FROM THE BEGINNING

From the Beginning presents a new series of intuitive works developed largely from the knowledge, memory and understanding of organic structures, and are based on learned mark-making.  Collagraph plates are constructed with materials from built and manufactured structures, to organic objects.  Each work explores new approaches and relationships with colour application and printing techniques to emphasise layers of texture, tone, and line. The works also introduce new materials, such as stitching, gold leaf, paint, and pencil to create a series of unique state works on paper.

 

From the Beginning offers endless possibilities, observations and questions as we grapple with our sense of place, our curiosity and imagination, our past, our present and the uncertainty of our future.
