Love at home in Melbourne

 

Melbournites James and Melinda received a Love Sign to warm their newly reno’d house and welcome their newly arrived baby Lola. Happy days.

Queensland Museum acquires wordy artwork

US/ME/U/MUSEUM - Alan James, 2012

Delighted to report that Queensland Museum has acquired my US/ME/U assemblage.

This was the signature piece from the Bespoke installation I contributed to at the Museum late last year. More here.

Thank you Museum. It had your name all over it ; )

Love in Paris

Love Sign in Paris - Anne Valverde photo

Love looks quite at home in the home of the fabulous French photographer Anne Valverde.

That’s Anne’s Eiffel Tower photo on the left, and Robert Indiana’s famous LOVE in the background. Such esteemed company!

Merci Anne!

Love Sign goes for $500 at charity art auction

The Love Sign was among the art up for grabs at Laruche’s One Small Miracle Charity Art Auction—in support of the Mater Foundation’s Little Miracles campaign. And it sold for $500—which is the most ever paid for a Love Sign! A great result for a great cause. And it has a great new home in a dance studio in the Brisbane CBD.

A second Love Sign was donated for a prize draw and was won by … yes, yours truly. This caused much amusement. And a redraw. The second Love Sign was finally, fittingly won by my colleague Dom at Dot Dash, who helped me with Mindfulness 101. Ah, Karma.

 

Love up a wall in the Valley

Love Sign up a wall in the Valley

Out the back at Jamie’s Espresso Bar.

Determined to get hung alongside a real artist, by hook or by crook. (That’s Vernon Ah Kee to the left.)

Lovely old empty frame, crying out for something to fill it. Wonderfully aged and falling apart. We were very careful not to bump. Left behind by AP Signs—a former tenant of the building—Jamie tells me.

Thanks to my very handy mate Felix.
