Chaos and Order at the Incinerator Art Space, Willoughby

 

 

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:

FNQ 

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!

Encaustic and rust monotypes

Here’s some more new experiments with rust, wax, tea and ink. I’m enjoying not feeling constrained by paper size and shape. Whether these eventually end up as mounted and framed work is beside the point. I’m learning more about the way these materials behave with every mark I make.
