Some new work

November 14, 2017

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:

In the studio today.

Just plugging along with the work.

First, a funny spotty lamp which exploits the transparency wax gives to paper.

Exploring luminosity. Not quite where I want to be yet.

Today with Angela in the Studio

January 24, 2014

Angela is in town, so today we made encaustic medium in the studio. I had bought home from New York as a gift for her a swag of different papers, some found, some bought. I also bought her some square silicone ice cube trays. The medium looks sooo good in those nice little cubes! Tomorrow I have promised her a trip to Reverse Garbage (excitement!). She has never been. I’m hoping we find some excellent bits and pieces to make stuff out of.

Today’s explorations.

I am investigating the use of verdigris on paper. Ancient manuscripts used verdigris for colouring illuminations. These papers are stained with tea first, and then with verdigris. I know that verdigris will continue to degrade the paper (as with rust). We will see. I have coated these with wax which may inhibit degradation.

My other investigation this week was the effect of coloured wax on paint colour cards. Lots of potential there for combinations of colour. The cards are from Reverse Garbage in Marrickville.

I’m exploring using light with my waxed works.
This is lit with a yellow light, but I’m intending to use white.

Stitching

August 2, 2013

I have been joining some of my prints with some rather crude stitching. It adds texture to the work, and visually reinforces the presence of the hand.
