undercurrents underway

Grabbed a few hours in the studio this week and started to work on my pieces for an up-coming exhibition - "Undercurrents". Artists Tricia Smout, Flecity Clarke and myself are having a collaborative exhibition. The exhibition will be at the Arts Factory, South Brisbane 8th - 13th September 2011. Painted a few pieces of fabric mostly using the mono-printing method. Also sketched a couple of birds and flowers, scanned them into the computer, altered the sizes etc and then printed (using the inkjet printer) the images directly onto both plain and painted fabric. The pieces will now be collaged and then quilted.

just black, just white

If it made a black or white mark then it could be used. Inspired by the blocking out and filling in exercise featured in Steven Aimone's book Expressive Drawing. White and Black acrylic paint and charcoal were the starting materials and as the paintings evolved black permanent pen and white chalk pens were introduced. Totally enjoyed the process and working with this style, the three images are available as prints through redbubble.
