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/

Late night collage nonsense in sepia.

This is one of 5 or 6 in a series I made from just two books.  They were actually black and white but I changed them to sepia digitally.

 

Just having a bit of fun with the cliche scale of people and objects.  I never tire of the absurdity of unexpected scale.

More of these on instagram annewarrenart.

These are not in Canberra but I will be in Tuggeranong early in October.  Please come along and see my exhibition.  Come and say hello at the Opening night  Thursday 4th October at 6pm.  black and white 5 bridge

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.

Building Heads now Giclee edition.

This was a result of a late night fiddle with scissors, books and blue tack.  I made several images with these heads, especially the large one on the left.  On instagram (annewarrenart) I was asked by a follower for a Giclee print of the image so I made one and the rest is history.  Now these are very small prints on Arches Watercolour paper 300gsm in sepia.  Only 10 in the edition.  I will have them available at the November open studios event.  Let me know if you would like more information.

You can see all 5 (I think) in black and white on instagram.

Hope you like them.black and white 1 heads.jpg

Canberra Art Exhibition and Art Workshop coming soon.

It’s almost here.  Thursday 4th of October at 6pm if you are anywhere near Tuggeranong in Canberra please come by, say hello, have a glass of wine and you will see what I have been working on for my exhibition Mergence.

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.warrenanne_stilllife.jpg

Making an abstract assemblage from old work.

I painted a few small abstract artworks but kept remembering pieces of art sitting in folios.  I started using resources that I have looked at and passed over so many times and finally they have been the perfect resources for a series of four artworks.  Some works are 3D, some have ink, acrylic and or gouache paint.  See more at my website http://www.annewarrenart.com or instagram annewarrenart.abss

Best ever store display at Myer Melbourne.

It’s an old picture I took a number of years ago and as I just came across it I thought I would share with you.  This wonderful, crazy, display, was in the Bed Linen section of Myer Melbourne.  It looks like someone was finally given freedom to do as they wished instead of standard, boring planogram displays.   Should be more of these.   mattress

Preparing for next weeks art exhibition ‘Now and Then’

Whenever I exhibit with the Out of the Box Artist group there is usually something extra, something collaborative or similar made by each of the artists.  This year we all passed on to others in the group some hand painted or treated paper pieces.  Below is my little patchwork country collage piece on board.

I have approximately 8 artworks in this exhibition.

Now and Then inviteOfficial Opening next Sunday 8th October, 2-4pm.
