A New Exhibition

5 Nov

In it’s final week! Appearing in the Womens Arts Association exhibition at Cardiff’s Llanover Hall until December 12th 2016.

A few days ago I finished a short residency at the lovely Galerie Simpson where I had the space and time to develop a new piece of art. I’m a 2 dimensional artist, I have a 2D brain and I experimented with making something 3 dimensional, without the benefit of a 3D brain. I was inspired by one of my favourite artists, Käthe Kollwitz and worked with an image created from a rubber stamp that I had made from a silkscreen print of her I had done from a drawing. I printed with Intaglio Printmaker Litho / Relief ink thinned with some Extender onto Japanese Shiohara paper. I incorporated text which was a sort of love letter to Käthe, using Uni Pin fineline pens. I stitched it on an Edwardian Singer sewing machine and the work is supported with 2mm aluminium armature wire.

The work has been accepted into a Womens Arts Association exhibition that begins tomorrow in Cardiff. Please pop in to the opening event on November 11th if you’re passing 😀
