August 2015 Business Meeting
Today we shared our ideas, our inspiration and our progress to date.
Maureen is working on “Nightscape” “Dayscape” and “Waterscape”.
And of course Maureen’s birds, as always, feature in her work this time in the form of Australian wading birds based on “Wading Birds of Australia” by David Hollands Photographs by Clive Minton.
To quote Maureen “This book had a profound effect on me – the birds – they fly free”.
Lorraine likes grids and is focused on Aerial landscapes inspired by Nigel Peake. And what better way to work with a grid than canvas work. But Lorraine’s canvases are rich with paint, fabric and stitch.
Teresa is working on a series of small pieces based on areas around Jervis Bay on the South Coast; a Landscape of Memories. Teresa is experimenting with photos printed on silk organza and other sheer fabrics.
Robin’s landscape is inspired by childhood memories of living in the country. And she is exploring a variety of techniques including lino printing, knitting and layering fabric. Robin has an interest in trees and scenery especially as seen from a moving vehicle.
Annette is continuing with her circle series with one of her pieces but is also experimenting with layering hand dyed fabrics. But more than this Annette is working with strips of fabric and “playing and seeing where it goes”.
