After Dark My Sweet

February 8, 2015 § Leave a comment

His gentle caress brushed upon my cheek and so did the sun below the mountain peak. “When do I see you again my love?” and he answered, “After dark my sweet.” My every movement through the day was exercised with passion’s touch. To wait for dark seemed all enough.
After Dark, my sweet kissed me. We spent the night, the three of us (with him, with me and the beast).
“When my love?” I asked eagerly and he answered,
“After dark my sweet.”
Who is day if I am night? Am I kept in dark to be kept from sight? A vulture’s smile was what I saw when he assured me that he did in fact adore me.

Walking onto morning’s edge I felt a shadow lift from my feet; until he turned around and said, “After dark my sweet.”

Darkness came of course, as it did. We spent the night the three of us (with him, with me and the light). “May I see day my love?” and his answer came, “After dark my sweet”

After dark, my sweet was wrapped up in linen sheets. I had told him, “I am mourning for the morning.” and this time when he turned his head, it was different, what he said,
“Light glows brightest in the dark and you, My-Sweet, are the darkest bread of dark.”
His judgment’s taste was to my disgrace and I felt vengeance bite in passion’s place. I demanded us to meet and stay met and he turned his head and said, “After dark my sweet”.
So I did what any lover would do, to honor the words of my lover as true. An eclipse was made to keep the light away. He would never set foot into the light of day. Even if he caught fire from its avid rays his soul will remain in the darkest shadow, darkened with the overcast of my own shadow. My bitter-sweet, who is mine now to forever keep.

Peeping Tom

January 6, 2015 § 5 Comments

Miss me? Peter and I have been building our port folio of our work together for a Melbourne exhibition. Hopefully, the pictures that are already released lure your curiosity into coming to see the rest of exhibition.

I’m not sure if it is to anybody else’s humor but I found a peeping Tom in the park when we were shooting on the park bench. It was like playing the game, “Where’s Waldo” but Waldo is perverted. I watched as he hid uncomfortably behind bushes and crawled through terrace as a solider would in marsh. I was a little impressed in his efforts I have to say, especially for somebody who looked like an older gentleman.

When Peter and I started to pack up I heard the Waldo carelessly drop from the tree and scamper off somewhere, tripping a few times on the way.

The Assembly of Character

Writer, Emily Steckly and I have started work one of her next pieces. She is working on a literary portrait based on me. I am very excited though at the same time a little anxious. Having somebody paint or write about you is always a little dwelling because you see how another person views you and which aspects of ‘you’ most stand out.

Emily Steckly's Literary Portrait

Two days after the closing night of ‘Noises Off’ I traveled abroad to Europe and will be based here over the next few weeks. Before leaving Peter Coulson and I started on the first photograph of our next series and though the photograph has been released it is still unfinished.

Working with Yervant Zanazanian for Canon

May 21, 2014 § Leave a comment

Yesterday I worked with photographer Yervant Zanazanian for Canon and his wife Anie Zanazanian who designed the beautiful dresses I modelled. I worked beside the lovely gentleman Reese and met the model Teisha who also works with Vicious Models.

In June I will be performing in the play Noises Off as Brooke and Vickie (June 12th-July 21st). If you are interested in tickets the details are in “Current and Upcoming Performances”.

Immediately after the show closes I will be flying to Europe for three weeks where I will visit Sweden and Germany. I will be visiting a good friend of mine who is a terrific artist. Maybe some of you remember the beautiful painting Luke Kopycinski did of me?

Kimothy Camilleri and I are starting to take pictures together again. There are a few art ideas we want to explore together. She is one of the few photographers that I know who has the ability to transfer both her and her model’s desires in  the one picture.

Noises Off

February 27, 2014 § Leave a comment

Unfortunately because of the rioting in the Ukraine Peter and I had to postpone our travels for the exhibition. It isn’t all horrible news though because when we do eventually travel we will be able to add Paris to the list!

I am also very excited to say I was cast as, Brook in the comedy, Noises Of  By Michael Frayn. There is a small chance it may also have to be put on later on in the year because of some complications, but regardless I am excited! If the play is able to go on sooner it should be put on in April sometime.

On April 5th I will also be performing at KADO : The Lost Island of Lesbos.

Europe

On the 27th of February Peter and I will be travelling to the Ukraine for one of his exhibitions. After Ukraine we will be staying in London to do a few photo shoots. I am interested in finding some locations in both countries for Peter and I to shoot in. I would love anybody’s recommendations.

I am also working on a film with Billy-Minshull Gardner and Pete Grayson which will be shot between the 20th-22nd of February in time for my travels.

Below are two photographs taken by Peter Coulson. The painting is an art piece by Nathalie Rattner based on a photograph Jessica Eisner took of me. She is a talented artist who resides in both California and Canada.
