Medium

marine macroalgae paper and resin on board, framed in a natural timber tray frame

Description

This work is made from seaweeds gathered during a recent residency in Iceland, and relates to my experiences there. I have been exploring the medium of seaweed pulps and finding new ways to use this amazing material.
The seaweed has been processed to pulp and then handmade paper has been formed. This has been attached to a primed board with deep sides which has been framed in a natural timber frame with wire attached, and so is ready to hang. The work has been coated with multiple layers of resin, which gives it a feeling of depth and complements the underwater theme.
More of my Iceland inspired work will feature in a solo exhibition coming up in June 2018.
