My rather remote Davis Station sculpture garden in east Antarctica is now presented in a book recently published under the titled - Atlas Obscura. This mini 3D art project of mine created at the end of the austral summer of 2004 somehow still holds together after many blizzards have passed through the garden wind blasting all in its path with katabatic strength. I still hope that future expeditioneers and/or artists add to this site sitting very far south of anywhere.
Once again I rushed through the fine cities of Perth and Melbourne on my way back to S.America. Carolina found me at the Santiago airport covered in jetlag and duty free aromas after which we spent a few days in the interesting but sadly smog coated Chilean capital. I slowly shed Broome pindan dust, Melbourne drizzle and tasty W.A. wine flavours from my system as we drove over the Andes back to La Consulta.
A massive line at the Argentinean customs and immigration frontier slowed us down getting back to the casa. We also passed a horrific four truck accident in the mountains where one vehicle drove off a cliff. Not a good scene at all. Upon arrival back to LaConsulta I began to set up my studio with the intention of working on a set of drawings and some new engraved pearl shells. I best put on my paint encrusted studio jacket and get to work and then perhaps it is BBQ-time in the garden under the Andes.
