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.

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.
Favourite colour is all kinds of yellow.
This is a small painting of around 25 x 25cm using acrylic on board. This is one of a series of four still-life works. They are all framed in blondewood box frames. I will post some of the others later. Loved making them and using super vibrant colours. I have used a limited palette as I always do however I will always introduce alizarin crimson for apples. So only four colours plus white. I think you can call that pretty limited.
Peachy, orangy colours but it’s a persimmon.
A small painting on board done using acrylics. The fruit is off my tree that refuses to grow taller. Many years ago I took a photo of myself in front of the newly planted tree hoping it would get taller but alas it is still the same size. I get only about six pieces of fruit from it. The best thing is it is a pretty tree and the fruit is delicious.
Torn paper and found image mixed media collage.
The fish and bird were made quite a long time a using torn paper with gouache and pencil. The work in progress is the tomb which still has a long way to go but I think has potential. Hope you think so too. Am working on quite a few tombs and making them into unique new environments.
Still teaching workshops in collage and still-life painting – message me if you are interested. I teach from my studio in Alphington, Victoria.

A Christmassy surreal and funny image.
The beautiful little reindeer child is image Number 6 of 12 Images I am making for my Grandson’s first 12 months.
Just added a little still life I made a year ago (sold).
Oh and it’s going to be 35 degrees Celsius on Christmas day and yes we will still be having hot lunches and dinners anyway because of tradition that has become part of our Australian culture. But don’t worry about us as I’m sure there will also be ice and cold drinks and icecream and beer and wine etc. etc. …
Paintbrushes needed for Northern Territory.
This would be for Australia only as we have just three weeks to collect and deliver them.
Can you help out a remote community in the Northern Territory?
Paintbrushes old and new needed
Gurindji Project Paintbrushes.
The Gurindji people live in the remote Northern Territory town , called Kalkaringi, 800 kms south west of Darwin, nearest biggest town is Katherine 400 kms away.
A converted small power station was refurbished to become an Art Space from the proceeds of selling the book “From Little Things Big Things Grow” which is the story based on their Freedom Walk 50 years ago this August. Penny Smith an Art teacher from Queensland went to help set the Art Space up five years ago and is still there. A call has gone out for paintbrushes, new or used. My friend Galia will be travelling there on 5th August to deliver them.
This is a very small community of 600 people with very few facilities/materials and or things to do. Well done Penny Smith you are amazing.
Delivery of Brushes
I am happy to receive them here in Alphington (email@example.com) for address. Another drop off point is Cambridge Studio Gallery in Cambridge Street Collingwood. You can look their Gallery hours up and deliver there if it suits better.
Timeline: Just three weeks. Must pass them on by Monday 25th July.
Thankyou and happy hunting – Anne Warren
