planet commonwealth had a delightful visit yesterday from artist gael lambie and her husband jim who is currently exhibiting in sydney.
while discussing their many interests, gael tried on an uzbeck woman’s mantle. traditionally from central asia and embroidered to represent a woman’s status, these ceremonial garments are traditionally worn as a headdress and have vestigial sleeves held together with an embroidered band.
while we loved gael’s outfit of pink jumpsuit, adorned with jewellery in her hair, she somehow became complete with the mantle
look out for gael at the next gallery opening, standing well out from the crowd... come back to sydney soon gael and jim!... we loved meeting you
