My upcoming exhibition at Bathurst Regional Art Gallery has got me thinking beyond paintings and drawings headed for a wall. There is a joy in moving my painted cloud props on sticks around in my still life set ups and it has been fun to dabble in the beginnings of animation and think of ideas around installation too. Since hearing Damian Gascoigne, Genevieve Carroll and Locust Jones talk with Emma Collerton at The Artist as Animator exhibition at Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, I have started to play with stop motion reels of some of my existing charcoal drawings. Here’s as simple as it gets - some of my drawings in a reel posted into my instagram. It is enlivening to think of possibilities when seeing these drawings of mine somehow move from one still to the next.
