At last, I have made 12 prints inspired by the australian “outback” and all of them will feature in my show “Australie” in September at the Mediatheque in Lauzerte. And those prints are all red – or mostly red – of course! No need for dark glasses, though, because their effect will be somewhat counteracted by a number of photos in BLACK & WHITE by Chris Collister, which were also inspired by the same australian landscape. Bizarre but true!
I do wonder why it’s taken nearly a year to produce these prints. I have had the sketches in front of me since we got back from Australia last October and was only able to work on them as the dates for the planned “Australie” show grew closer. Does this mean we are motivated mainly by FEAR to produce art?
Anyway, here is a taster of the pieces that will be on show during “Australie” (18 – 30 September.) Here is Ruby Gap 1 and Ruby Gap 4.
