Simryn Gill .... Dalam

I met Simryn Gill at the Singapore Biennale 2006 and I was really emotional after that meeting. Other than being one of my favourite artists, she is probably the one I find most inspirational because of her work ethic, and I feel an affinity with her life and career - born in Singapore, lives in Sydney, returns to Port Dickson . She told me that if she could become an artist, anyone can. I'm going to remember her advice and be one of the 'anyones'. She's represented by Roslyn Oxley9 in Sydney; I'm scheming how ($$, logistics) and when (what colourful excuses can I use to make another trip to Sydney??) to buy a work of hers. I've been thinking about it for too long.... its time to find that excuse.
