I have been VERY busy this week continuing work on sketches and application for a SALA exhibition hopefully at Gallery One in Mitcham and creating new products for the markets. Sorry the blog is a little late.
The images from this week I explored printed materials, my own drawings and the different art on my grandparents walls.
I love 213 which was some trees in a magazine to me the cranes almost do look like they are flying through the trees. 217 and 218 are two of the pictures from my grandparents wall, the first an etching of a sailing boat and the second a needlepoint work created by my grandma.
In Wooden Cranes (223) the cranes have a wooden pattern on them and are sitting in a wooden bookshelf made by my grandparents. 225. Is the inside of my glove box and the cranes if you look closely are made from one of the maps from that glove box. I really like this image. I think it is the simplicity of the layout coupled with the texture of the map on the cranes and the texture of the black box and the texture of the aqua box contrasting with the circular stud.
Aztec Clear tails (230) is called this because they are made from the window of an envelop and the pattern on the inside of the envelop has an Aztec feel to it.
Events for the rest of April are:
Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th is Meadows Country Fair
Sunday 27th I will be at Marion Markets on Oaklands
Also this month The Flagstaff Hill Rotary Art Exhibition is now open until the 26th closing at 3pm. In which I have 3 works please get down there and vote for me for peoples' choice. I need all the help I can get. There is a lot of amazing pieces to see.
But until next week may all your cups be delicious and all your cranes fly free. Make sure you register your email if you found a little bit of luck (a crane) or would like to attend the exhibition in approx 1 years time. Register here.
If you have found one of these cranes please keep it for approximately one year, register your email address HERE and I will send you an invite to the opening night of the exhibition. In which I will ask you to bring the crane back so it can be placed into an artwork at the exhibition.
