ICE 2011

This time every year there is an air of anticipation around... it's almost time for the International Collage Exchange to open and that means beautiful, weird, profound, ambiguous and awesome collages can be seen here from the 1st of April for a month long exhibition.  For the lucky ones living in New Plymouth, New Zealand there is also the opportunity to see them all in real life at a gallery there and of course to buy a couple.

This year I made a collection of cat collages and covered them with paint, paper, drawing and varnish - they came together nicely but only right at the end..... phew!





...back soon with more news ..e^)

...and my "cat-a-tonic" has sold... see the whole exhibition   here!!

acrylic experiments

Experimenting with white acrylic skins has had this pretty result.  These are like decals that I can stick on any smooth surface and they will remain there.  You can move them around to form different designs and these are really interesting on a white surface.  The paint has become the figure and the ground has become part of the figure.. ;-)
