Drawings and Mixed Media

Artwork by Andrea Goodman

Homage to Trees, 1 of a six part series of mixed media artworks by Andrea Goodman

Mixed Media - Drawings with roots

In this six part series called 'Homage to Trees' I am exploring working with post consumer recycled materials, in mixed media assemblies with pen and ink drawings. In 1 of 6, pictured to the right, a piece of wood showing patterns left by insects is incorporated into the hangar along with brass and copper wires. The texture of the corrugated cardboard background mimics the painting of bark and wood textures under the pen and ink drawing. The work is finished with mat acrylic sealant for durability.

Two of Six features a monoprinted painting behind the pen and ink drawing (the monoprinted bark texture was created using recycled celphane)

Three of Six features a security envelope with watercolour as the 'painted' background image behind the pen and ink drawing, the pattens of security envelopes fascinate me and appear in several works in this series.

The remaining three pieces in this series are nearly done, stay tuned for updates soon!

mixed media artwork, pen and ink drawing mounted on contrasting papers and corrugated, with a wire hanger incorporating old scrap metal pieces This pen and ink tree drawing is mounted on contrasing coloured paper and then onto corrugated, with an itegral hanger made with recycled wire, found old metal objects. I like incorporating recycled paper and corrugated into drawings of trees, I think of it as a way to honour the life of the tree. Incorporating found manufactured objects that I find on my walks, most often metal but sometimes glass or plastic, is just another way of connecting my artwork and my environment.

Gadgets, embellishments and jewelry like wire frames

I used to love making jewelry, but I got tired of the limitations of 'wearable' art - it limits the choice of materials, size, shape and weight. Incorporating jewelry like embellishments into frames for artwork is gives far more scope for exploration, and lets me play in three dimensions too!
