"The Message Stick of Humanity Clings to the Underbelly of the Rainbow Serpent as it Continues Its Infinite Journey" (or "Wot? Me Worry?") is small in its physical size, but Infinite in its spiritual footprint. I was considering calling this "A Message of Hope From the Australian Dreamtime", but that scope is too limiting. Slightly reminiscent of Terry Pratchett's Diskworld, borne in the backs of four Elephants, who, in turn, ride through the Universe upon the back of a great space Turtle... And if you thought the critique from my exhibition in Boonah last year ("Doug Wakefield is the sperm of the Devil."), was close to the truth, be prepared for improvement!!! As an artist friend (Brian Che) once succinctly stated: "Ruth is stranger than Richard."
