Many of us have had to restrict our movements for weeks or months on end over the past year. Rather than dwelling on the negatives, I decided to observe and appreciate the familiar things in my environment and use them in a positive way as a springboard for creativity and making some new art. I used various eco-friendly ways to develop this series of artworks on paper, including paint made from dirt, an eco print made using locally foraged plant materials and hand stitching.
My ‘peripheral’ series was inspired by the local environment and photographs I took around my home in northern Tasmania.
