Research School of Humanities Forum Friday 5 June

I would like to congratulate the intrepid team from the Painting Workshop for the fabulous presentation at today’s Research School of Humanities Forum. Our fearless leader Ruth set a very high bar in her introduction and Suzanne and Nicky excelled in articulating the complex issues from their different standpoints. Their work looked fabulous and Ruth made sure there was an equally impressive range of images from the rest of us including some shots of very serious insects, deep in thought and examination of work during last week’s intensive (thanks to Viv!). I would particularly appreciate the opportunity to mull over some of the many (many!) pertinent observations delivered at hair-raising pace by Ruth in the necessary but totally inadequate time frame of 15 minutes – a Walleroo triumph worthy of a Big Red (which we all know she is). Maybe it (and the other papers) can be posted so we can all benefit from a more leisurely contemplation.
Thanks and bravo!
