Yesterday, I introduced you to plein-air painter, Jane Bennett, working in the heritage bays down at the Australian Technology Park, in the suburb of Eveleigh. Today - and tomorrow - I shall have a crack at showing you what I was trying to get at with the expression 'the body electric'.
This is Chris, one of the artisans from Wrought Artworks, established in 1987 - who converted the old smithy area of the Eveleigh Railway Workshops and now maintain and work it under the aegis of the Australian Technology Park. There aren't many wrought iron foundrys left in Sydney. This one is worth a visit. The relationship with the ATP has not always been plain sailing, but wrinkles seem to have been ironed out. For those who would like to understand more, I have appended a doco about Wrought Artworks.
