– so I made my own exhibition catalogues by hand using photocopies, scrap paper, sticky tape and hand-typed titles. It has my artist essay, details of the development process and excerpts of the documentation –

UOW officially opened its brand new postgraduate facilities this week! ‘Backstage Hope’ as the building is called houses a performance rehearsal space, individual offices, and visual arts studios (all completely brand new which is pretty exciting).
For the opening we had a little exhibition of work that we’d created in the studio.
This installation shot shows my two screen prints and a textile piece by Aprina.
Spent a few hours testing out my new screen. I was a little worried that the detail in the image would be too fine and hence wouldn’t print – but its all good! So I just worked with one screen and did a small test of a series of screens masked out to varying levels. Trying out ways to communicate all those stats I spent so much time with!
So I just worked with one screen and did a small test of a series of screens masked out to varying levels. I also had a play around with the different types of inks I was using – mixing with printing base to thin it out or alternatively with printing paste to make the ink thicker.
Trying out ways to communicate all those stats I spent so much time with! There was about 7 screens altogether.
