"I've been shopping!!!" - honestly, who could resist?
So many lovely options!!!...
Mike has spoilt us rotten with his wonderful earthy exhibition (visit the Tap Gallery) detailing the wonderful earthy bicycle.
Lino cuts, rubbings, solar prints - it really could have been very hard to choose except that I frequently check out his blog & had spotted my 'must-have' item!!! (see below my 'girl reaching for her purse' on left!)
Mike's oeuvre d'art reveals the limitless potential of bicycles in our landscapes whilst simultaneously beckoning Australian society to reconnect with this medium of transport.
I love the movement & the peace, the space & the dance - I love Mike's visual poetry that makes you feel you've come home - I love the figurative platform he's provided to recreate our own narrative without the constraints of state-sanctioned fear.
PS I also love Paul Van Bellen's Gazelle bicycle featured above, & am so thrilled to be sharing a house with one now!!!!
