2017

We move forward from two successful exhibitions in 2016 in Prague and in the USA to the challenge of an exhibition in the Netherlands in the Autumn. We continue to work on A2 sized pieces in portrait format and will be producing four pieces over the year with the theme of 'Freedom'. An essential part of our art is working in series to a common format which does give us all a framework for our creative endeavours.

Finished

Festival of Quilts is over and now I am finishing quilts.
I have been working on a set of quilts using counterchange principles - light on a dark background and dark on a light background.
I now have a nature abstracted counterchange series

Now I have to decide which one of the above  I will display at Prague. If you look carefully you can see the positive and the negative, making 2 different quilts

I have just come back from teaching in South Africa. There are guinea fowl images everywhere. So I took a simple shape of a guinea fowl and made lots of drawings. I printed the guinea fowl shapes that I cut out as well as printing the backgrounds i.e. the negative shapes, then added some blue and red paint

For my final piece I was inspired by simple tree shapes and again used the positive and negatives but this time added some paint using a stencil.

  2. Now that is interesting as it was the one I was thinking I would not include.
    It's good to try new ways of working.

  3. The Guinea Fowl is my favourite, love the colours and patterns. Although I do like the colour choices in the trees piece, love trees!
