Lucky number 4

If you're Chinese, the luckiest number is 8 because it sounds similar to the word 'prosper' or 'fortune' which means a lot of people want to live at number 8 or have 8 in their phone numbers and licence plates.  If you place 8 on its side it also resembles the infinity sign.  Meanwhile number 4 is considered a negative number (apparently it sounds like the word 'death' in Chinese!) however for me it has always been a lucky number in many different ways.

So with that in mind, I wanted to let you know about a new exhibition called 'Fourfold' featuring the work of four female print makers which starts on Wednesday 18 April at The Light Factory Gallery in Eltham.  I particularly like the more graphic style of Violeta Capovska and Kate Hudson - Hudson's work also reminds me a little of the work of Australian modernist artist Margaret Preston.
