The much anticipated documentation of Hiding Places has been published today and can be viewed in the right column of this blog. Double click on the slide show to be taken on a tour of the Lockup cells which were transformed into a series of Hiding Places during the July Exhibition at The Lockup Cultural Centre Newcastle.
Beginning with the Raspberry Serpent Den you will notice polka tongues are playfully licking at the floor, are they spitting out fur balls ? Or laying soft pastel eggs ? You can decide.
Secondly, the imagination is taken into the Cloud Room, where the painting Clouded Desire is the feature piece. Dive into its seductive powder blue hues if you dare.
Across the other side of the cell block is the pink chamber of cakes, a luscious landscape in plush and paint that offers a window out into another world.
Finally, the ever changing glow of the powder puff will entice you into the last cell: Drive in Movie.
Feature sculptures like Marilyn will have you transfixed with her elegant chiffon and sexy black rubber.
