Sometimes I feel certain about what I am about to embark upon the moment I pick up a brush. At other times I must allow myself to surrender to my doubts in the hope that eventually I am asking the right questions of myself. It can be a risky high-wire walk.
So, Funny hahas and bloody galahs is about a collective loss, an inability to hold onto joy without the constant clicking, tapping and swiping. It’s about falling for the snake charmer’s music and the panacea of a modern medicine man’s magic all dressed up with the jingles and flashy cuts of the sale frenzy.
