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:

I’m really enjoying the contemplative process of making these works. This one combines burnt paper with a print taken in ink from that paper, and some coloured pencil. However, soon I’ll be seeing holes in my sleep!

I’m also working with the heavily rusted, torn and stitched paper I made last year,  forming large pieces into smaller draped and folded forms. Why stick to two dimensions when three is so interesting?

They reminded me of red earth cliffs one might see as one approaches land from the sea, so I’ve called them Landfall 1 and 2. These pieces will be exhibited at Artsite Gallery in March this year.

New Work in Progress.

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

Black and White: first day of Paula’s workshop

February 23, 2013

Yesterday was the first day of Paula’s workshop. We began by making long scroll forms using brush and ink. Firstly we followed our breath, and then we used our gloved hands to work on the surface. iIt was a very direct and intimate way of making marks on the surface of the paper.
Here is my breath piece:

And here are some of our scrolls hanging together:

My scroll made by directly drawing on the paper with my hands is on the extreme right, next to the breath scroll.

Later we may add colour to this work, or cut it up for a book. We also made smaller pieces, exploring the variety of marks we could make.

This is a desert environment. Here are some photos of desert plants:
