I continue to explore different aspects of conditions at Lake Mungo. In a sense I feel as though I am ‘Painting’ with paper http://au.pinterest.com/elainedesterre/collage-painting-with-paper/.
After the paper sales in November, inspiration, tactility and textures of different types of papers over took my oil paintings almost complete, but the urge for paper took over.
On top of a pastel paper background sits a torn piece of collagraph over laid with bark paper and other handmade papers.
I like to combine elements in compositions that allude to a sense of the macro, erosion over millennia with the micro, a sense of present time situated in this place of archaeological significance.
