Can you ‘publish’ a fabric one off zine/book? Perhaps, well it appeared in our recent Traces exhibition in Perth, so it has been issued to the public. It was a lovely space, RSGS in Fair maids house. The pieces exhibited has a vague ‘traces’ theme and also aimed to hint towards the work that the RSGS do and have done over the years.
My piece (images below) was a fabric printed and stitched book focused on the landscapes that have left traces on me over the years. It was quite rough n ready but I loved the process.
After cutting the calico I gelli printed some backgrounds before adding detail through stitching and adding in more paper prints and chemigrams.
It’s definitely the start of a new way of working.
