Another shot earlier by @tonyalbert of one of the bottletops based on actual medallions made in support of the White Australia Policy. Not very delicious.
Ah, job satisfaction and coconut reward. Thanks to Bo, @gracerosarioo and Rola for assisting me for months, wouldn’t have been able to make the work without you. Thanks to @galactic_fiera for ‘art advising’ and @olordes for in-house deejaying and both of you for everything these last months. Thanks to @tonyalbert for all your help, hosting and coconut cracking over the last days. Thanks to Ursula and Joanna, and everyone working tonight at @sullivanstrumpf for being the loveliest gallerists. Thanks to my sister @fakinandkeggs and my mum and dad for all your love and support. Thanks to everyone who came to the opening, drank milk, (and bought work and merch!) good to see old friends and heaps of appreciative audience. #textaqueen #exhibitionopening #coconuts #happy

@tonyalbert with my portrait of him “Yesterday When The War Began” in his bedroom. Such an honour to know the amazing artist and person that is Tony Albert and for him to have acquired it for his collection. His collection is incredible, he has great taste!! He just won the Basil Sellers Art Prize with a complex piece about racism in Australian sport, on show now at Ian Potter Museum in Melbourne.
