12. Beloved Of The Ibis God

The god Djehuti afforded me great blessings in 2021 and this painting tells the tale.

The Pullman Hotel featured here is not the one on Kings Way in Melbourne but in fact, the Adelaide branch where I spent 2 weeks of mandatory quarantine. I was one of the very few that got permission to leave the never-ending lockdowns of Melbourne to cross the South Australian border.

A series of misdemeanors occurred at the hotel that coincided with my stay that makes for very interesting stories. Ask me about them.

The images of me with the ibis signs are from photographs taken by Kitten out front of the NGV. Artist Julian Opie was cool with me painting his installations into this piece.

The shrine from which Djehuti emerges is based on the Shrine Of Remembrance in Adelaide.

Beloved Of The Ibis God was also exhibited at Bayside Gallery's Bayside Local exhibition November 2023 - February 2024.
