Andrea Num Glover – Energy Fields

$700.00 inc GST
Andrea Num Glover
Energy Fields, 2021
Magnani Pescia 100% cotton paper, 300gm, with five digitally printed images and one text page, red silk thread,
Edition of 5
Size: 26 (h), 27 (w), 2 (d) cm

Energy Fields alludes to the ever-changing plasticity of our planet in relation to the cosmos. From a molten core to a play-dough surface, and way beyond! Energy Fields hangs by a red silk thread vertically, symbolizing a human connection. The format for Energy Fields purposely places the images horizontally. Overlaid with an Indian wire toy, the horizontal image is turned, making a down, up, down, up, up sequence. This visually traces the vertical hanging format and also, mimics the imperceivable air movement in an unpressurised vehicle. This gives rise to the idea of simultaneously viewing earth and space.

Reduction
Timber, oil paint, leather, water-based printing ink, Hosho paper.
Size: 95 (h) x 14 (w) x 3 (d) cm

My book Reduction is a light-hearted exploration of the dual meaning of the term in both printmaking and van life. The images were printed using reduction wood-block techniques, with one block per page. The subject matter is a personal selection of some of the things which might be deemed essential when reducing one’s life in order to travel and live in a vehicle. From food and entertainment to family photographs, room must be found to fit it all in and the accordion pages tucked inside the cheerful wooden cover with handy map end papers reflect this economy of space.

Layering memories, emotions, and a profound sense of place, this book is a visual expression of the quiet stillness and sense of isolation and solitude that I experienced as I wandered the paths of my local botanical gardens and cemetery during long months of self isolation in 2020.

Birds

Linocut, silkscreen, collage, ink

Size: 21.5 (H) x 15 (W) x 150 (L) cm 

Birds is an expression of my time in lockdown. I went for many walks during those times and always was greeted by the sound and sight of many birds weaving their way through the bush and rail trail walks I embarked on each day.  I wanted to create a book that documented this time but also celebrated the support we might find around us! Each page of the book was a challenge for me as I tried to create the feelings in each composition that portrayed those walks.

Belinda Kopietz
Passionfruit and Thyme, 2020
Pamphlet stitch / two signatures / monotype, linocut / stencil / collage / various papers including Somerset, Iwaki, Tengucho, Mingeshi, Tyvek and Glacine
Unique state
Size: 19 (h) x 16.5 (w) x 2.5 (d) cm

Titled on the spine, a noxious weed and an essential culinary herb, this wordless book contains visual thoughts from the natural environment. The playful process of monotype pre-empted combinations of hand cut stencils, linocuts and ghost printing. The intention was to experiment, as if putting on new glasses to view with a fresh and more sensitive perspective. It explores physical adjacencies, contrast, positive and negative, hard and soft edge, rhythm and abrupt alteration, simplicity and complexity. The quality of paper-types and ink, of fold-outs and transparencies, are attempts at providing different experiences as each page is visited.

Size: closed – 27cm x 27cm x 3cm

As a rock climber my experience and perception of place is informed by cultural, kinaesthetic and corporeal knowledge. Rock climbers attribute qualities to a landscape, commemorate first ascents and document associated stories in written and pictorial representations. In this way climbers create their own community and connection with place.

My artist book ‘Ascent II’ includes printed images from my personal exploration of climbing mountains in Australia and abroad. The book format reflects on how climbers read landscapes, how we interpret their forms in the light of our own experience and memory, and that of our shared cultural community.

Long before I knew what printmaking was all about, I touched clay. Much fun in my studio and among claymates and many conferences later, I was equally enthralled by all the possibilities of mark making on a different surface. It became my ‘menage-à-trois’ after I acquired some printmaking and bookmaking skills. I hope that you can feel this joy as the pages pop open.

The Ancient City of Palmyra, Syr
Medium: A portfolio of 7 handmade Van Dyke Brown prints and small booklet
Unique state
Size 22cm x 29cm x 1cm

In 2007 I visited the ancient city of Palmyra and like many travellers I was overwhelmed by the extent of the site and entranced by the magnificence of the empire it once represented, especially the history of Palmyrene “Queen” Zenobia. Later I looked further into the history of the city, and I was struck by what an important part European investigations over time had played in influencing architectural thought and practice, particularly in 18th century England. In 2016-17 significant parts of the city were destroyed by ISIS. Fortunately, Syrian Government agencies and others are attempting to reconstruct some of the important structures with the aid of modern computer techniques as a guide.

Tea & Oranges VE 3/3
Hand coloured collagraph on hannemuhle paper
Unique state
Size: 22 (H) x 27 (W) x 60cm (D)

A line from Leonard Cohen’s song “Suzanne” inspires “Tea and Oranges”. Like Cohen’s song my book reflects on romance.

“Tea and Oranges” is a three-dimensional still life of the cosy ritual of tea and toast. It comprises four hand-coloured collagraphs in a concertina format.

The last picture is a variation on the popular domestic willow pattern plate which depicts ill-fated lovers transformed into birds eternally soaring over an oriental garden. My plate replaces chinoiserie with images from Waverley Cemetery.

“Tea and Oranges” is a contemporary comment on love and mortality.

Artist Proof
Size: 30.5 x 21.5 x 3.5cm, 465 pp

My main project here is national borders, lines on maps and in the sand, however, borders have also diversified into porous entities, cultural events, and conversely, sometimes weapons of rebuke. Borders have become broader, deeper, more inclusive borderlands. In view of this I wondered if New York, with its diversity and history, may be some iteration of a contemporary borderland.I lived in New York for a year and walked Manhattan, particularly Broadway, drawing, photographing, doing street performances. I worked on and off with the drawings and photos over the following ten years. It was a work in progress and a book in waiting. In 2019, I exhibited at the Centre for Book Arts, NYC. While there I revisited parts of this project, more photos, made the dry points on my return to Fremantle and, finally, there was this book completed.

Fold (Vol.2), 2020
Unique bookwork with screen printed paper folds in a clamshell box
Unique state, Box Binding: Joanna Kambourian
Size: W 18.4 x H24 x D 6.8cm

‘Fold, Vol.2′ (2020) is an artist book associated with haptic printed overlays and stacked paper folds. This work examines personal collections of vintage printed ephemera (in this case, old childrens’ encyclopedias). Presented in clamshell box this work holds outcomes in the interplay between identity, memory and nostalgia. Heavily influenced by Fluxus assemblages and ‘Duchamp-inspired’ recombination of everyday objects, this bookwork combines screenprinting and paper folding to reconfigure content to create multiple dichotomies of meaning.
