It’s strange how a technique that reigned supreme since the Bronze Age has fallen so deeply out of practice. I’ve been exploring ideas with plaster of Paris and pigments combining fresco painting with pigment printing and carving. I’m now working towards an exhibition titled Archaeology at Logan Art Gallery with the work of extraordinary FS Helfisch.
Some ideas from a weekend session exploring fresco, I believe that the mummified rat was gifted to FS after an archaeological dig At the School of Art. .
