Community Events Preservation by Carmen Carmeli

Preservation by Carmen Carmeli
Friday 15 October - Monday 25 October 2021 All Day

I gather earths that I mainly source from nature and I make mortars, painting the landscapes they come from with these. From termite mounds to river sands, all are painting materials.

My practice is an ongoing dialogue with those materials. Responding to their qualities and colours, I layer, erode, polish and build up the surface in a process of creation and destruction. It’s often lots of fun!

The resulting works are immediate, tactile, weighty objects inspired by the abstract patterns found in nature.
