It’s gold and glittery… I have been entered the fantastic world of woodblock printing. The print above depicts my hometown Perth, Western Australia. I have added topographical lines and golden shading to the printed image using posca paint markers. I initially intended to use the woodblock below for the topographical patterns, but found that due to the thickness of the lines it works better as a separate image.
I am taking great delight in my ceramics course and creating some 3-dimensional archetypes with clay. The “Good Omen” heralds the birth of a new artistic direction and the coming of Easter. The above images show porcelain ceramics which are drying prior to the initial bisque firing (1000 degrees) after which they will be glazed and then again fired to stoneware quality (1360 degrees). The archetypal individuals have been placed in archetypal arrangements: “the archetypal philosophy circle” and “the archetypal power struggle”.
