Breathing in Trees

'Tokyo wild - residents and architecture, plants are both' detail in progress ©2018 Nicola Moss.
For me, deadlines make the studio work happen. More risk taking, less procrastination or delayed contemplation....make a decision.... move on, it's an exciting time in the studio.
Breathing in Trees is my upcoming solo exhibition at Gallery HOTA, Home of the Arts, Gold Coast. It will be a wonderful opportunity to show current work, including some artworks returning from my 'Tokyo wild' exhibition at Youkobo Art Space Tokyo. I'll have more details closer to October.

Tokyo Wild

It's been all action in the studio this month, making new works for my upcoming cultural exchange exhibition Tokyo wild at Youkobo Art Space, Tokyo in September 2018. Conversations with local Tokyo residents during my open studio last year, provided many thoughtful responses to the value of green space in their everyday lives. This cultural exchange is a view into city and nature relationships, exploring potential futures for our increasingly populated cities.

Exhibition at Hammarlunda Konststall, Sweden

During residency at ARNA, Sweden, my papercut artworks were on show, part of the Basta Biennalen at Hammarlunda Konststall. I had a lovely time speaking with visitors about their thoughts on healthy environment, plastic pollution, sustainability and well-being, making many local/global connections.

Day trip to Skaralid National Park Sweden

Breathing in Trees - I've been doing a lot of it in Sweden. It has been cold and grey and windy some days, but I'm thrilled to have been at ARNA in Autumn, to see the foliage colour and change of season. It has given me a sense of the Inside and Outside nature of life here.

Artist in Residence - ARNA Sweden

I've been in Harlosa, Sweden on residence at ARNA for two weeks now. The village sits in the centre of the Avian Kingdom, with beautiful lakes and farms surrounding. I've been on walks soaking up the autumn colours, vegetation, layers of land use and new sounds. The wind makes everything dance and foliage can turn to gold in the sunlight.
The beanie is getting plenty of use.
