Farewell to GRANTPIRRIE Gallery
I would like to farewell Grantpirrie Gallery after ten great years.
Bridget Pirrie and Stephen Grant began representing me very early in my career,
just a few months into GRANTPIRRIE's first exhibition year in 2002.
We have achieved some great things together since then, including a hugely
successful solo show at The Melbourne Art Fair 'My body remembers' 2006 and
three years of consecutive representation at ART HONG KONG amongst
key GRANTPIRRIE artists (ART HK09, ART HK10 & ART HK11.)
As GRANTPIRRIE has just closed it's doors I would like to extend a
HUGE THANKS to Bridget and Stephen for their enormous support, faith, investment and vision.
Also a BIG THANK YOU to Co-Director Tony Stephens for his energy, innovation and
support over the last few years!
There have been many people involved over the years,
whom it has been an honour and a pleasure to work with.
Much gratitude to everyone who has supported my work through
GRANTPIRRIE over the years, often above and beyond the call of duty.
YOU ARE ALL AMAZING!
Gillian Serissier, James Steele, Ella Barclay, Clare Lewis,
Sarah Cashman, Elise Routledge, Anneke Jaspers, Zoe Hart,
Sarah Blacklock, Nicola Morgan, Charles Jarmon, Clementine Blackman,
Michelle Newton, Lauren Reid & Gina Mobayed.
Apologies to anyone I have left out.
There is of course an extended network of art consultants, curators and individuals
whom I have worked with through GRANTPIRRIE over the years.
THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT SO FAR and I look forward
to a continued working relationship in the future in association with my current Gallerists:
Karen Woodbury at Karen Woodbury Gallery, Melbourne, Australia and
Wendi Norris and Raman Frey at Frey Norris in San Francisco, USA or on external projects.
and last of all
A HUGE SHOUT OUT TO MY FELLOW GRANTPIRRIE ARTISTS over the years!
Wishing everyone much success in the future!
