Looking under and across to converging rail tracks in Clifton hill. These were taken some time ago with Impossible Project Silver Shade Film.

Monday afternoon to the squeals of a poorly greased thread I printed an edition of seven lino prints. Cut a few months ago the lino had lain ignored in a drawer awaiting a burst of enthusiasm. A reworking of the same image of Clifton Hill station I painted some time ago here the blacks are crisp and sharp. Contrast and atmosphere can be adjusted with indian ink hand toning, each print handled differently. A pleasant and messy way to while away my last hours in the studio for the year.
A new colour palette for a new map, this time of clifton hill with merri creek running through. Contrasting vibrant colours juxtaposed next to each other dull the whole down whilst retaining some essential purity.
I’ve been writing lots of applications lately and have not yet been able to put coherently into words what these maps are and mean to me. Women’s labour codifying the land, exerting a passive categorical control through slow observation and documentation. An intimate colonisation.

On occasion I paint, some things come easily with oil paints, blurred edges and smudgy blacks, some things are more difficult. It’s not a medium I preference anymore, it seems to lack the directness of grey leads and fails to engage me. Painting does make the fact that the works are in greyscale more evident, a choice rather than a default.
