Visiting Granny

 

 

 

This is the first of some planned mixed media works focussing on linocut which will celebrate Grannys as the keepers of our collective memory.

“Granny’s vase” is my first of the series.

This project continues to combine my cultural heritage interests with printmaking of various forms.

It is also an example of my current experimentation with adding stencil work by hand to the single linocut pull in oils. A big saving on the time it takes to prepare and use masks.

This gives a more painterly effect but moves the work into the realm of “Unique State” as far as printmaking is concerned in much the same way as hand-painting linocuts does, because the works are not completely accurate replications and therefore not editioned.

U/S is conventionally marked 1/1 these days.

Congratulations Peace of Green Gallery 25th Anniversary.

See the Silver Celebration Window at Peace of Green Gallery Maleny for April

Some of my contributions are:

             -“Bryozoan” 1 and 2 in black and silver oil linocut prints –

depicting small, precious sea creatures that are currently in danger through their exposure in

our rapidly diminishing local reef environments in coastal Queensland, Australia.

 

Also look out for my “Forest Armour” – silver leaf assemblage on display nearby.

Homage to Herculaneum

Homage to Herculaneum Exhibition 

I had a lot of fun experimenting with printmaking techniques to achieve the Fresco “look” I wanted. Most pieces are a combination of processes. The Artist Statement follows:

Homage to Herculaneum is inspired by a recent visit to the frescos of Herculaneum, some of which remain intact.

For Roman architect, Vitruvius, the only way to appreciate artistic excellence in his day was ‘by the use of colours and the brave show they make.’ The fresco artists of Roman days were inspired by nature and the world in which they lived in the same way that artists today respond to their environment. They explored and represented their world using materials at hand and techniques developed to represent their ideas.

This work responds to and represents the “brave show” that artists of the time made with the pigments and techniques available to them.

The above works and more are available framed or unframed at Peace of Green Gallery Maple Street Maleny or by contacting Dorothy.
