Collaged, stitched concertina art book, dipped in indigo.
Shown in the Unbound: Explorations Into Indigo Exhibition, Australia 2016.
These works venture into that deep blue hinterland, exploring the ancient alchemy of indigo, trying to push into the blue. How far can you go? What if you dipped paper in the unpredictable indigo vat, pressed roses into it and abandoned it to the elements? What if you inscribed that indigo map with bone and ink? What if you bathed it all in gold, dipped into another alchemy?
