I have a great story for you. Do you recognize this handsome Australian? @glenclarkecosmologies....well
22 years ago I was cycling around Vietnam when I stumbled upon a sculpture symposium. Glen was working away on his piece and stopped graciously to chat to me about art. I was a chef at the time and totally amazed that anyone could make their living from art, let alone get invited to work and exhibit abroad. Glen was the first professional artist I ever met. Photo taken and neatly stored in my old album. Fast forward to 2016. I'm exhibiting at the @affordableartfairhk
, Hong Kong
And my neighbor is a really friendly sculptur from Australia. We chat, swap Instagrams and go out separate ways. Then last week I see a post, I see a style I recognize. It sparks a memory, I wonder, what are the chances? It's TRUE. Glen and I had met one random afternoon two decades ago. He was instrumental in my belief that I could have the life meant for me. And what better confirmation than to exhibit unknowingly next to the very same person 22 years later.
No coincidence right?
