Back on the art wagon

Categories Blog

Well, the wedding was delightful and we had a lovely weekend but I’m very glad to be home and picking up the reins of my life again: the wedding has dominated the last couple of weeks and I’m keen to get back to my own work. I did hand out lots of little Moo cards though, so many in fact, that I’ll need to do another order soon. I’d been planning on buying a box this month anyway because I wanted some to promote this site. Just another small reminder that promotion needs constant effort.

I was looking for images of insect wings in Google Images earlier, when I spotted this article about Tasmanian artist, Catherine Woo.

I enjoyed her very organic work, which uses materials such as mica, mica dust, powdered marble, lead and burnt paper to create images that reference scientific imagery and the natural world. There are some images at her gallery, but I wish she had her own website so that I could see more of her work.

I prefer her older, more microscopic and patterned work to the more recent cloud imagery in the gallery website, which seems a bit too literal to me.

I am an artist & purveyor of obsessive projects based in Hebden Bridge, England. My work involves the accretion of large numbers of small objects - pins in fabric, knots in string or hundreds of envelopes - to make sculptures that deal with fragility, loss, repetition, obsession and time.

  1. Hi Lindsay, I’m glad you found it interesting. Good to hear you’re able to get back to your work too – is your hand getting better?

    Will email with more thoughts about the dual project.
