I'm not going to start with my usual apology as its beginning to sound insincere! I will just get straight on with my post xxx
I wanted to share my latest piece of work for which i used my new found skill/interest/business of screen printing.
For the L.ttle bird show Georgia had asked people from all over the country to make 3D bids to join a giant flock, she also needed at shortish notice to cover the walls of the gallery , so drew upon her local artist friends whom she knew had a bird thing going on! I have been playing with this idea for a while drawing the bird skins whilst at various museums so I couldn't resist the opportunity to make a big piece for the show.
Ideas were going all over the place but the idea of a repeated screen print was strong ( I did want to make a garment with the print on but felt I should try to just make a large piece for this show and work on the garment idea latter.)
SO that became my brief - make a 11ft long piece of printed fabric (Light weight calico), with added the vintage book pages and maps as tags to give a 3D element to the piece (and bring that vintage ephemera look I do so love!)
I think once show is finished I will try print on a garment, maybe round the bottom of a skirt or on a scarf??? we will see xx
