Golden Textures

I have been selected as one of the exhibiting artists for Golden Textures in Maryborough Victoria at the Central Goldfields Art Gallery. The exhibition will run from February 21- April 5 2015. My  series is titled Seduced by the Imperfect and I'm excited to be making these new works.
A week or two ago it was very sunny and still enough to begin the dye process outside in my small backyard. Love this palm frond shadow- an idea for future work?
My colour palette is muted grey at this point so I was aiming for various effects with the dye. I am not using procion dyes for this as they are very water intensive and instead have found instant gratification with the Kraftkolour sun dyes made in Australia.
Pegs and beach pebbles help keep my fabric in position while the dyes work and dry.
And  a bit of shadow play while waiting!
