Anthea Boesenberg, Order and Chaos 1,2 & 3, woodcut monoprints, 78cm x 61cm, 2019

Sitting at the gallery invigilating (but not being particularly vigilant), it’s very satisfying to look at the work produced by my colleagues Anna Russell and Rhonda Nelson and I, and ceramicist Felicity Hall, over the course of almost a year.

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:

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!

In the studio today.

Just plugging along with the work.

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

Jenny Sages Workshop.

February 12, 2015

I recently attended a workshop at Bangalow with Jenny Sages. it was an opportunity to learn how Jenny does her wonderful works. It seems that those huge portraits are painted in oils on a wax ground, so they are not really encaustic paintings. The wax ground gives the paint a beautiful luminosity, and a kind of warmth to the skin tones which would be very difficult to achieve in any other way.

Here are some images from the workshop.

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

In Situ, Mosman

September 17, 2013

antheaboesenberg

My little houses have been selected for In Situ, Mosman.  They are destined to be displayed in the window of Vernon Partners, 836 Military Road, which is quite appropriate, since Vernon Partners is a property agent.

However, you don’t need a mortgage to buy one of my houses!  The exhibition will be open from the 5th of October till the 20th October.

Some houses: Memories, Dreams, Reflections.

Two new works that grew out of my experiments with monotype. This time I have used rusted paper, combining accidental and deliberative marks.

Some three dimensional forms.

I’ve been playing with making some small three dimensional forms. This first one is quite organic.

Three dimensional organic form. Polymer intaglio print, encaustic medium, twine.

While this one is rather more colourful.
