Melbournians...get to see this QUICK!

Today Fleur and I went to see Paul Compton’s solo exhibition …..it only has a little while to go and I strongly recommend a visit to this dear little gallery to see Paul’s work.

The beautiful objects he has made are not under glass….they are there for you to (reverently) touch and feel and play with. White gloves are provided should you feel the need to put something between your skin and his special work. My hands were clean and I felt privileged to be able to handle these carefully made treasures and to see up close the lovely work. It is only a little gallery and a little exhibition but I came away utterly inspired having had a huge dose of sensory input. The little tender things required close attention and an intimate appraisal….they weren’t for standing back from….you had to get in close and experience their little hearts and souls.

Thank you Paul….I have to run off and find some scissors and paper now!
