Having more than too much fun with these.
A million years ago I was a 'traditional' painter before I went all collage & sculpture crazy! For a very long time I also worked in pastel. I don't want to really go back but I'm enjoying recreating the feel of those works with my love of collage and recycling. A little nostalgic trip that comforts yet overlayed with my new experiences and passions. Everything, YES including the canvases and paint, is recycled. My pallet was therefore limited but it was a challenge I found very rewarding. There are layers of papers and textiles. Again, all found treasures.
I am showing a few of these explorations this week at the Opening of "Where Land Meets Sea" at Yindela. Thursday 7 - 9pm 2 Yindela Street, Davidson. Pete Christie is showing his work at this event . All welcome for a glass of wine and mingle. I am donating a piece of artwork which will be available via silent auction in support of the Manly Community Centers' initiatives.
Where Land Meets Sea... I'm a little literal, I chose the beaches but they are my beaches, the way I see them. What is beneath the people, the boats, the business of beach.
