A couple of weeks ago, a group of local artists held 'open studios' on two consecutive weekends. The project was reasonably sucessful for our first attempt, but next time we will need to do more advertising and link it up with other arts activities in the area. However, I enjoyed the opportunity to tidy and sort out my studio and to re visit some of my older art works. This is some of what I unearthed:
Ink, paint on paper, app 40cm x 60cm [frame]
ink, dyed paper fibres, copper wire, app. 5cm x 5 cm [image]
ink, gouache, gold foil, app 5cm x 5cm [image]
ink, water colour pencil, app 8cm x 12cm [image]
recycled cotton fabric, tea dyed & stitched, gold foil, app 30cm x 30cm
detail of "Sedimentary"
recycled cotton fabrics, painted, stitched & dyed, app 80cm x 65cm
"Growing Old Gracefully"
recycled paper pulp, iron rust paint, dyed cotton & silk wrapped sticks, 95cm x 45cm
Acrylics, collaged paper & gold foils, 95cm x 45cm
This was my lovely tidy studio for 10 days.
