    Watercolour Mono-prints

    Inspired by my residency at Artist Proof Studios last year I have been developing a new body of works using the Watercolour Monotype process. Repeated printing - involving a careful process of registration - enables me to evolve a delicately painted layering of accumulative marks in works that reflect upon change.

    Wake (work in progress)

    Wake’ is a work in progress that emerged from a fascination with the carved wooden matrix of the woodblock. The work seeks to emulate an existing wooden floor that is carved to evoke the gentle wake of an ocean wave at the point at which it begins to retreat back down the sandy shore - a moment that has for me always resonated with a living being, breathing.

    A maquette of the work was first exhibited at Commune 1 Gallery’s group show ‘Salvo’ in Cape Town 2012.

    Lost Posters (work in progress)

    This print series is an ongoing project since March 2012. The prints are editioned only by the date of their printing and are freely distributed on public walls, in friends’ homes and exhibition sites that hold some significance to me. It attempts to define a new engagement with an audience, often unsuspecting, and has proven to be both a challenging and rewarding experience for both me and the viewers I have spoken to. Born of a desire to transgress an often alienating street environment, this project seeks both to travel and to forge a different connection with the often transitory viewers and inhabitants of urban spaces.
