In my heart I didn’t miss it, with my work sadly I didn’t exhibit specifically for 2019 International Women’s Day however I have recently had some strong ideas regarding new work to do with women. In the new work I would like to show the different ages, careers, ethnicities and histories. Yet to formulate exactly how that will appear on paper but am thinking about it alot and have taken up life drawing again.
I hope in the future work I make to show women with quirks that are unexpected hybrids of what you might expect. I hope in the future that I too will be called a quirky unexpected hybrid, maybe I am one now.
Just came back from beautiful Byron Bay in New South Wales, Australia. Please look it up if you are from overseas. It’s so beautiful and loved by hippies of all ages. Yesterday they had a nude bike ride through the main street. The night before I saw whole families dressed and painted like Frida Kahlo (men too). Anything goes in Byron.
I was challenged by Reader Leonie Andrews to combine one of my last ephemeral collages with a dinosaur. Hope you like it. Light rather than dark version.

We had a very hot day but it was a fun day. I erected a marquee so we had shade for our group that were cutting images from books, inking paper and squeegieing paint onto paper in preparation for their assemblages. We used gorgeous Fabriano and Arches 300gsm paper.
Maxine O’Brien made the two images shown here.
Collage is such a fun and friendly medium.
We have had a very hot hot hot Summer so we are hoping for a little relief from the heat soon. By the way two days ago we had 43 degrees Celcius and overnight did not dip lower than 30 degrees Celcius. Bit hot, just a bit.
Found these at a garage sale. Loved them from a distance. Wasn’t sure what I would have paid for them but $2.50each was terrific. Lucky me. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bs2aBpdFKpW/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=ie6ye4vtolu1
It’s not a big area around Alphington with only 13 (diverse) artists participating. See Alphington Studios facebook site and or Alphington Studios Website where you will find lots more information about all the artists. More pictures from me on Instagram: annewarrenart. The beautiful fine tapestry work is by one of this year’s guest artists Joy Smith.
If you do make it to Alphington please say hello.
I have just returned from a wonderful trip to Canberra for the Opening of my Solo Exhibition – Mergence. I loved Canberra including the National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Floriade, Arboretum, Glass Making Factory/Warehouse, Market, quirky Kendell Lane, Little Istanbul and numerous restaurants for delicious food.
The workshop I conducted was at the Arts Centre which backed on to the lake, so we dragged our chairs outside and had lunch with a view. Beautiful time. Great people. x
I hope more people will come to see the artwork. It is 3D collage assemblage.
Mergence was my response to an umbrella title Entropy. Everything fragments, everything disintergrates. My selected subjects fragment and merge, histories merge, people merge, animals merge. I would like to think that they successfully merge and are not too surreal to imagine. A fisherperson becomes part fish part person. Someone that loves their house becomes part person part house.
