Wear Me Out One Last Time

A number of collectors and friends have rallied to help me to set up a new enamel studio in Brisbane, donating small artworks and rare gallery merchandise to cover the costs of rent and materials. Former assistants from my Palm Beach studio have volunteered to join me for a month to ready the space while I construct essential timber frames at Graham Reynolds factory, nearby.
Over the next few days, the new studio will be offering available pieces here.
The first are simple t-shirts I designed to promote my 2008 exhibition of photography, PORNO, at MARS Gallery, in Melbourne. They have since been spotted as far afield as Los Angeles, Tucson, Tokyo, and Chiangmai, Thailand, but the seven offered here – one extra large, four large, and two medium – are the last of the 100 originally produced.
Manufactured in Mexico using US-grown 100% heavyweight cotton, the t-shirts were custom-printed by Super Special Screen Printing. Each is in the original, unopened, opaque black cling film packaging by Dooney Studio, which also contains an unsigned postcard from the exhibition. The package is signed by Hazel Dooney herself – in either silver posca paint pen on Dooney pink adhesive vinyl or black marker on reflective silver adhesive vinyl – and stamped 'DOONEY'.
The price each, regardless of size, is $A75 ($US70 approx.), plus delivery. Payments accepted by bank transfer or Paypal. For further information or to order, please email my studio.
