etegami crosses borders (australia)
It's been far too long since I updated the Etegami Crosses Borders series, but I will try to correct that with this post. The motivation behind the series is to explore how etegami can (and in my opinion, should) reflect the land and culture in which it is produced. Check out my earlier posts in this series and read about etegami artists in France and Israel.
Today I want to draw your attention to the art of Carole Marshall in Australia. You may have noticed her work posted on my mailart gallery. Carole began painting etegami soon after discovering my etegami blog. She quickly grasped the basic concepts, and it wasn't long before she had developed her own unique style and approach to etegami. I think her choices of subjects, accompanying words, and even the colors she uses, effectively reflect the land she lives in. Lately she's been painting uniquely Australian animals. I encourage you to visit Carole's entertaining blog at Origa-me Origa-me and see more of her etegami.
