Artist Talk - Fremantle Art Centre FOUND, Saturday 15th September, at 1pm





To coincide with the opening of the Fremantle Art Centre Print Award, Thursday 13th September at 6.30pm, I'll be doing an installation in the glass cabinet outside FOUND gift store at FAC.   Books and dry-point prints will be available in FOUND.  Pop down on Saturday afternoon and join me for a relaxed Artist Talk about how the collection evolved through underground publishing, and the creative process of making both the handmade and published books.   Hot of the press, 'Wisdoms of Rose', is now available in FOUND. Happy to sign books on the day for you - and questions are very welcome.

Army of Ink Lost Her Key

Some days she felt like a wind-up toy that had lost its key .

Wisdoms of Rose

Rose wasn't cursed with good looks.

Rose is free from any expectation to be abnormally beautiful 24/7, which leaves her undefinable by looks alone - and alone she is.  Consequently, Rose rarely receives invitations of the social kind but isn't bothered by being omitted in this way.  In fact, it affords her three good things.  One, more time to herself.  Two, being left alone to be herself.  And three, to live within the containment of her own tangible world. 

With such a high level of self acceptance, Rose manages to by-pass all standard dress codes and cosmetic alterations of the conforming and horribly constricting kind - and mirrors.  Long Live Rose.

Find Rose in the handmade book or card collection in Bookshop/Gallery.
