my friend in tasmania told me about an exhibition
called; light and shade
by Chantale Delrue (pictures above)
I was intrigued, and discovered that she draws stuff and uses natural dyes on paper to make work. WHich is kinda inspiring. Oh and some plants.
I was pondering the toxicity of gum turps
oil painting and using oil mediums
even though it is so lustrous, nice and amazing
i can't help but feel a bit light headed after a painting session.
i hear India Flint in the back of my mind...'of course my petal' she says, 'why would you use that poison?' Of course.
Some of us are just a bit slow.
Perhaps the skanky pot scrapings will become masterpieces.
But, still, I love paint. Paint. Rabbits eyeball and calcium carbonate, ground pig tooth and pigment, black tar and bitch -u- men.
BUt still could try being less harmful to myself and the world.
So thanks to my friend and Chantale and India endlessly.....
