Exhibition 5(-dog)

Well, last week I had an exhibition in Wellington, with four other students, as the final step in my Advanced Diploma of Art & Creativity. Approx 300 people attended over the opening night and three days following, so that was excellent.
The Advanced Diploma is the equivalent of a BFA so I am really happy to have achieved it. It was fantastic fun. Hard work too mind you 😉

These photos show just 6 of more than 100 photos I have worked on over the last year. I used the same photo of each – of shadows on our concrete driveway. Early on, I coloured parts of the photo, then replicated the shadow lines. Over time, things got both simpler and more complex. I stopped “colouring in” but started playing with how the marks I made with paint or oil pastel did things to the shadow lines. In real life the white acrylic lines, in particular, seem to stand right off the photo, sitting way out in front as though in another plane – like they were on a transparent surface laying an inch or so above the photo.

  1. Cath, Congratulations on your graduation. I can tell you have a sound foundation to a rich journey.
    I would love to see your slide show but the right side of your blog is blank. Maybe it is too big a file for my computer.


  2. Congratulations Cath,
    Love your work…..

    Thank you so much for the lovely comment to my collage, It worked out pretty much like I planned, the halo that is…

  3. Congratulations Cath! That’s an incredible accomplishment. You must be so happy.

    I apologize for missing a couple of your posts. I have changed my subscription platform and some of my subscriptions fell through the cracks and am still trying to restore them. Anyway. Whew! Glad to be back watching your progress!
