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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
