Hi there friends,
So those of you who follow me will know already that I am exhibiting at the gorgeous Copperhouse gallery in Dublin 8 along with 11 other award-winning & emerging artists and photographers. The breath of work at the show "Connected at the Copperhouse" is truly going to be outstanding and I do hope you can join us there from this thursday March 7th at 6pm.
Just recently I made a short timelapse video of some of my process working on some newer pieces which will have their first showing at this exhibition.
Three of these five new pieces will be shown in the copperhouse, they like much of my work started life as wax and pigment monotypes, produced using asemic markmaking on a hot matrix plate and my own mixes of pigmented wax based medium on fine Japanese kozo papers, this work was inspired by somewhat recent history namely the #metoo campaign and the #ChildishGambino song "this is america"...in this video I explain how I adhere to panel these delicate prints, despite changing my mind and removing them to reapply a layer of colour, the wax really strengthens the already wonderfully stong paper but it is still delicate and I wanted to share with you how I encapsulate the print in this gorgeous medium...I hope you enjoy a wee insight into my studio shenannigans and I hope to see you for the opening if you are free to join us. Remember ALL WELCOME.
as always xx N.
