A few years ago a friend of mine arrived home and announced that she had arranged an exhibition for the both of us on the theme "Its' a Corked". Unlike Lorianne , who was working on a body of work based on the packaging plans for stacking cartons on pallets, I took the title fairly literally. We were heavy into wine making at the time and the above constructions were the result. All the materials were discarded objects and were arranged to try to give a new view on vineyards and viticulture in general. Unfortunately Lorraine was killed in a road accident before the opening resulting in the event being more of a wake. All very sad for Tasmanian art.
