Affordable Art Fair Melbourne


Affordable Art Fair Melbourne, a set on Flickr.
These are some of the works I took to the Melbourne Affordable Art Fair last weekend. I was pleased that people liked them; but it was a bit hard to part with them, as there were so long in the creation.

Set up for pinhole photograph

Trialing positions for the pinhole camera - the chess set seemed inviting .. or maybe the statue.

Spent around 4 hours all up setting up and taking the shots with a pinhole camera only to have the films being messed up in the development - so these are the only(digital) scraps of evidence of what might have been.
Will try to borrow the pinhole camera again next week to repeat the exercise!

Printmaking class

Having thought lots about these prints, I have created plates from pasteboard and acetate plates to decide which I like best.
These are smallish- around 8x10 inches.
Here are the proofs.

And these are the pasteboard plates.

The plates start to take on a character of their own after they have been printed a few times.
