Project Description

Alchemy of
the Elements

An Autumn Exploration of Eco Print

Michelle Morgan
Final year student.
Masters in Therapeutic Arts Practice – community arts and health stream workplace practicum.
In collaboration with Habitat Uniting Church.

Art making is a way to express what’s present for me, to understand, to follow my inner process. I’m inspired by mentors who encourage me to keep making art as a way of making meaning. I love that eco-print teaches me to be patient, to welcome the unexpected, and that I’m not in control. Also, that collaboration (with nature, and with others) brings gifts that are not possible if I’m just operating under my own steam. I love the bold colour that has emerged in these works. Also, discovering what was left behind in the pot has been a complete surprise and caught my curiosity.
