Michele and I have been busy playing with the possibilities of adding carborundum to our toolkit. After several weeks of experiments and expletives we have completed the first panels of what we are hoping to be a larger work based on the theme of ‘tidelines’ (inspired by Michele’s artist book of the same name).

2012 / carborundum, etching, woodblock and emboss / 40 x 160 cm


These mezzotints are a series I have been working on (off and on) for several years dealing with the resonance of empty spaces and discarded objects.

… Houses and bodies
have memories, but forget.
Things drop through cracks.
Mice chew old letters…
from Habitat by Judith Wright

… A house that has been experienced is not an inert box. …
Objects that are cherished…are born of an intimate light, and they attain a higher degree of reality than indifferent objects… they produce a new reality of being.
from The Poetics of Space by Gaston Bachelard
