Rustmatter. Limited Edition Artist Books

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

Connections and contrasts of imperfections, found in the urban environment, highlighting, insignificant marks, weathered surfaces and cast – offs. I am influenced by abandoned and derelict spaces, vacant industrial sites, structures, old walls & graffiti.One of a kind, handmade ( Limited Edition) artist books from Australian contemporary artist Jenny Davis

Each book consists of:
1 Vintage cigar tin lined with eco- dyed crochet scrap in Shibori- dyed indigo blue, or rust.
1 Handmade concertina artist book, collage with rust – dyed papers and slow stitched with Japanese Shibori threads.
A vintage button with an 1800’s, rusted suspender buckle, winds around the book to close. Some buckles have “Paris” engraved.
1 Scrap piece of rust – dyed canvas cloth, frayed, embellished with slow stitching.
1 Handmade collage created from aged, rust paper, antique suspender buckle and slow stitching.
2 photographs in an acrylic pouch, taken beneath the City of Paris, France.
1 rusted fence loop found in the outback Australia.
(Each artist book is original, handmade and differs from the other. They are all created from the same materials though, making each one, a collectable piece of art)

From This Place. Help Raise the Profiles of Women Artists!

Monday, July 10th, 2017

“We wanted to elevate our fellow women artists, to raise their profile in a world where it is often hard to cut through. One of the most telling statistics we found was that only 5% of artists hanging in permanent galleries worldwide were women. We took this fact and decided to do something about it, and where better to start than in our own beautiful region – on the banks of the Yarra River, in the mountains and forests we all call home?” Lindy Schneider

Lindy, Angela and to all the other artists…You are all such an inspiration and amazing creative women. I feel very privileged to be part of this project.

DESCRIPTION:
” Meet the Tenant” A visual essay shot in Paris by Australian Artist Jenny Davis. This is not your usual “cliché” view of Paris. ” What lurks under the City of Paris……..

I am fascinated by the beauty in the unseen the contained and murky, sometimes thought of as dirty and ugly “Meet the Tenant” started in Paris 2007  after I ventured into the dungeon area, under a Paris apartment. I could feel past lives lurking within it’s damp walls and eerie narrow chambers of numbered red doors. I spent many days down there alone, soaking in the atmosphere of the space, in order to connect to some sort of creative energy. Eventually, it took off in all directions.

This book will be very limited in it’s print run
