Linoleum and beads on board: 14cm x 17cm: $80 + postage = SOLD
I made this piece last week whilst sorting through the many things stored in studio, and dreaming ways to keep the space. I never discard any linoleum that comes my way. It's hard to find these days so every sliver feels precious. Linoleum Leap is a very new work made from some of the old things stored in the studio at the top of the Mill. I have piles of linoleum up there and the idea of dragging it down the stairs again and finding some other place for it seems impossible. I feel the only way to get through these piles of things is by transforming them into other things, and moving them out... one tiny Linoleum Leap at a time.
Studio Keeping: A small project to keep a big space. Funds raised through this initiative will go directly to keeping the third floor of Tremain Mill as a studio space while Karen works through the estate of deceased artist Steve Kirby. This project will culminate in a very special art making experience at Bathurst Regional Art Gallery in 2016.
