Thanks to all the lovely folk at The Art Vault.
This is an article in Garland Magazine about me. It was published last year after my last solo show, ‘Journeys.’ Garland is an online art magazine which has interesting articles – well worth subscribing to!
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:
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!
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.
I have work in this exhibition, and would love to see you at the opening.
I’ve been away for 5 weeks in Europe, but back on deck now, if a little cabbage headed from jet lag…….
Id like to invite you to the Greenwich Village Arts Trail next weekend, the 10th and 11th of October. My studio, at 29B Innes Road, will be open from 10am till 4pm, just one of seventeen studios in Greenwich which will be open at the weekend. Please call in for a drink and a chat.
Lucent is open each day until next Monday 10am till 4 pm. I’m enjoying gallery sitting here at the Incinerator. it’s very interesting learning how people interact with the show. Except for a couple of dark and rainy days last week, there’s been a steady stream of visitors. I’ve particularly enjoyed that children come in alone, then drag their parents downstairs to see the show later.
A young boy just visited and said ‘I never knew art could be so interesting. This is a first for me.’ It’s made my day!
(We also had a discussion about the prism and the nature of light.)
