Rust Blooms, 2-14 Nov, Auckland

Rust Blooms is a joint exhibition by Julienne Francis and Celia Walker 
at Depot Gallery in Devonport from 2-14 November,
exploring the random and unexpected effects of rust printing
 in both wall-hung works and three-dimensional artists’ books.  

The varying hues of weathered iron are incorporated with other print processes in a range of new work. 
 Both artists have been accumulating discarded objects and fragments 
that are used for eco-printing onto mulberry, kozo and other printmaking papers.  
The shifting rust tones are used for works that look at nature, history and more abstract forms.
