Some new work

November 14, 2017

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:

In the studio today.

Just plugging along with the work.

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

Next, an encaustic collage on paper.

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……

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.

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

Today I experimented with bleach on coloured paper, and using wax as a resist.

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.
