Also this week I joined fellow Impress Printmakers members at the Queensland State Library for a viewing of artist books from their extensive collection. My favourite book was "River, plants, birds" by Peta Lloyd. Layers and layers of monotypes, sewing, stencils, text - wonderful!
This was followed by a visit to the Queensland Museum to see an exhibition of Tasmanian Aboriginal Baskets, 'Tayenebe'. I particularly admired the kelp water carriers, and already I have some thoughts on how I could incorporate this into my work.
Such an inspiring day! No wonder I bought armfuls of 'stuff with potential' from Reverse Garbage on the way home!
