A bit of a delayed post as I think the social media game wiped me out last year. This was a great project to design, make and it included a bit of learning too. No nails or screws in this one folks, just dowel joins which for me at least results in a much cleaner finish. Also for once there was just enough timber to complete the piece!
Here was a fun little project which allowed me to use a new gadget, and I love those! Especially when they actually work haha. I wanted to use dowel joins only in this quite minimal piece as I like the finish better than caps or putty. I’m aiming to use this technique as much as possible in the future. The orange oil finish made the piece blend in with the floor boards which was unexpected but the customer is happy 😊
Join us at the National Railway Museum Port Adelaide this weekend, one of my pieces is included in the event 😃👌🏻🚞🎨
Or more accurately a series of murals done throughout the building over the course of a months or so. Cutting the stencils actually took longer than to paint but that’s part of the process. Now I’ve got a series of motifs to use indefinitely or at least until the material breaks down.
The beauty of using metallic paints is that some murals are only really visible at certain angles or times of day. It requires repeat views, making it a process of gradual discovery.
I have been painting and decorating the hallway for a few days in preparation for a mural. All of the colours except the yellow were mixed out of the dark brown, it worked particularly well in the stairwell. The images will be created using stencils and the cutting process has definitely been the most labor intensive part of this project.
Here is the completed tryptich for the final exhibit at Urban Cow Studio before they move into new premises. Enamel on mixed media, these feature a few aerosol techniques I rarely use 🤔👌🏻🎨
Another year and another Fringe exhibit, this one being the last show at Urban Cow Studio before they move to new premises. I’ve been working on a tryptich from a bunch of odds and ends in the workshop.
Opens Monday night March 6th, wish me well ha ha 🎨👍🏻😃
