I’ve been thinking about it in amongst the recent painting and thought it would be interesting to create some shaped plates, and then leave a lot of white paper that will represent the ‘white zone’ areas on the property maps I’ve been painting about. Within this white paper I’m planning some blind embossing of shapes as ghosts of bottle trees past. (This really does sound like I know what I’m doing hey?)
I use the press at BRAG and have it booked for 3 days next week and the week after. I’m so looking forward to it. I stay in Bundaberg to avoid the 200km round trip each day and I will be ‘big city living’ – dinner, cafes, movies. I know, I need to get out more.
