Processing the fox shroud
The collection of the fox shroud, its soaking in vinegar and drying prior to boiling in a eucalyptus leaf tea in the old copper cauldron.
Working into the shrouds using ochres collected in Arnhem Land and silk thread stitching is a studio process embedding my self in the bodily sensation of a becoming animal that is the decomposed matter absorbed by the canvas. The pure pigments of earth sit raised on the woven surface while clean thread penetrates the dank weave projecting a slight shadow upon the glittering skin of rabbit glue size.
