David and I have at last safely received the Jeff Mincham piece that we bought from Mossgreen Auctions in July. It is dated c. 2006 and, at 76 cm high, is one of our largest pieces. (Only our Ian Sprague bullet form is taller, with a height of 110 cm.) With a bit of a stretch, our new Jeff Mincham fits into our “Pale and Interesting” theme for this season with its cream, tan and pale viridian colours and our main issue at the moment is to find the best place to display it. With a very narrow profile, it is probably best set against a wall but it also needs to be seen in the round. Moving it from one place to another will keep us happily engaged over the weekend when not entertaining visitors.
I visited the Jeff Mincham: Ceramics exhibition at the Watson Arts Centre yesterday. It was wonderful! This Object Gallery exhibition is part of the way through a tour to twelve venues across the country from 2010 to 2012, but I can’t tell you where it goes next. The Object website has got me stumped.
