During my first visit to Quadra Island of this year, I dropped by the extraordinary dwelling of local artist Paul Bishop. One could spend hours with a camera here. For instance, this installation of typewriters is in the centre of the driveway where it loops in front of the house. There are many other interesting things around his place, but I felt a bit self conscious blazing away. He said I could post these pictures, for which I am grateful.
As soon as I saw these typewriters, I was reminded of the barbie doll exhibition in Fairfield, Victoria that I posted about (here) a couple of years ago. That post still gets views, partly because it is barbies, and partly because it is interesting, eccentric (in the literal meaning of the word) and thought provoking too. Paul’s typewriters are all of these things and would likely rest very comfortably under the barbie tree.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I had poor light to photograph them so I had to push the processing a bit, but you will get the idea I think.
