New Point Of Reference

The Station Gallery, Yarragon

Every corner is a new Perspective.

These artworks are not in response to the Pandemic, but to the quiet time it produced, the calm of life’s demands slowing. I looked at past work and created new works. I pushed beyond my normal ‘stopping point’ to discover more, to see more. I still enjoy the quick mark, but this was about slowing down and the layering of moments.

Reflecting.
Book of moments.
Now. my points of reference
This is late. Empathy
O.Gosh. I'm dizzy.

There once were marks that became symbols that became words , which are now moving back to symbols, marks. Is that progress?

This body of work moves away from paper and traditional pens, back to marks, wood, skins, fibre.

Using my calligraphic experience I am drawing from the past, thrusting into the present. Can, brushes, feathers, paint on MDF, on silk, or cottons will be melded together by letters.

Simplicity of mark, overlaid with tradition and my love of all letterforms, makes this a very unusual experience

INK TALKS

Ink Talks Exhibition

Brunswick Street Gallery 322 Brunswick St, Fitzroy www.brunswickstreetgallery.com.au

exhib. inktalks Looking forwards, looking backwards

This exhibition, INK TALKS, has examples of these early writing implements and poses the question: is hand writing relevant today or is it now an art-form?

Lettering is my passion, and a workshop in Venice my love of Ink, Pen and Brush combined.

The infinite possibilities of these three. The smell of the ink as it hits the paper, the gleam as it is spread with the brush, the sound of the pen dancing with the ink across the white paper.
