I can say that it started with new work processing for the printmaking exhibition ‘Marked by Water’ although I can trace back to the old work ‘Fish Moons’.
Even after I created the new work ‘Wave’ for the exhibition and it travelled Curve Gallery in New Castle and Warringah Printmakers Studio Gallery in Sydney, I didn’t recognised the ‘dot’ significantly.
Then I went back to my soft ground plate to work on it. The dot appeared to me bigger this time. How effective and fascinating with own unique character!
Now I can empathise the feeling of John Baldessari ‘s delight when he was placing dots on people’s faces. Now I can understand Yayoi Kusama’s dot obsession.
It is hard to define the meaning of ‘dot’ in my works yet as I just started with it. I put the mark of dot for the new exciting beginning.
The ‘Wave’ will be shown at Angel Restaurant Gallery in Queenscliff in August.
