Angela Swann’s response to Waiata Dawn Davies’ poem Singing at Sunrise. This work has been in the front window of the Gallery for the last ten days and has attracted a lot of attention.
I feel as though there should be some chalk dust on the Gallery floor! When I collected this artwork from Pamela I was immediately taken back to my primary school class room where the world map was stored rolled up above the blackboard. There was always a very chalky smell and an explosion of chalk dust as it was unfurled over the blackboard.
