TIM HAWKINSON



I discovered the fascinating work of Tim Hawkinson via http://foundobject.squarespace.com/ .

This piece is called Sweet Tweet. Isn't it charming? But not all of his works are as innocent and whimsical as this one. There is also a tiny "Bird" which looks fascinating until you realize it is made of finger nail pairings. Very clever though.

  5. South Australian artist Annabelle Collette had an exhibition at the Jam Factory (in Adelaide) a couple of years ago which seemed a rather obsessive-compulsive affair. among the works were dresses decorated with wishbones (from chickens) and a gruesome pair of thongs (a.k.a. jandals in NZ and flipflops in USA) which had been encrusted with 20 years worth of nail-clippings. ugghh.
