A little progress was made with the hexies
some circles were appliqued on last night, these are the last of what I had prepared so need to cut some more.
Today hubby and I went for a drive into Geelong and out the other side
to have a look at the art on the silos at the Old Geelong Cement works, they are painted by a local artist Rone,
from an interview by Rone,
The work consists of three silos each painted with a large-scale portrait of local individuals, Corinna Eccles, Cor Horsten and Kelly Cartwright.
Corinna works for the Traditional Owner Corporation, Wadawurrung Aboriginal Corporation and is a direct descendent of Queen Mary of the Wadawurrung. Cor is a former cement works employee having worked at the site for 35 years, and athlete Kelly Cartwright won two medals at the London 2012 Paralympics and represented Australia at Beijing 2008 Paralympics. “Corrina helps pay homage to our First Peoples, and Cor to our industrial history. Kelly demonstrates the hard work and resilience required to overcome disability to reach her potential – particularly relevant as Geelong shores-up it’s positioning as a centre of disability service excellence,” Rone explains.
The silos are painted on the back so you have to park the car and walk along a track to the other side, but it is well worth the walk.
this was the view from the silos over the valley, lots of development and new housing going in there.
Off to sort more hexies.
