Mokuhanga Workshop

July 10, 2018

antheaboesenberg

I spent the weekend doing a mokuhanga workshop with the wonderful Ros Kean. In a really packed few days we learned a basic printing technique, and lots of other things, like how to make a carrier brush, how to maintain your cutting tools, and lots of information about pigments and papers.

I really enjoyed the quiet process of making things from the natural materials around the studio, and the ceremony of attending to the tools. Perhaps I won’t pursue Mokuhanga itself, who knows how it will fit into my practice?

Reworking the studio

I’m now sharing the studio with two others, so a pretty radical cleanup has had to take place! I’ll share some photos now, because it’s probably going to be all downhill from here, unless my friends keep me on track.

As my friend Peri said, Entropy will get to this.

However, let me bask in the order and cleanliness for the time being,

‘A place for everything and everything in its place.’

Thank god for IKEA and Bunnings.

Some new work

I’ve been exploring the way the materials behave and thought I’d share with you my latest results. 


This is a wax Monotype on textured paper with ink. Here is a detail from the piece:


The second piece uses the same technique but with slightly different results.


And here is the detail:

Cairns footpath and other textures.

Weekend Workshop at Inkmasters

September 10, 2017

The workshop was so busy I didn’t have time to take any photos! The students were very prolific and some wonderful work was produced.

I will in due course post some photos from others, but  for now, let me show you some work I’ve done myself at the residency. It’s work in progress.

FNQ 

September 4, 2017

antheaboesenberg

Here in FNQ for a residency with Inkmasters and the Tanks. I will pursue my own work, teach a workshop in monotype, do a demonstration in Encaustic for Printmakers and a short workshop for year 10’s at a local college.

Here in Cairns, nature is rampant! I get to go to the Botanical Gardens each day, and walk the boardwalk to the studio. Such a joy!

Back in the studio….

This will be a wonderful exhibition, and I am lucky enough to have been invited to send work from my ‘Text’ series of monotypes. Unfortunately I can’t get there this time. If you are near Haacht, Belgium, please go along.
