Its been a long time since I’ve posted, but its because I’ve been super busy, both inside the studio and outside. I’m working towards an exhibition with my friend Peri at The Incinerator Artspace……..I’ll post details soon. And I’ve recently had my dear friends Daniella Woolf and Kim Tyler staying with me and teaching workshops in encaustic.
However, having long been an admirer of Shona Wilson’s work, I leapt at the chance to do a one day workshop with her at the Coal Loader in Waverton. This is an old industrial complex set at the edge of bushland and the harbour which has been repurposed as a centre for sustainability. Well worth a visit!
Here are my efforts:
A small pod like structure made from twisted vine, dried flowers, and shards of bark.
A rock shelf with its crevices filled with soft textured material, and bars made of twigs. I went back the next day to show a friend, and this was still standing, despite some strong winds.
A rusted man made pond filled with brightly coloured torn leaves and dried seed pods.
