew – the shrew being Nature. Truly…(look out Nige, here comes the ‘A’ word) awesome.

Anyhoo, there’s nothing more interesting than a voyeuristic peek around an artist’s studio/abode. We love that sense of creative arrest; the mess of collected gew-gaws, the space pregnant with possibility, nothing ever quite abandoned…

Nic’s been collecting lots of crystal/pressed glass of late (symbolic of  civilization’s creep), though of course by now most of it will have made it into the piece at the Samstag.
