The day isn’t what it used to be by Bella Knemeyer

Breakfast at Sister Artist in Residence

Dimensions: 83cm x 110cm

Medium: Mulched paper and music sheet on cotton board

Framed in kiaat wood floater frame with block mount

The series for Breakfast began with a discarded box of sheet music belonging to a deceased school teacher. In his absence, these monotone landscapes resurface what has been left unsung, registering an echo through line-work across landscapes evocative of first light and the dawn chorus.


“I like breakfast for the benevolent way it lets you stall beginning the day.”
