Sticking with the still life for a bit but I had a day off to shop in Chapel Street Prahran yesterday.
Thanks for your encouragement regarding last post – still-life boring or not. I am continuing with it and am finding that each one changes a little in style so I am enjoying these development stages. Oh and by the way my husband, my dear neighbours and I are on the lookout for bits and pieces for me to paint. I had some shopping to do in Chapel Street Prahran/Windsor yesterday so I took these pics. The vintage/junk place is a market shop in Greville Street. Amazing things.
My apologies for not listing every artist name. I would like to congratulate Mathew Harding as the winner. Please go to their website to see the names and more amazing work. http://www.mcclellandgallery.com This last one is not part of the comp and is by Anthony Prior.
We are pleased to announce that the McClelland Award 2014, an acquisitive award valued at $100,000 was awarded to Matthew Harding for his work Void.The McClelland Award 2014 was judged by Dr Liz Kreijn, Assistant Director, Collection & Presentation of the Kröller-Müller Museum in the Netherlands.
The McClelland Achievement Prize (MAP) was awarded to Sonia Payes for Re:Generation. Valued at $30,000 (non-acquisitive) MAP includes a solo exhibition of the artist’s work at McClelland during the time of the subsequent McClelland Sculpture Survey in 2016.
The circle on the left is current, the circle on the right is what it looked like before. I painted out the image and turned it over because I liked the ink staining on the edges. The gouping of cutouts above are the ones I have used in this image. Can you make out what they are? Anything goes with mixed media. I have used really heavy arches watercolour paper so that it does not buckle and can handle the torture I put it under. Yesterday I even scrubbed it with my kitchen scourer.
This is just a snippet of some of the work I have been making or playing with.
I have just emailed my Art Workshops Summer Newsletter to those that signed up for contact. If you are interested in classes please let me know.
