Just returned from a long weekend in Hanoi. Stayed at The Artists Hotel, next to the Cinematheque.
Memories of Hanoi's Long Bien Bridge on fabric

As you can see, I finished off several pieces - here's a taste just for you. They're stretched on steel and Vietnamese bamboo: with metal structures above, humanity at the center, and the earth supporting it all, I thought of the living bridge that spans this busy city. It has a huge personality: what history it's witnessed, from its inception by Eiffel over a century ago, to the present.
Also managed to revisit some friends, then dropped the artwork off for Maison des Arts just before leaving.
