International Biennale of Paper Arts

February 10, 2016

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. 

Further explorations with paper…..

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.

Very time consuming and slow.

New light explorations.

I do love the way light penetrates waxed paper. This is destined to be a lamp, and I’m working to make it completely stable and workable. I burned thousands of holes into the paper over some days. It was quite a meditative process.

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

I just received notification of my acceptance in the North Sydney Art Prize, with work about Entropy. Fantastic! I need to get back to work quickly, so I’m in the studio today exploring some new ideas. Here’s a peek……

Collage

Today I started making some small collages using rusted papers, photographs, wire, safety pins, sandpaper, foil, stitching felt and other bits and pieces – too many to mention.

Interesting to see what develops……I think I need to edit them somewhat.

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.
