photography awards

i am a bit overwhelmed at the moment … a few competitions have come to fruition and i have been lucky enough to be overwhelmed with good feedback for photography entered, a couple of awards and some published pieces  …

IMAGE – the photography magazine of the Australian Photographic Society, July/August edition is featuring a page of my haiga (images with haiku) and i have an article to write for the next edition due in August.  This magazine is beautifully printed in full gloss and available at your local library.  This came about thanks to the contemporary folio that i am a part of.

Here is one of the pieces (the rest will be uploaded to blumoon)

a depleted (haiga)

this one won the SMALL PRINT Tasmanian Photographic Federation prize for 2009

its called Heritage

new published pieces – Gean Tree Press

It is always exciting to receive news of published pieces.  The Gean Tree Press has published, in their June 2009 edition, 2 haiku, 3 tanka, 3 haiga of mine.  I have uploaded half of them to the blumoon site.  (Will upload the other half tomorrow).

Please do visit Gean Tree Press  and read all the wonderful poets featured in this, the first issue. – the link will also be up in my blogroll at my poetry site.

i am travelling to Bali in a couple of weeks and i am thinking of doing another ‘foundart series’ …. see the first one here .  And with that in mind, i have been playing these past couple of weeks …

looking forward to seeing where these end up (as art and in places) ! ….  >>> Gina

poetry … haiku … freeXpression

i use blumoon to update my published pieces and when i posted the haiku recently commended and to be  published in june, ‘old oak’ i did a freeXpression search on my site and i cant find previously pubished haiku by this publication listed… so i shall do so in the next two posts …  the dates will be a little out but so be it !

i keep scrupulous track of published pieces in hardcopy and on my computer files … the website seems to have slipped …   🙂

etching press … poetry and what now ?

well … a sad happy day … i sold my etching press … i had been hemming and hawing for a year now and finally 3 months ago i put out a lot of flyers advertising the press, at a healthy but well-situated price (it was worth its weight thats for sure and better priced than many shop bought equipment).  This press was handmade, designed by an artist and very well engineered – it is a beautiful structure that i was loathe to sell.  I figured, if i got what i asked for, it was meant to be .. and so it all came to pass …

Thing is tis wonderful to pass it on to another and NO ONE without passion is going to buy a press !  … I figure that even if I get to doing nothing at all but art, starting tomorrow, the press is still not going to get a really good look in because my work has gone off in all kinds of other directions that i am very excited about …

so, roll on winter …  lets see what it brings (artwise).

in trying to choose just one picture that gives you a bit of the etching press i still settled on one that, well, is not an etching …

(drypoint and then drypoint/mixed media) … 🙂

camera club – july 2008

this one got a place in ‘altered reality’ EDI (electronic digital image)

interestingly the only changes to ‘reality’ were curves, levels and inversions.

as a straight out photo its quite ordinary – it comes up beautifully with alteration and has been used as the basis for an haiga.

haiga – the form (art and visual)

exploring the form and enjoying tremendously … a few zooming along at present …
