THE INNER FRAME NARRATIVES Patricia I had plans, as soon as my son graduated from high school and move out, I would dedicate my life to art …
Im not interested in graduating …Im interested in learning …Ive actually been doing art for a long time … but now it is really serious [laughter]
…thats my doggy …he died … its a way of taking my feelings out …getting rid of them … thats what I consider a therapy for me …I get rid of all my different feelings that I dont like …
The house is sort of related to him …I found out he was having an affair …so its like, thats her and thats me Its like one horse cut in two? Yeah! [laughter] And this one is you? Of course, I am the head! [laughter].
… its like youre coming or going, you just spend the night and your leaving … the folds …I like the feel of it, it has a mysterious feel
…one of the things [he] was saying, was that the paintings I have done of Colombian things are the best … and I think it is because they are my roots So its like a higher connection? Yeah, exactly, a connection with the colours, the people, with the ideas.
I think I have gone back in a circle I started with the body and I went out of it …and now Im going back to the body … I realise that is where I start and that is where I am going to finish … I like the human body, so basically that is my story
This was one of my last ones … It is related to going back to Australia … Its like, dont look back … just go ahead …
Thats our farm, and thats the view from our … my kitchen window … and its funny but lately I feel that I just want to go home. But I know I cant …
Thats just me flying … yes Im a bird escaping from the farm
… thats my husband [laughter] … I had just read a magazine article When Good Men Go Bad … so I took those words
… I have to be careful what I write … He wanted me to agree with everything so I didnt have a voice … I couldnt do the models mouth, so I decided to leave them out.
I also got into pottery school … he said no. dont go there, marry me … Basically we had a very happy married life, we have three beautiful daughters, their lovely girls … were terribly lucky …
I feel like Im just a beginner, scratching the surface … when I was [primary] teaching I just got to the stage where I was bored stiff …
I wanted to be doing the stuff I was teaching them … and now I am …I feel totally happy and totally lucky that this place exists …
…because if it didnt I dont know what I would have done … its actually save my life really.
