Devotion drawings

These drawings are a suite of images drawn from photographs taken by Ann Shelton in the 1990’s of the queer Devotion parties in Wellington. Big, extravagant dance parties, when space was still cheap! I’m inspired by the home made costumes, full sized horse carousel, and the big reminder that dancing and celebrating are an essential part of our shared culture. These pieces are available from the studio, and I will donate 20% of sales to Outerspaces – Te Kete o Te Kahui- the umbrella group for Naming NZ, School’s Out, and Tranzform.
