Earthscape Group

Mixed Media on 4- 5x7 stretched canvases.
[rice papers, acrylic, inks, metallic powders, collage]
I did set out to create 4 works that could work together as a group or on their own... but I didn't set out to have them all sort of line up... a funny sort of synchronicity appeared when I went to take the photos!


Lost in Translation Group

Mixed Media on 4- 3.5x3.5 wood blocks.
[acrylic, fibres, granular paste, texture medium, glass paint over asian text.]
Lost in Translation is an ongoing series focused on foreign and ancient text and symbols. Some of the script shows through in places and is lost in other areas, just as the subtle aspects of meaning and connotation are obscured through the process of translation and the passage of time.

New Journals

I wanted to try making a really large journal. So this one is 9x12 and holds ledger size paper [11 1/2x17 so 8 1/2x 11 1/2 folded]. Maybe no one will want it and I'll get to keep it...

I am preparing for a show so I am nose to the grindstone creating journals! Expect to see alot of journals in the next couple of weeks... I went home with 2 last year and hope to be better prepared this year! This is my new favourite... an experiment with fibres laid into texture medium. I usually use my journals as a place to experiment and try out new ideas... I plan on trying this on some canvases next... I love the resulting texture!
