An Artist's date

A few weeks ago i took myself for an artist's date... 
unfortunately it was a wet, windy, grey Saturday morning - but I had it 'locked in'.

I wandered for a bit around Reef Beach which is down the rocks from Arabanoo lookout, 
Tania Park, near Manly, Sydney Australia.

Arabanoo was an indigenous man who was kidnapped by marines in 1788, it is said that he first thought  the handcuffs to be ornamental. I wanted to explore this idea through imagery of pieces I found on Reef Beach.

From my foraged finds I took photos of some of the arrangements

shot on my iphone 5s
I used these images to form a grid of images that captured the essence of what I saw.

Making the structure  of the wristlet from sculpey,
I printed out the images onto fabric using my inkjet printer.
(ironing the fabric to freezer paper first, to keep it firm).

This monoprint was created using my gelli plate.
I'm enjoying the process of visiting a place and creating a response to it -
easier than sketching the great outdoors insitu!

This is the second art adventure of yours I've viewed and I'm still just as blown away as I was watching the first one. The way you experience your environment and then verbalize that visually is awe inspiring.

Absolutely lovely!! I saw that you were included in Uppercase and was so drawn the sample of your work that I had to come check out your blog. Cheers!

I reckon you're onto something there, talking about experiencing a place and then translating it into a visual response via art. And you've captured it so well in the video, and carried it right through to both the 2D and 3D creations. Love it!
I've been on a similar, but different, journey with the boys - experiencing our local suburb and collecting things we find on the streets/pathways. Your post here has really started me thinking about how we can take our explorations even further creatively. Thank you for your constant inspiration, dear friend! xx
