We Heart Paper
During the summer period of late 2010 – 2011 a group of ten creative women from The Queensland College of Art on the Gold Coast banded together, to take part in an exhibition centred around their love of paper. Each produced a piece of work as their own personal homage to paper.
My response was a series of four paper sculptured animals. Each was created using a selection of printed and textured paper stocks of varying weights. Each frame measures 45 x 45cm in size. As an added bonus for me, several of my pieces sold during the length of the exhibition.
The exhibition was held in the White Box Gallery from the 21st February – 4th March 2011, sponsored by K.W.Doggett Fine Paper and Liveworm Gold Coast.
The (Paper) Idea
In the beginning there was a word, and the word was paper. The We Heart Collective is the brain child of Dominique Falla, who in the midst of a gold-tinged brain explosion decided to bring together some of the people who shared her love of paper in a unique group exhibition: the We Heart Paper exhibition, was held in February 2011, and from there, the idea of a We Heart Collective took off.
For the ten women involved in the We Heart Paper exhibition, paper is a treasure, a rich medium with its own life and unique characteristics. From the somatic to the olfactory we are all guilty of overt displays of paper affection. Through We Heart Paper we can share this perspective with others.
We have now grown to a collective of 14 women and have regular exhibitions, inspired by various things we ‘Heart’.
