Afternoons in the Studio

October 19, 2011

The arc of the sun at this time of year, dapples the most lovely light in my studio in the afternoons. The windows are open, circulating a cooling cross-flow of air, and the evening will fall soon.

I am working on the prints for the upcoming group exhibition, MADE at SGAR in Brisbane. As part of my developmental process, I always create test prints at scale to check the final size of the works – both the finished proportions and the size of the motifs – just as I do when creating surface designs for wallpaper. This process is crucial, but that doesn’t mean it has to be expensive! I ask my local print shop to print black and white copies on their large format plan printer. A few dollars later, I have my tests.

The works are not quite there yet. Some more tests to do, but will they be ready soon…
