Julie Paterson discusses her current series, interviewed at Rough Track Cabins

Julie talks about her new series of works to be showcased at an upcoming exhibition, Edge to Edge, Landscapes on Cloth, at Lost Bear Gallery in the Blue Mountains. 

Like traditional tapestries, these artworks are on fabric and they tell a story. They are designed to hang on a wall without a frame. I print with water-based screen-printing inks, then the finished artwork is heat treated and Scotchgarded. It’s the same process I use for my commercial furnishing fabrics to make the works robust, which is why they don’t have to be framed in a traditional way.
The canvas for these artworks is commercially screen-printed industrial-quality upholstery ClothFabric. Some are linen, some are hemp, all printed by hand in regional NSW.

Generally we gather at Govetts Leap when the full moon rises, and sometimes, for the sunset. Creating this work reminded me what a good idea it is to go down to watch the sun come up with a thermos of tea.
