May Musings…

Been playing with the 3D lumiere paint again, this time seeing how the glue side of things work. This little number is a collection of hand painted tubes about 7mm in diameter. The 3D lumiere paint has stuck them down quite well and the paint itself is very solid too. Took a few days to dry so handy to have a piece of cardboard under for shifting it around the studio.

My friend, Jill Burgess,  has been getting creative with the tumble dyes. The lace on the dress was sprayed Charcoal and used to imprint onto the matching top. The top started out as white fabric and now has a lovely lace pattern all over it. The outfit was under construction when I took this but I understand it debutes this weekend. Looks fantastic Jill!

Sneek peak at one of my pieces for the upcoming exhibition at the Redcliffe City Art Gallery, Redcliffe, Queensland. The exhibition is by the Reddy Arts Textile Group and is on from July 12 to August 25. We’ll be having an Open Day at the Gallery on July 17 – talks and demos etc at the Gallery. Its going to be fun.

Prior to that exhibition, I have another set of work in an exhibition called “The Dress” opening in Adelaide on June 8 and going through to July 1 and the above is a sneak peak of that one. It’s on at Gallery M, Marion, South Australia. Lots to see here as its two groups of artists with a strong textile focus.
