Biblio Art entry 2018
The wonderful Biblio Art show is held each year at Blarney Books & Art, Port Fairy, where owners Jo and Dean Canham have created a truly special award. Creators select a book of their choice and create a piece that in some way reflects that book.
This is what Jo kindly wrote about my 2018 entry: "This piece is based on the Ray Bradbury novel, ‘Something Wicked this Way Comes’, and shares the same name. Artist and bowerbird Claire Macrae-Drylie has created this assemblage artwork using old photographs and found objects. This book may have forever changed the way carnivals are viewed... and in this work, Claire evokes the feelings of strange, ominous portent. Claire is a much-loved and well-known Warrnambool artist, who most recently had a solo exhibition at Melbourne’s Tinning Street Gallery."
