Water & Air Exhibition
These assemblages are inspired and constructed using vintage linoleums from the 1950-70s, are have been collected from a variety of homes in
Tasmania. The lino itself evokes memory of childhood, of being at grandmother's house, of comfort and love.
I have constructed the individual pieces into shapes and silhouettes to form 2 groupings, each using similar materials and found objects of the era.
Both groups convey a similar essence of 'freedom' one 'manmade', the other 'nature'.
Both Bird and Boat themes have been an ongoing interest in my sculpture and my etchings. The shapes of these forms, I find most pleasing to the
eye. The 'linos' are getting harder to find and I wanted to capture them and showcase them in another form, showing the sweet sense of
'antiquity' and shaping them into into other delicate 'paintings' whilst keeping their integrity intact.
