Thought your Poko Ono mugs were just about the coolest then saw your Modfish bowls.

You come up with some of the coolest tiki art ever.
Great job!!

Special Thanks to Janet and Tony Peake of kustom lane gallery
and their darling helpful kids! and a special hats off to that
master of Calligraphy,Striping and mastery of Enamel.. Matt Bailey
for taking us about the town and filling us with Culture!
But more of that later......

My humblest thanks,tikiskip!
It has been a weird journey,stumbling into and connecting with So many folks of
strong ideals,talent,genius,motivation,knowledge,and humor over the years...
it's that cauldron of creative energy and ohana that is a constant inspiration!
The opportunity to take chances and try different avenues and presentations
has been exciting.. i feel very fortunate and blessed to live amongst such folk!

and the same ohana was displayed after our 15 and a half hour flight to melbourne...
Between sleep and rank bloody marys, we remained intact. Janet Peake and Matt Bailey greeted us with an Australian flag festooned with verbage from our exhibition a few days hence!



What a beautiful blend of daring modern and Classic Victorian/Empire style architecture,and even some flying buttresses!After dropping our stuff off at their home and heading to the gallery
we unwrap our pieces and Tony,the owner of kustom lane
states he wants to hang the show and mr. bailey will be taking us to the national gallery of Victoria
for some KULL-CHA! (that's Strayan for "Culture")
and Boy he did!
Here's some hi-lights....
the Boys tend to get distracted,although this Siren was quite inviting!
Her name was Sheila and i think Doug took her for a "Root in the Dunny"!


Here's one of a collection of Exquisite Feather headdresses !
Such an Inspiring Day!


Blisssssssssss!
You could get all up close and feel the effort and work and determination and Communication
of these pieces..Chills!


See the Birdie?!?!


Not sure if the Seahorse motif was intentional around the eyes...
but the gears started turning upon viewing!


Melanesia REPRESENT!


Sepik River REPRESENT!



This storyboard/portable shield was STUNNING!
i do believe it has latched itself onto my painting hand
and is guiding it into unknown territory...
A lil bit of the overlapping/stacked style of Indonesian and Bali paintings
i likes it!
it's the...
Wowz...


There was a huge room with a Vanuatu Slit Gong and a whole wall of shields!


Here is one of my favorites from the trip....


And JUST when i thought my art geek tank was on full...
Greek Amphora Vases!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Heaven!


and then..... some frickin Burne Jones!!!!!!!!!!!!!
blew away the Picasso Crying Woman,and even the Turner,in it's tactile softness and beauty thru quiet..


Winding along the Yarra River
a anticipating our exhibit in 2 days!


Australians are really lazy with their words...
A nation of Nicknames! i ranted during the opening (only for a minute or two)
i think it's because they need that brain-space for wordplay and puns upon puns...
Anyways McDonalds becomes MACCAS!


Flying Buttress!


Finally we were returned back to our mum,Janet
and i'll save the next entry for the next post....




And now for a few Art catchup thangs....

First off! Those YUGE 4 foot shield/masks for Howie's Tiki in Spring Texas
were finally delivered and are now living there happily!

These beauties were the result of a collaboration with Billy the Crud
I drew em
he carved and built em
and then i painted them up to make them appear as if they were
dredged up out of some abandoned village...


in situ...

8 x 10"

Aloha Ohana!
Tick Tock!
Times A'Wastin and Tiki Oasis is only a handful of earth rotations away!
Needless to say,the Australian Recap will have to wait for calmer times
(or i may just blog the whole dang thang on my website and provide a link...
Speaking of....added two new folders....both Tiki!
one with Crocs and Birds
http://www.kinnyruzic.com/gallery/totems-huts-birds-and-crocodiles

and the other involving travel....migration.....voyages...
http://www.kinnyruzic.com/gallery/voyages-to-uncharted-realms

Anyways... i will share a series of pieces i've been working on
that feels familiar to older ventures and styles,but hitting it just right
IMHO.of course....
your opinion may differ
that's what makes life so wonderful!


But first,i'd like to chat with some recent visitors
if you would indulge me
you will be rewarded with eye-popping works
THAT WILL BE AVAILABLE AT TIKI OASIS this year
in the LAnai Suite by the pool!
with Thor and Doug Horne and Crazy Al!
It gets like a genius stew around there....
SO Inspiring!

Thank you my dear! I was happy to be able to share some of the treasures there... There's just SO much work out there,such variety and primitive brilliance in each piece! The Instagram thing is fun.... Kind of low maintenance and a great way to share the work with folks outside of our Ring of Cool here!

YOU Rock,Bradley! MAD LOVE to you! Hopefully our next encounter will be less hectic and brief! You are such an inspiration and friend and confidante with arcane and secret art stuff! Another Oasis without you ...sigh! Will raise a glass to mug to you during the weekend,Buddy! Get some painting done for us all during that time...Gotta keep the torch goin,y'know....


Okay... So y'all remember those woodburns and drawings a few years back,inspired by figures on a Solomon island paddle?
No?
Well, i do,and about a month and a half ago
decided to invite
Jim Flora,Mary Blair,Leonard Weisgard,and Alex Steinweiss
to this improvisational art stew
playing with the way they abstracted objects,
achieved texture and distance,
played with shapes and negative space,
set an emotional tone with color
made art GRAPHIC
blurred the lines between artist and designer
and came up with these pieces i will now share with you



ANYWAYS.....
these are the pieces that were born from this
"throw a bunch of styles in a blender
and fine tune it
and stylize it further
and make something new"
jag...

"Drummer at Dawn"
acrylic on wood
15 x 30"
(private collection)


"the Hunting Party"
acrylic on wood
15 x 30"
(private collection)


"the Crocodile god"
acrylic on wood
30 x 15"


"the Hungry Inhabitants"
acrylic on wood
30 x 15"
(private collection)


"the Big Catch"
acrylic on wood
10 x 20"
(private collection)


"the Summoning"
acrylic on wood
15 x 30"


"Arrival"
acrylic on wood
15 x 30"
(private collection)


These are pretty big,so i'll post some close-ups when i get a smidgen of time,m'kay?
Hope you enjoy these,Ohana!
G'night!
