This work titled Deforestation is a poignant comment on the ongoing problem of the removal of our forests . The artist Shane Coutts is one of the artists featured in the current exhibition “Magic Landscape” from Araluen Centre. The work is a timber construction that cleverly plays with perspective and perception.
The eye is the window into the soul, but it also is how we look out at the world. So I decided to use the eye to represent some of the ways women do this: the extroverted, the introverted, beginning a somewhat scarey opportunity, and contemplating the opposite sex. They were shown in the recent Womens Business exhibition.
Two different techniques have been used in these pieces. They are all 4-layer fused glass panels(200 x 150 mm), but the eye and eyelid are created with application upon application of glass powders on 3 of the glass sheets, giving a softer, more dimensional effect than the figures, which are painted on one of the layers with onglaze.
Outward” was inspired by the eye of a lively young female Parks Victoria ranger.
Inward was inspired by a magazine article and a photo of a woman who had experienced multiple family tragedies.
Onward was inspired by the eye of a woman who came to Melbourne from Asia as a teenager.
Other, somewhat the odd bod in the series and actually the first, was inspired by the eye of a very good-looking tour guide of Irish-Aboriginal ancestry in the Kimberley.
