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.

Stretching Tradition 2018 Pieces "Canadian Voyage"

Leaving it to the last minute as usula!
Started these pieces months ago but only got around to getting them near a finished state today.

My inspiration was a trip to Canada earlier this year. I used a selection of some of my favourite photos from the trip, played about with them in Photoshop and used a photo transfer method to get the images onto fabric. I wanted to try and achieve a minimalist feel to the pieces, I had to restrain myself from adding more layers of images, paint, stencils, etc.!

  1. Lovely imagery Paula - I assume last piece is based on Victoria? But I thought we were only doing two pieces in 2018?
