Challenged to combine a dinosaur with an earlier collage.

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.

Collage work, challenge me.

Collage workshop in my backyard.

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.

Candle holders from garage sale

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

Collage in my backyard workshop.

We had a fabulous workshop with a group of gorgeous women.  They were brave enough to come to the workshop without any planning, no preconceived ideas which can be daunting for many people.

What emerged was some beautiful squeegied backgrounds (see the yellow and amber one) some clever cutouts, (see the linked boxers, fish, rabbit).

I actually showed my work at the beginning of the class which I do not normally do.  I showed how easy it is to move a piece of paper from one scene into another and how to not be too precious about things.  If your paper cut breaks/tears it is easily fixable with glue.  We used beautiful Fabriano and Arches 300gsm paper.

Everyone brought food to share, we had scones and homemade raspberry jam, apricots and bubbly.   It was a great day.

Surreal and figurative collage assemblage.

Happy Christmas everyone.

Alphington Open Studios is this weekend 24th and 25th November 11-6.

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.  studio 1 set upstudio 2 set upstudio lounge set up 1studio lounge set up 2

Exhibition of Collage at Tuggeranong Arts in Canberra on now.

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.  See more images on https://www.annewarrenart.com/

Digital images from Smith Street shops.

I took these photos and then photoshopped them into these fun images.  Mai was shopping for fruit so she has the whole shop and more on her shoulders now.  Doug was at the pub and got a little clumsy.  Just a little bit of fun playing with scale and of course photoshop and some drawing.  They are around A5 size ink jet prints limited edition (only 5).   I have a few more Smith Street shopps being carted around by people.
