Weather Watch, 2008

Another antipodean piece. I am close to my sister, and when she first landed in New Zealand in 2000 we started to write about our weather in a brief paragraph. It made me feel a little closer to her while she was so far away. We have eight years of daily weather! The piece shown here represents 2008 in a visual way. I painted small pieces of canvas in a graphic style to represent the words of our descriptions. 365 days worth, for each antipode were mounted on to a frame and here is the result. I was amazed to see the difference in colour. Guess which is England.
