I arrived in Leipzig in August and have been working away steadily in my new studio at LIA. The studio is located in Die Spinnerei - an abandoned cotton spinning mill that used to supply a lot of Europe's cotton. The studio is 80 sq m and has been a wonderful space to make big works. I am loosely working on a theme of the Fox and the Goose - you can see some of the imagery below. The 16th and 17th September is the big Rundgang when our studios are open to the public and attract visitors from all over.

The studio is super busy - several exhibitions coming up and I have been working with models and fur.
Aunt Bella and her fur wrap - thanks to Tobi Kahn for the photo and fur!
I am now the owner of Aunt Bella's wrap and this has led to quite a few paintings - Aunt Bella left Europe after losing both her sons to the Holocaust. Her only item of value was this mink wrap.

I have also been working on some paintings with hands and fur - really enjoying these too!
