I’M NOT sure what I was expecting when I met Kerry Spokes. Only recently introduced to the world of art, I had been taken to the Gippsland 14 exhibition where I saw her work displayed and I wanted more. I loved the, what were to me, quirky representations of the world around us. I tried to find meaning in the miniature-sized sheep in the kitchen with a set of barber scissors sitting on a chair above them. Were the sheep to be shorn and ultimately end up on our dinner plate? Then I thought – “Don’t be silly – just have fun.” And I did.
