Transience, a well thought art theme

In 2016 I shared the Living Arts Space at the Bendigo Information centre with two other artists Mari Basile and Lyn Cole.

Our theme was The Transient Landscape.

I realise now that this theme has never really left my body of work.

It has evolved to include the Transience of human existence. Brought to the fore with my challenges over the last 19 months or so with Myeloma.

Working on my latest paper bush mannequin made me realise this, asking myself does it represent evolving from the earth or is it representing returning to it?

Many thanks to hubby Bill Greenaway for continuing to capture me at work.

Miniature winged back chairs

I wanted to make a chair or two for a new miniature room box I am working on. This miniaturist (Bentley House minis) posts quite a few different videos on making things in 1/12 scale which is what I like to work with – it is not too tiny! (see below)

I am really happy with the end results which I know are not perfect but they are totally handmade and feature my unique photographs of Australian wildflowers which I design to print onto cotton.

I also sell this fabric, contact me if you would like to purchase.

Eucy and Sheoak wall hanging

I finally completed this cotton wall hanging.

I decided to use a recycled timber hanging system which goes well with the natural theme.

I would love your feedback.

Winter & spring 2021 Wildflowers Loddon Mallee, Australia

The wildflowers season we have just experienced here in Central Victoria has been stunning.

I was able to get out and capture both new and old acquaintances with my camera and have at last managed to sit down to work on a new repeating design with some of these images.

It will look gorgeous printed on cotton or silk or even wool (I have a supplier who has been testing print on demand wool).

Here is a sampler..

SPACE EXHIBITION, BENDIGO, AUSTRALIA

Despite Covid restrictions our group exhibition has managed to attract visitors and art sales.

The show is on until Sunday 17th October 2021, so those who live regionally can still make it!

Here are some images of my contribution to the theme of Space and what it means to me.

Enjoy!
