I have been working on my Patched Publication taking photos of patching trees in the Waterloo Region. I am aiming to have my publication completed by the end of December and hope to have the books distributed to local libraries and available for sales on my website in the new year. I will let everyone know my launch day soon! In the mean time enjoys some photos! For more be sure to check out my instagram @jackiepartridge_ or #patchedproject#patchingtrees
Very excited to be working on Patched a book composed of poems and photographs of map paper embedded in trees as an act of mending. Thanks to the Waterloo Arts Fund I am able to create this publication after successfully receiving an artist grant!
Last month I attended the Women’s Studio Workshop Residency in Rosendale New York. I was working in the papermaking studio while I was there. I really enjoyed hiking in the area especially on the Rail Trail. While I was there I made a lot of paper working with maps and blue jeans. I got to try the vacuum table for the first time which was very exciting for my practice. I would highly recommend this residency to all the artists out there!
My work is being featured on Akimbo’s site in their season 1 episode 6 on AkimboTV hosted by Terence Dick. Be sure to check it out along with the work of other artists that deal with the theme of Home in their work.
