Anyway, I haven’t exactly been tagged, but cool-person Deborah of In a Strange Land posted her meme of fives yesterday and I thought I may be able to adapt it to an art theme – here goes.
What was I doing 10 years ago?
Well I would have been in Wellington and I would have been hanging about The Dowse in Lower Hutt. Unfortunately they don’t have an exhibitions archive on their website, so who knows what I was looking at.
Five things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Buy art…So what 5 things would I buy?
Well to be boring a Clairmont, a Fomison and a Maddox, because I like trinities and I like Clairmont and Fomison a great deal and it would be weird to have only 2 out of three of the Militant Artists Union.
A McCahon – an I AM one or a landscape of the Otago Hills type.
The 5th is HARD. Keeping NZ…??? Ah – a miniature by Ronnie Van Hout.
Of course all that wouldn’t put much of a dent in the billions but its what I’d like.
Five jobs that I have had:
None to do with art unfortunately. Radio engineer, PA, cidermaker, IT geek, midwife.
Three of my habits:
Coffee, coffee, coffee
Five places I have lived:
Invercargill, Roxburgh, Christchurch, Wellington, Palmerston North – not very cosmopolitan.
Five people I want to get to know better:
Hmm – For a start I am going to name bloggers because well this blog has introduced me to some very interesting and cool people. None of which I’ve me in person and I’ll try and keep it arts focussed. Also some bloggers I already know reasonably well as e-friends so I’ve left them off. I hate this actually – its like ‘playing favourites’.
I am still working on updating my blog roll. You can take it that anyone there has met with my approval (haha).
And to finish – a small quiz. Where is this and how is this site (and its former occupants) relevant to NZ art? (excuse the bad photo – I took it)
