Letters From The Road


“This exhibition brings together all my creative obsessions, forming a pool of textural indulgence, colour and written text all woven together to form “Letters from the Road”.


The inspiration for this series started with imagery taken from my journeys abroad, and was added to in my everyday travels to and from my studio in the inner west. There is something about the grittiness of sign’s at construction sites, markings on roads and the contrasting reflectivity of rough materials against painted surfaces that enticed me.  My road and train journeys and the shape and feel of the text in books I was reading, letters I was writing, are the threads that link the patterns that you see.

 My work is created using cotton pulp as the paint/print medium. The fine pulp is made from recycled clothing that already has a story woven within its fibres, its own store of memories, and by spray-painting the pulp upon a silkscreen, or printing layers of pulp on hand made paper, it creates the texture and feel of my travels. The colours come from the clothes themselves, making each run of works unique.
