Ooh, ahh – Megsie waxing lyrical about her favourite hipster! This Saturday arvo at CMAG.

How could you not but be charmed by the brilliant George Brandis Live Art Experience putsch? What a cracker.
Hard to pick a fave image (so many to choose from) but Sir Galahad Poo, naturally, gravitates to Walter Kenyon’s Gilbert and George makeover…
But for all the hilarity, this is deadly serious biz. Get onboard the George Brandis Live Art Experience facebook here.
Here at the Hideout we’re thrilled to share the news of the civil elevation of our dear Poo in yesterday’s Australia Day honours list!!
He’s been made Lord Warden of the Sink Portables – and those of you wishing to observe protocol are advised to accord him all the appropriate courtesies and address him henceforth as Sir Poo, Lord Warden of the Sink Portables, OM (Knight of the Ordure of the Mire.)
We gave him a suitable toasting, as one would expect…
…and Minnie has promised to make him a garter.
It was certainly a most unexpected turn of events in what had been a traditionally conventional Wyndham Oz Day long weekend; beach, relaxed house-guests and the requisite cocktail-o-rhumba…
We’d had such a lovely few days in the lead up – mooching with Dira and La Groppa (who has maintained that idiosyncratic refusal to be photographed, long before Sia even thought of it) – and so we’re happy to report that the Poo didn’t spoil the mood by insisting on any sudden and uncharacteristic formality.
“Just call me Poo” he declared in the approved manner of the classic, self-effacing Aussie. And so we shall.
[Ps: thanks for the Tatt, Jacq – our fave treat. n(Ed)]
Poetry in motion – four caged pearls: one silver, two peacock and one (very yummy) chocolate…
Ginger’s work is strictly limited edition and each of these finished caged pearls [925 silver/South Sea (Balinese) pearl] are priced at AU$700ea. (See other examples of her work on the Admissible Evidence page.)
Here at Prisoners of the Crown all work is designed and crafted in situ – we do not run a cheap factory production line and we have no truck whatsoever with cheap imported materials and/or fixings. Additional elements, such as the pearls, are sourced and selected by us personally – ah, the joys of travel!
We are similarly eccentric in our trading arrangements; we prefer to deal directly with prospective clients as opposed to using the impersonal internet/paypal option. We have too much respect for the work to allow it to be casually tossed into a virtual shopping cart like some piece of mass-produced tat. In this we are unapologetically ‘atelier’ by nature.
So if you fancy one of the four caged pearls (above), then please email us at email@example.com to kick-start the conversation. We love a chat.
Alternatively, for those of you who already have a pearl, perhaps as a treasured keepsake from a beloved relative – and rather like the idea of caging it for a more intimately enhanced posterity – the cost is AU$450. Again, please contact us to discuss.

We’ve been checking out Paul Sutton’s new work at jas hugonnet gallery (go here)…
Very cool. This is our fave…

But perhaps even more exciting is the news that Jas has recently been appointed Executive Director of M16 (in Canberra.) What a ripper – he’ll be fabulous!
