The Tide Spoke - Online Exhibition

I'm delighted to have The tide spoke presented by Onespace Gallery in their first online exhibition. The tide spoke features a body of colourful prints developed while I was in residence this year at Scuola Internazionale di Grafica Venice.

Working with an archive of paper cut stencils, I layered fresh colours each day creating opportunity for new compositions and a specific language in response to memories of place and experience. Back home in my studio, prints were paired in combinations, and others completed with additions of collage. These prints speak of the many conversations I encountered during my residency and thoughts on the value of healthy environments. 

As Louise Martin-Chew suggests in her accompanying essay:

"For decades, Moss has produced work about her Australian environments, and has made regular forays into other cities to explore the connections between urban communities and their green spaces. These prints are significant in her practice in their new adaptation of media, but also see her listening in to the tidal languages of Venice, mixed with Australian imagery and increasingly heated environmental conversations."
