Working with Textiles. Textile Collage & Drawing.

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

I am a visual artist who works with a range of mediums and my process varies.

 

 

I use which ever vehicle helps me to express my ideas. Each work informs the other and leads onto the next idea.

 

 

The collages I’m working on at the moment are a follow on from my hand sewn fabric pieces and with more experiments I can see 3d objects creeping in

 

 

 

 

” No Yes” Book.

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Today I made my first ever limited edition artist books. The past few weeks I’ve been working with Queensland artist, Jack Oudyn  creating, 2 original artist books. We sent the original books across the country many times in the post, from Victoria to QLD, so we could both add our marks.

"No Yes" Book Side 1

“No Yes” Book 1/3

 

It has been a challenge to get the maths right with the edition. They are far from perfect and I lost a few marks in the process, which, I think only adds to their charm and it’s been a lot of fun, learning from mistakes made along the way.

Each little “No Yes” book measures W4 x H5 x L40cm. made from 160gsm. goatskin parchment paper in cream.

The original “No Yes” book below is now finished after 2 collaborative swaps with Australian artist Jack Oudyn

Please see previous post on “Collaborative Art”

1st swap with my marks only

 

2nd swap with Jacks marks and we both decided it was finished!

 

It has an oriental feel to it.

Coming up soon, the other finished artist book!

We mostly think of artists working alone in a studio to produce works of art but, artists have also been working collaboratively, in groups and partnerships for centuries, even in the Renaissance. Now with technology, it’s even easier to connect and work with other creative people.

Lately, I have been working on a collaborative arts project with Australian artist Jack Oudyn using a couple of little handmade books I created .

 

 

 

The books are sent by snail- mail back and forth to each other. We then, work on each page, the reverse sides or, add to each others marks and collage, until we are both satisfied with the piece.

We will then, colour photocopy the book and both have a copy, or keep an original each.

After 2 collaborative swaps the book below is still a work in progress. Today, I created more marks and will send it off  to Jack, for more additions or thoughts on the project.

 

I find it lots of fun and liberating working in this way, as well as, a bit scary. You never know if you will connect with each others mark- making and make the piece, work for both artists.
