Rubans 2017

A few days ago I spent the day at Big Fag Press with Diego Bonetto printing a new edition of the Rubans prints I started in Paris early last year. This next set is part of a fundraiser project I will be launching very soon, combining my passion for pattern and print with my ever-evolving interest in the empowerment of migrant women through making. More info. coming soon so keep your eyes posted!

 

Tying up loose ends

This work is finally done and dusted. Well… more so washed and hanging out to dry on the clothes line!
It’ll soon be framed then on its way to the Australian Tapestry Workshop in Melbourne for the annual AIR exhibtion which opens in May.
This piece is such a labour of love. Almost a year in the making and made entirely from off cuts from mum’s extensive collection of fabric.

Finally on instagram! Yep, you guessed it, that’s me @clementineamelia.
Here’s a pic. from my most recent post. Me and RFK at the Corita Kent exhibition at the Ian Potter Museum of Art, Melbourne.
So go on, subscribe. AND…. go and see Sister Corita’s Summer of Love!

Wayzgoose with Big Fag Press at Bundanon

I just got back from a fun and productive artist residency with Big Fag Press at Bundanon Trust, which is part of the Boyd estate and situated not too far from Nowra (a few hours drive south of Sydney). Bundanon is a beautiful and peaceful haven with kangaroos, wombats, goannas, cows and snakes a plenty. What a lucky odd bunch of artists we are to have had the opportunity to trade our city lives for a few valuable days of collaborative country adventures.

 

Paris postives

Exciting news, next week I will be screenprinting the remainder of my Vichy postcard series which I commenced in Paris earlier this year.
Sooooo….. I am spending the next few days preparing my stencils. What a nice way to wrap up the year.

There are two ways to look at things

I always fall in love with the imperfection of the reverse side of my work.
In this case, a little fabric collage I have been working on for the past few months.
