Affordable Art. Framed Art. Art Prints.

Monday, February 19th, 2018

Ever wished you could buy that original piece of art but it was just too expensive and out of reach?  I know I have.

Have you ever considered prints of your favourite originals?

Especially now, most of us are adjusting to life on tighter budgets. Even if you can’t afford an original piece of art, purchasing prints can be more affordable and if the original artwork is sold, there may be prints available. It not only brings art into your home but, it also supports the artist community too.Clear

Fragments. An old chair. Inspiration for new work.

Wednesday, February 7th, 2018

As a small child I pulled things apart. Even, before I could talk, I ripped apart dolls and toys. I used to make little displays, installations of the fragments and other discarded things. Today I still pull things apart. I find fragments more pleasing and sometimes, even more interesting than the original object.

 

 

Recently, I pulled apart an old chair that had been hanging around for years. The wood was still good. The cloth and leather had grit and rust, just perfect for sculpture. The rustic bits and pieces also related to some textile fragments, I unpicked from an 1800’s, quilt topper. I’m still working on outcomes and painting has crept in too. Below are some pics of the process.

 

 

 

 

 

Happy New Year ! New Work. New Exhibition.

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

After, a much needed break it’s back to work for 2018. I’m getting all geared up for my next solo exhibition, in April. I’m just waiting on a paint delivery and sorting out the studio, before I start the new work.

During my break, I worked on my website and listed more paintings in my Gallery.

I will also be adding more paintings, mixed media and textile pieces shortly.

The Power of an Object. Identity through Object.

Sunday, November 12th, 2017

One of my life- time interests is collecting vintage, antique and found objects. I believe, through objects, stories can be told, and through imagination, new ones found.

Objects and their stories, often inspire my art making too. I deconstruct items for sculpture. Old clothing and antique quilts, are often used in textile pieces, artist books and collage. Aged  surfaces and patinas of collections, make their way into my abstract paintings, too.

 

 

Lately, I have been asking myself a few questions about, collecting and identity. Especially after the passing of my step father a few years ago, when I had the huge task, of cleaning out his house and shed. Overwhelming at times, the hoard, has found it’s way into my life & studio

 

 

Having only known him for a short time, (5yrs) I’ve discovered, through his belongings and objects, a hidden or, new identity.

 

 

Strangely , I now find myself imagining, a new “make believe identity” through the objects he hoarded

 

 

This has lead me to many questions…

When alive, do we really know a person? and can things and objects help us to see, a new, or different identity?

Through objects and belongings, can we feel connected to that person?

Can objects change, how we see others & ourselves?

 

 

 

 

 

The Life of a Painting. Changing Back to Oil Paints.

Sunday, November 5th, 2017

A few years ago, I changed from oil paints, to acrylics, after I became allergic to the turps. I’m still not used to painting with acrylics as, I just love the lushness, depth and movement of oil paints. Something, I haven’t been able to achieve with acrylics. So, recently I bought some oil painting supplies, eco friendly turps, to see, if I’m still allergic to it.

Sometimes I think, I should stop earlier, when its fresh and spontaneous, but usually keep going. I  just have to trust the process and know, that eventually, I will end up with something I’m happy with.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I will revisit the painting, in a few days time to decide, whether I will take it further. At the moment, I’m feeling, times long past.

The Old School House & Friends.

Thursday, September 7th, 2017

For the past decade or so, I have worked with an amazing group of women artists at the old schoolhouse in Badger Crk. Victoria. We meet up weekly to paint, throw around ideas, experiment and play with new, unusual, materials and techniques. This time is invaluable to me, as it, gives me a break from the usual, business side of making art and gets me out of the studio. We chat about our work, share ideas and discuss what’s happening in the world and our lives. Mostly,  it’s just a whole lot of fun, mucking around with good friends who happen to love making art.

 

Lately at the schoolhouse I have been working on some mixed media pieces with paint paper, cloth and thread.

 

I use thread and needle to make marks through the artwork.

 

Each stitch leads onto the next, weaving over the painting.

 

Found papers intermingle with rotted and rusted cloth.

 

I like to use off- cuts of textile, paper and patterns and throw it against slabs of paint and marks.

 

In the above artwork I am enjoying the contrast of the piece of vintage cross stitch, I found in an op shop once.

 

I just let the stitches wander around and find their own place in their own time. I’m not in control and use the thread, as another tool to make marks.

 

I don want to make embroidery’s and my mistakes can be my jewels.

 

All these artworks are in progress and not yet finished. Some may just be experiments for fun and to learn from.

 

 

 

 

Art Blog Diaries. Reminiscing & Evolving as an Artist.

Saturday, May 13th, 2017

I started this blog back in the early 2000’s as a sort of diary, to document my work and creative life and to give something back to others.

 

 

Going through some of my old posts recently, I was able to pin point, some pivotal moments in my life, of where my ideas and artworks originally came from, why my work and arts practice has changed and how, it’s evolved over the years, to where it is today.

 

 

 

After visits to Europe, UK and an arts residency in Spain, in 2005, I especially noticed some changes in the way I was working. Though I have always worked between disciplines, painting was always my main form of expression. I was becoming more dissatisfied with just painting and found it hard to do any creative work for awhile. Then, after a 3 month stay in France 2007, I realized I could no longer, only use paint, to express my ideas.

 

 

 

 

This led to a series of experimental installations, videos and a book of photographs. Touched by Dada and Surrealist ideas, I had to re-access what I was doing as an artist.

 

 

 

 

 

The installation and video below “Parisgrit” was shown at Tilt Gallery, in Melbourne in 2006. I can see quite a few interesting elements in it, but it’s way too long and very noisy. Maybe someday, I will get around to re-working it and revamping it into something else.

 

 

 

 

 

By looking back over my old blog posts or (diary entries) I find it helpful, to reflect on the areas, where I can make improvements and expand on previous ideas. I can also see where, my ideas have come from. I get a glimpse of how & why, my artwork, techniques and materials have changed over time and maybe where I could be heading in my arts practice.
