Nude

Monday, January 31st, 2011

This Nude I did in May last year, as part of TAFE. I’ve heard this method described as ‘Javanese Painterly Method’.

Whatever it’s called, it was introduced to me by Anita Laurence. It involves carving simple lines into board (such as MDF), then painting onto the board with Acrylics (for the fast drying time), and then hand burnishing the paper on the board to pick up the print. So it’s a painterly printmaking method.

"Polyphony" - Acrylic on Canvas 2009

My second entry in the Linden Postcard prize. Inspired by native grasses in the Warby Ranges. I was fascinated by the patterns created by layers of different grasses, they remind me of listening to polyphonic compositions at jazz school – layers of rhythmic sound patterns overlaying and gradually changing.

This is one of my entries for the Linden Postcard Prize 2009.

I wanted to experiment with representing foliage, and was inspired by new growth on an Apple Box Eucalypt while walking in the Warby Ranges.
